Printed Summer wreath BOM Month 5 Goosanders

Printed for Month 5 of the Summer Wreath Block of the Month. Goosanders: measuring 10 by 12quot; finished.



A soft palette of summer sky blues with light neutral patchwork, and a rainbow of summer flowers and riverbank animals. This quilt measures 40 by 40quot; and would be ideal on the wall or to cuddle up under. It is made from 5 central blocks and a further four border blocks to make a total of nine.


The quilt itself is in my usual style, so it is a patchwork background with raw edge applique sewn with free motion embroidery. You don#39;t need a fancy machine to sew it but your machine needs to be able to do free motion embroidery. The pattern contains basic instructions for the patchwork. I don#39;t go into a lot of detail on patchwork as I am assuming that you know the basics but other than the odd half square triangle, it is all pretty simple. The kits contain the fabrics, freezer paper and stabilizer you will need to complete the top. You will need to purchase your own threads but I do list every thread that I use so you can use the same if you wish to. The fabrics are supplied as a rectangle/square big enough for the shape you need. No laser cutting so you are relying on freezer paper/pencil and scissors to cut the shapes out yourself. I like this step as it is quite therapeutic. I label all the fabrics with little stickers which tell you what they are to be used for so it makes it a little easier to know which bit goes where. I use raw edge techniques and the patterns are using those instructions, but I will put in sufficient fabric that you could also use needle turn techniques, but no instructions will be given.




I am based in the UK and I am happy to ship worldwide. If you are outside the UK then there will be an additional £3 postage charge for either the patterns/kits each month as that is how much extra it costs me.




Hopefully that all makes sense, but please don#39;t hesitate to ask if anything is unclear.
