Two New Block of the Month Quilts!

May 26, 2017   /   bynnettles  / Categories :  Feeds

There’s so much to love about Block of the Month quilts. First there’s the anticipation of receiving a fun monthly shipment in the mail; then there’s the excitement when your “quilt mail” arrives! And of course, there’s the pleasure of having a larger quilt project in the works that you can create a little at a time while you carry on with your other projects.

We have two new Block of the Month quilts available, and we’re so excited to show them to you. One is a bright and happy modern design featuring star blocks. The other is a lovely batik quilt featuring appliqué. For each of these great BOM projects you will receive a monthly shipment that includes fabric and instructions to make a section of the quilt. Plus – you’ll get access to free video tutorials on QNNtv.com to help guide you to completion!

Aviary: Next up, check out Aviary – a new 9-month BOM that just started this month! This batik quilt was designed by Keith Phillips of QuiltFusion and features beautiful bird and nature appliques of various sizes and shapes. All appliqué pieces will come pre-cut and fused, so all you will have to do is cut the backgrounds and assemble the quilt. You’ll learn some great techniques while making this one, like how to use an applique pressing sheet to make applique assemblies to speed up the construction of the quilt top. The quilt also features a unique filigree border. The finished size is 72 1/2″ x 87 1/2″.

Kits will include batiks from Hoffman California Fabrics, the program sponsor. The free video lessons are taught by Nancy Mahoney and the first couple are available now!

Backing fabric for Aviary is also available separately.

EBONY TEES AND SEAMLY CARDI IN MERINO JERSEY

This was my second year as a counselor at Camp Workroom Social and I was determined to be smarter in the wardrobe department than I was last year. I wanted clothing that was practical, stylish, comfy and interchangable. I already knew that I was bringing one pair of shoes (some back lace up boots which were much better than the heeled ones I wore last year) so everything needed to go with those and jeans. My color palette would be black (no surprise there), gray, white, blue, and camel. These really are the colors I wear all year long anyways. I am such a sucker for neutrals. This gave me the perfect excuse to sew up a few new things. After thinking about the criteria above, I settled on the Ebony tee in the cropped length and the Seamly Wrapped Cardigan which I had sewn up last year and loved. As for fabric choice, that was easy. I loved working with the merino wool jersey last year from The Fabric Store. They carry the perfect colors for my taste, plus the merino jersey feels so luxurious while still being washable. The perfect fall fabric in my book. I ended up […]
