Sit back, relax and enjoy a slow hand sewing project with this lovely hoop art kit. Made using a curved English paper-piecing technique, this pretty flower is made in three hot coloured prints from the Blue Sky collection from Laundry Basket Quilts, and then backed onto a grey Essex linen background before being hand quilted.
This kit includes the three fabric prints, a fat quarter of background fabric and wadding, template plastic for fussy-cutting your shapes, a 10" wooden hoop, an embroidery floss, full-size templates to cut out and full instructions.
You will need; * a Sewline glue pen which you can purchase here * thread for piecing, I use Auriful's 50wt which you can purchase here * a 16" square of butter muslin or similar fine fabric for the backing.
Finished size: 10" round
Skill level: Intermediate (skilled hand-piecer) Though these small projects are a great way to learn a new skill, so why not give it a go!
