Welcome to the Poison Bottle QuiltAlong!
I will be offering one block (two bottles) here each month, beginning October 15, 2015. Each pattern in the BOM will be released on the 15th of the month and will be free for two months. After the free two-month period, each pattern will be available for sale in my shop.
General instructions are here as a free download. General finishing instructions will be posted near the end of the 12 month period.
I have designed 12 blocks, showcasing 25 rare and unusual poison bottles. These designs are based on real antique poison bottles. As I release each pattern, I will tell a little about the history of each of the bottles on my blog, show my in-progress photos, show tutorials of embellishment techniques, and give variation ideas.
I have invited many quilting friends to share their personal interpretations of my blocks. I hope you will visit their blogs each month and see how they envision my designs.
I invite you to upload your finished block each month in my flickr group.
