Favorite Things A weekly stitch-a-long beginning January 10, 2023 Even if you didn't start with us in January, please feel free to jump in any time! You may still order weekly or get all caught up at once.
Details: 1) This is a thirteen week event (twelve blocks and a finishing week).
2) The blocks will finish at 12" x 12" and will each be a combination of cotton piecing and wool applique. The piecing will be the same for all twelve blocks, but the fabrics will be a variety of prints and colors. If you use all twelve blocks, the finished size will be roughly 46" x 58", depending on the borders.
3) A new block will be revealed each week on Tuesdays but will be available to preorder a few days before each reveal. That way, by the time you see the reveal, it may already be in your mailbox!
4) The cost of each week's kit will be $16.95, plus shipping. The cost of the finishing kit (optional) will be determined later. The cost of each week's pattern (paper or digital) will be $4.00. Please note that if you order the paper pattern alone, my website automatically charges $4.50 for shipping, but I will refund most of that when I send the pattern.
5) Kits will include a generous amount of the three cottons to piece the background, the wool for the appliques, stabilizer for the back of the 6" block center, the pattern, and the buttons (when used). Kits will not include fusible web or the threads. I will list the threads that I used (either size 12 pearl cotton or embroidery floss) individually so that you may order just the colors you need. Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 (the fusible web that I use) will be available to order as well.
6) How to order: You may purchase just the patterns each week or purchase the kits. There is no obligation to order all of them (maybe you want to just pick your favorites and make a smaller wall hanging). You may order them individually...I will announce on my Facebook page when preordering is available and watch for the new block reveal each Tuesday. You also may sign up to have them sent automatically each week. For this option, please call me (218-556-0875) with your shipping and credit card information. I will keep it on file here for the duration of this event and send your order out a few days before each reveal.
