What's in the box...
Scrap Selection of mixed prints : 8 pieces (8" x 21")
Recently we've seen some comments on social media the "the true spirit of patchwork" isn't about coordinated fabric collections but about using up scraps. Whether you believe that or not, it can certainly be fun to mix & match - but you may not have that much choice in your stash if you're just starting out. So this month we've been having fun putting together some lovely curated selections of mixed traditional prints for your boxes, perfect for a scrappy look in our two featured patterns.
Quilter's Calico : 1 metre
In keeping the the theme, we've included some lovely soft calico as background fabric to go with your prints. Natural Calico (or muslin as they call it in the USA) used to be a quilter's staple for backgrounds and backings. Although we see less of it nowadays, its still the ideal contrast to a selection of busy prints in different colours.
Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles : pack of 5
Schmetz has been a leading manufacturer of quality sewing machine needles since 1851 and their Universal needles are perfect general use needles. If you haven't changed your needle lately, now you have no excuse.
Droplets Tablecloth Quilt pattern
Our new Droplets pattern is designed to use your scrappy selection in a random-but-controlled way! (Perfect for those of you who struggle with random) Keeping the large and small squares of each fabric together gives some consistency to the design even with a mixed selection of prints.. and the scrappy pieced borders completes the vintage look.
Applique Hearts Cushion pattern
In case you want to make something smaller, we're also including our Applique Hearts cushion pattern. It's another design that's ideal for a scrappy selection of prints and you'll have enough fabric to make more than one cushion cover if you want.
