March 2020 BOX OF DELIGHTS
What’s in the box…
Super Bloom by Makower : 4 x fat quarters & 2 x fat eighths
March means spring and spring means flowers and we have some fabulous florals for you this month! Super Bloom is the glorious new collection from perennial (see what we did there?) favourite designer Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. Super Bloom is a large collection full of her trademark mix of large florals, sprigged blossom, ditsy repro prints and floral stripes in a lovely springlike palette of light and dark blues, pinks, reds, tan and cream. Edyta's collections are fabulous for creating a scrappy feel in your quilt, but with beautifully co-ordinated colours and the knowledge that they will all work together. We’ve included two each of the large prints, the small prints and the border stripes, but there is much more to the collection so do look online or when you next visit the shop
Linen Texture by Makower : 0.5 metre
Our patterns this month need some contrasting background fabric so we’re also including half a metre of Linen Texture in Cream (colour 1473-Q).
Mettler Silk-Finish Cotton 50 Thread x 2
Our go-to thread for piecing is this lovely soft 50-weight cotton from Mettler. It’s mercerised for strength and a smooth finish and comes in 250 colours, of which we’ve provided two to blend with your Super Bloom fabrics.
Broderie Perse in Bloom Wallhanging pattern
Broderie Perse (French for “Persian Embroidery”) is a very old appliqué technique of using cutting out fabric motifs and combining them to create an image on a base fabric. It was often used when Chintz fabrics were popular and can be seen in many antique British quilts. This pattern shows you how to make four Broderie Perse blocks with your box contents, which can be finished as wallhangings, or you could go on to make our second project.
Broderie Perse in Bloom Quilt pattern
This pattern takes your blocks, and with added fabrics, turns them in a lovely floral quilt. Please note that you will need to purchase extra Super Bloom fabrics to make the quilt.
