What's in the box...
Olive Branch by Laundry Basket Quilts : 20 x fat sixteenths
Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts needs no introduction to many quilters as she's known not only as a s designer of traditional fabrics & batiks for both Moda and Makower / Andover Fabrics, but also as a designer of gorgeous traditional quilts and patterns. Her fabrics are always very useable in lots of contexts and her new Olive Branch collection is the perfect example. The subtle sprig prints on toning backgrounds make great blenders as well as a delicious coordinated palette when used together as we've done in this month's Home Sweet Home pattern.
Linen/cotton blend (natural) : 1 x fat quarter
Honestly, we love this fabric from Stof and we use it all the time for backgrounds that don't distract but are not boring - the natural colour and slight texture add just enough interest for a rustic look.
Mouline Special Stranded Cotton embroidery thread by DMC : 1 skein
You'll need some embroidery thread for the redwork text on our pattern so of course, we've included some. DMC has been developing award-winning fine threads and specialist yarns for years so we're confident they know a thing or two about it. This is their classic cotton floss, still manufactured in the same mill where it's been spun for centuries. Colours will vary but are selected to coordinate with the Olive Branch fabrics.
Home Sweet Home Table Centre pattern
Inspired by Edyta's own Summer Village quilt pattern, our new table centre design takes those charming houses and translates them into a more portable size. Perfect for sewing in the garden or in front of the telly, the English Paper Pieced version includes templates, redwork patterns and full instructions. We hope you enjoy sewing it!
