Memories of Provence

I want this pattern! I just read Thelma's post over at Cupcakes 'n' Daisies about her BOM rehab.  She was grateful for the encouragement to finish half-started projects.  This is where I first heard of Memories of Provence by Monique Dillard at Open Gate Quilts.  Have you seen it?

Isn't it beautiful?  How did I not know about this before??  I am fond of Dillard, but had never seen this BOM before.  I've been searching for an hour for the pattern, but can only find links to BOMs that are 2-3 months into the deal.  What am I going to do if I can't find this pattern? I want!  I'm sending an email to Open Gate to see if it's even possible to find the pattern w/o signing up for a BOM.  Any suggestions?


  1. I don't even know what a BOM is, so... no.

    1. It stands for "Block of the Month" which means that instead of paying between $200-$500 for the pattern and fabric of a full-sized quilt all at once up-front, you are charged between $20-$40 per month and the company sends you enough fabric for the one block and instructions how to make it. Usually, in the last month, you also receive the fabric for the borders and binding (if applicable) and instructions on how to put it all together. It's usually a better way for most people to purchase the quilt kits they want because they are more likely to be able to afford $20-40 a month than a lump sum of several hundred.
