Storyteller’s First Show ….

Yes I know this is not breaking news … in fact it could be said to be slightly late news but thought I would let you know anyhow (life has been rather hectic here lately). At the recent Sydney Quilt Show Danni from Eppiflex announced that she will shortly start the first BOM based on my book The Storyteller’s Sampler Quilt. the BOM

Tall Tales (from Raconteur)

Danni plans to release her BOM to coincide with the release of the book, which is expected to happen within the next month so woohooo!!!

Initially she will be running the BOM as slightly larger than the original blocks. This is because the original blocks are based on a 1cm hexagonal grid giving blocks that have a 4cm height and a side length of 2.25in. Danni thought the tppl might prefer to work on a 3in side length hexagon so that these blocks could fit in with other 3in blocks that have been doing the circuit lately.

If she has enough interest she is also considering offering the blocks at the original size. So the choice will be yours.

Another point that will be different about Danni and The storyteller’s Sampler Quilt is that her BOM will be done using the eppiflex templates which everyone says are perfect for EPP. Having never been a fan of EPP I can’t give a personal opinion on this but if it is a method you like then it is definitely better than the old cardboard templates …. or you could try the method that I show in the book …. old fashioned piecing …. just a suggestion 🙂

Snippets Patterns & Templates

Snippets is small wallhanging using seven blocks from soon to be released The Storyteller’s Sampler Quilt. It is perfect for an introduction to the techniques needed for making the original quilt.

The blocks, and directions for completing the individual blocks may be found in the book.
Extra templates plus a pattern for the setting diamonds are needed to complete the wallhanging and these are provided free on the website. Also provided are the steps for completing the wallhanging. However the patterns for the individual blocks are not included as these are all in the book.S
