What is a Sarah Fielke BOM? Unlike most Blocks of the Month, a Sarah Fielke BOM starts from a hand drawn sketch. Each month a new section of the quilt is revealed through PDF patterns and instructional videos, hosted on this private website. The delivery format allows you to work with your own fabric, meaning your quilt will be a reflection of your personal style and colour taste - and it saves on shipping! Work through the quilt at your own pace with help from Sarah, while chatting and sharing with other quilters through a private Facebook group.

For those who signed up for the subscription payments, monthly payments for the program begin from the day you sign up, and continue for 12 months (depending on which quilt you chose) on the same day of each month. When all the payments are made they will automatically stop. For example if you signed up on October 31 2018, your final payment of a 12 month program will be September 30, 2019. These quilts are exclusive to BOM members until after the program finishes, at which time the full quilt patterns will be available for purchase retail, and for wholesale to shops. The 2019 BOM is ONLY available through my website for the first year. It is NOT available through quilt shops or any other website until the program has ended.
This design is a brand new original Sarah Fielke design and have not been seen anywhere else before. Quite obviously from looking at the sketch, it will not be able to be worked in the usual manner of a "Block of the Month" - i.e., you will not receive 12 blocks, one at a time. This quilt will be sectioned out in 12 months over the year, working from the centre out in border order.
Also stating the obvious - these quilt requires a fair amount of work to complete! However there will be people stitching at all different paces and abilities, and people joining up at all different times throughout the year, and there is no pressure to be at the same point as anyone else.
Work at your own pace, and enjoy the process!
