Find a cosy spot on the sofa and relax into this wonderful hand-sewing project featuring my favourite technique, curved English paper-piecing. Learn how to piece your shapes together with a simple flat back stitch, before appliquéing them onto the background, and finishing off with some gorgeous decorative big-stitch hand quilting or simple machine quilting.
This kit is aimed at the intermediate sewist, although with full colour, easy-to-follow instructions, you will soon pick up the technique. You can also follow my demo on my first appearance on Sewing Street which you can watch here.
This Summer Bloom kit features 16 prints from Liberty of London's quilting cotton collection and plus all the fabric you need for the front, including Linen Texture Vanilla for the background, Linen Texture Sapphire for the borders, and Linen Texture Petal for the binding, a full set of pre-cut paper templates (44 in total) and full instructions.
You will also need: • Temporary fabric glue pen - which you can add to your order above or purchase refills here • thread for piecing - I recommend a 50wt cotton • 28" square of wadding which you can add to your order above • 75cm square of backing fabric.
