Give away.

I have been thinking a lot of the direction I want to take my design work. Terry and I are thinking of collaborating in the design process. As it is he does have in put and he writes the patterns for me. It could also mean a name change from Paisley Jam Designs which is me to something that will be a name for us both to design under together.

I asked in my last post if you would like BOM's with zoo animals or a boys transport themed BOM. I have other ideas as well. These will be designed exclusively for our shop Patchwork By Sea.  We will also have a new website with on line shop early in the new year which we are very excited about.

So I am asking my blog reader's for your valued opinions. As to what sort of theme's if any you would like to see in a BOM. What is it that gets you to buy a BOM ?? is it the style, your favourite  colours, fabrics, or do you buying it to make for a  family member or friends because it would be something you like ? or just because you are addicted to getting a wonderful parcel in the post each month?

 So If you please leave me a comment with some suggestions on what you would like to buy in the way of patterns and BOM's and what you think of my design work, you will go into a draw for a pack of my patterns that I have designed so far ! :0). (photo's below)

 I will choose one lucky winner of the Pattern pack on Monday night and maybe a few single patterns if I find it hard to choose. Please put where you live in your comment so I can see where my blog is reaching too. :0)

Good luck and Thank you!

Hope you have a wonderful day where ever you are :)
Happy Quilting

  1. I have collected many and even completed some BOM s . My favourites are the ones with stitcheries .I enjoy making quilts for family and friends and with a new grandchild on the way I like the idea of a zoo animal quilt .

  2. I love a BOM for its colour themes and am in love with the blues of lately. At the moment I am quilting a couple of quilts and then I can start a new quilt from scratch. :)

  3. I love stitcheries!!! Currently doing "Life is Beautiful". Drawn firstly by the stitcheries and secondly by the fabric. Would love to see an all owl BOM with stitcheries. Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi Kellie. Congrats on being the winner of the pattern pack.
      Please emails us on

  4. I love doing stitcheries and hexagons. To combine them would be great. Love all william morris fabrics by michele hill and barbara brackman.

  5. I love doing stitcheries and anything to do with Christmas.

  6. I would love anything to do with nature (especially birds). I am currently sewing your Dragonfly Chase, and loving it. I live in Aberfoyle Park and visit you shop regularly. Jude

  7. I love BOM's but as I'm currently still working on Life is beautiful after 3 years the next one I would really like to do would be a quilt with different blocks of sceneries or animals. Something with the option of machine appliqué lol then I might actually complete it.... Felicity

  8. Zoo animals are great and are more unisex. I choose BOM based on their design. A pieced BOM would be great as they are often stitcheries.
