Is it nearly Christmas yet? Well, in sewing terms, YES, it is!
With the brand new range of Scandi Christmas 2017 fabrics just in from Makower UK, I’ve already had the sewing machine threaded up and am delighted with this Christmas quilt!
The pattern was sketched out over dinner at Mum’s house a few Friday nights ago, the quilt top which you see below was completed by Monday and I absolutely loved every minute of sewing this one up!
As a fabric shop owner and a quilter, I write my patterns with the standard size of a metric Fat Quarter in mind so that there is a minimal amount of fabric left over!
Hope you like!
FREE Christmas Pattern – Part One:
You will need 12 different metric Fat Quarters – I used 5 red and 7 grey
Cut the FQs into 4″ squares. You will get 20 squares per FQ – left over squares can be used to piece part of the quilt backing
Sew squares together following colour placement as shown in photo
I am currently adding borders, backing and binding – I will post Part Two of the pattern and the quilt’s final size as soon as I get it finished!
I know that our wonderful ‘Love Stitching Ladies’ enjoy a wee bargain so recently I’ve been preparing these beautiful half metre fabric pieces, wrapping them in our ‘signature’ pink ribbon and selling them at the bargain SALE price of only £4 each.
More fabulous fabrics will be prepared into £4 parcels soon but this Makower UK Sew Retro haberdashery fabric has already been hugely popular!
Although not yet available on our website, please do not hesitate to contact me via email with your order should you wish to make on (or two!) of these wonderful parcels yours!
Hello and welcome to my very first blog post! Finally I get to put a massive ‘tick’ beside the entry ‘get blogging’ on my ‘to do’ list!
The aim of my blog is to give you an exclusive ‘sneak peak’ at what goes on behind the scenes here at Love Stitching so expect lots of photos of brand new fabrics being unpacked, pattern design sketches, patchwork ideas and generally sewing chat! I even plan to bring you a lovely selection of FREE patterns very soon.
In the meantime though, these fabulous ‘Mixed Bag’ by Studio M for Moda fabrics are the very latest to have graced my cutting board and I’m delighted to say that a beautiful basket of Fat Quarters have been loving prepared!
