Saturday Sampler Applique 2023 Class with Louise - Blessings of Summer
Celebrate the joys of warm summer days with twirling pinwheels, a wagon full of daisies, yummy ice cream cones, and more! Pattern includes full-color images of each block, a fabric selection guide, the Shabby Fabrics Applique Guide, and all instructions to complete the quilt. Finishes to 55" × 65"
An embellishment kit is available with buttons, pearls, charm, clothespins, jute cord, and embroidery floss.
45" wide backing matching the project is available. Backing includes enough fabric for 3" extra on each side for long arm quilting. It is beautiful!
Registration fee of $65.00 will get you started with the pattern and the first block for our Saturday Sampler program. Bring your completed block back the following month and receive the feature fabrics for your next block FREE. Each block kit will have all the feature fabrics needed to make your blocks. You will need to provide your own background fabrics for the blocks, or you can purchase our background kit with the variety of background fabrics you need for the project. We also have a finishing kit with the sashing, borders, and binding. Or you can get the Background and Finishing kit all in one. The fabrics in these kits will match the feature fabrics you are getting for your blocks.
Note: if you order the background fabrics, we will have the background squares cut for you and included with each block. They will be the same fabrics we have used in the store sample.
You will need to bring your finished block to our monthly meeting on the 3rd Saturday at 9:00 am or on the 4th Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm in order to get your next block FREE. You'll also receive a 'free pass' to use one time if you are unable to come and get your free block on the designated date and time. Otherwise, if you are unable to come, you can purchase your block at any time during the month.
Note: if you are not local and would like to do this as a traditional block of the month, we'd love to have you join us! For the traditional block of the month, it will also be a $65 registration fee (which includes your full pattern) and then $24.95 per month for twelve months. That will include all fabrics for the top, including the sashing, borders and binding. We are happy to ship to you each month.
We also have full kits available with pattern, fabric for blocks, sashing, borders, and binding, or you can also purchase just the pattern if you'd like.
Note: The fabrics in our project are similar to the ones on the pattern cover, but those fabrics are no longer available. We are using a combination of fabrics from a variety of manufacturers to create the same look. Let us know if you'd like a picture or would like to discuss the substitutions. The fabrics we have selected are very beautiful!
