The Seed Packet Quilt : A Blooming Spring Sew-Along



 

The  Seed Packet Quilt : A Blooming Spring Sew-Along

The Seed Packet Quilt features a beautiful bouquet of fussy cut florals. (Leaves, and vines are also great!) So, gather your floral fabrics and scraps for a day of easy and relaxed sewing with Laurie. We will expand our blooming garden options by sharing and swapping fabric and shopping. Your garden will be in bloom by the end of the day.

This free pattern can be “planted” and arranged in a variety of ways using 4 ½” and/or 8 ½” squares. The beauty of our garden quilts grows from the variety of floral materials that we each contribute. Please plan to bring /purchase the equivalent of 1 yard to share. We can use medium, large and extra large florals but we will discuss the options at the beginning of class. Large Kaffe prints work really well but my quilt includes fabrics from many designers, old and new. Some batiks also work well.

A kit will be available, that you can purchase which includes a variety of fabrics which you can add to if you want to make your Seed Packet larger. Kit should be available by the end of January. Stop in to see the sample to get ideas.

 Skill level: Advanced beginner. If you have learned the basics of quilting you can make this quilt!

Wednesday, April 10, from 10:00am-4:00pm. Laurie will guide you until 2:30 but participants are welcome and encouraged to stay in the sewing studio until 4:00 p.m. Bring a lunch.( We have a refrigerator and pot for making tea.

Cost:$60. Class fee includes printed pattern and some starter floral fabrics for sharing.
