Octopus' Garden Block of the Month / Full Kit
Finished Size 70" x 70"
We are really excited to offer this great Block of the Month. You are going to love this ocean-based applique quilt designed by Pearl Pereira called Octopuses Garden! This gorgeous quilt was inspired by colorful fish that inhabit our oceans. The quilt is set in a beautiful album style setting with 24" center block surrounded by twelve 12 pictorial blocks. Each block is filled with colorful sea life, coral , shell and embroidery details. Full size numbered drawing for hand applique or your favorite method.
Our BOM is made up of all batiks with as close to the original quilt fabrics as possible. We are also including the ultrasuede lite pack needed for the quilt. However, it does not include the ribbon leaves, which is available on Pearl's website.
Starting at the end of January you will receive one block each month for 14 months that includes the fabric for the appliques, background and patterns for just $25.95 each, plus $2.95 shipping where applicable. Reserve you spot by purchasing the first month either online or in the shop. We will contact you to arrange for monthly payments.
If the full quilt seems too much for you, we will be offering a limited number of kits for just the 24" center block featuring the diving bell with the octopus and fish surrounding it. More information on this offering will be coming soon. Please let us know if you are interested.
We also highly recommend you purchase the Sulky Thread Pack that has all 12 Sulky threads used in the quilt. This 12 wt. thread pack includes Petite Spools # 0567, 1001, 1005, 1056, 1078, 1181, 1184, 1175, 1230, 1240, 1299, and 4019. The price is $17.99. Click here to order online.
Still not sure? We will be showing off Pearl's quilt at the Road To California Quilt Show and will have a limited number of full kits available for sale, which includes the pattern and all fabrics for the top (including the ultrasuede lite) except the ribbon leaves. We have two versions of the kit, both are the same except one includes the pattern and one is fabric only. The kits are available online with only a $9.50 shipping fee (US only). If you are going to the Road To California Quilt Show in January, you can save the shipping cost and pick it up there. To reserve a kit for pick up at Road (or in the shop), we require a $50.00 deposit. The deposit for the kit can be paid either in our shop or online.
