Do you want to quilt along with me? from right in your lounge chair each night… from anywhere in the world?
If so, you only have a small window of opportunity to join in..
From now until Midnight 30th September Australian time you can join up by visiting here and purchase the precut pack you will need to complete the mystery quilt. Okay, so that’s not free then you say – but you need these pre-cuts to be able to make the project – and instead of having to purchase a full pack of every different shape poor Tessie has spent hours cutting just the amount you will need for a very good price..
But – the pattern – all 26 parts delivered by email – will be free – for those who have signed up by the 30th September – after that it will need to be purchased from a store running it as a BOM project…
So this free offer is a little thankyou to all of you who have followed me over the past 14 years, who have supported me, bought my patterns, encouraged me and thanked me for bringing a little joy into your life.
And it is for you, stitching friends around the world to learn the joy of English Paper piecing the Hugs ‘n Kisses way!
Join with us on this 26 part Quilt along – learn many shapes, techniques, a little gluestick applique and more.
I will take you step by step through the mystery quilt learning a new block, shape or technique with each installment.. The final quilt top will measure approximately 48” x 48”. Most blocks involve handwork, with a small amount of simple machine piecing – and I have assembled the blocks by machine. But all the individual blocks are appliqued or paper pieced by hand – just your little bit of daily therapy… not too much, you’ll easily be able to keep up with just those five minutes of stitching per day or so..
We will be using the Hugs ‘n Kisses EPP iron –ons – if you haven't tried these then my mission on the QAL is to get you totally addicted – you will never do it any other way again….
Our Iron-on English paper piecing shapes are cut from Hugs ‘n Kisses applique paper – which is 50% soluble with a glue on one side. Which means, you iron the precut shape to your fabric, glue over the edges, stitch it up AND LEAVE THE PAPERS IN! so easy….. there are many other positives of this product that make the process so easy and forgiving for all skill levels.
and remember - IT WILL BE FREE! yes totally free – but for that limited time only…
remember join up now by purchasing the EPPQAL Paper pack AUD$60 + postage (GST included.)
More information here..
Once you have signed up (by purchasing the pack) you will be added to a mailing list and as each installment is released will get a link to download the pattern (which will be work for only 2 weeks).
Once the program is finished we will release it as a BOM pattern worldwide as a paid pattern through stores. Some stores are already offering fabric packs to join in now..
There are 26 parts and we will release them randomly – maybe two a week, depending on how involved the block is and when I'm home/or away to do it
Whilst you are working along use the hasthag #EPPQAL to share the fun.
I have used my Fancywork Box and Basically Hugs fabrics for my quilt version –which is what you will see each month. We have prepared fabric packs using the same/or very similar fabrics as I have used.
Hugs fabric pack – (optional) PLEASE NOTE: we have been overwhelmed by orders and have run out of some fabrics, we have ordered more but they may not get here in time so any orders from now will include substitutes - same colours and very similar values but not the originals. If the order arrives I will remove this message and return to original fabrics.
$90 + postage.(please select other for postage- if more is required we will contact you before processing)
Fee is making a version for me using The new Tilda Autumn tree range which she’ll be sharing on Social media as we progress. Many stores have this in stock now. Esmes has kits ready to offer in Tilda and Sew Bright Alpine Quilting will be ready with kits also by our October start.
Or choose your own fabric/colourway – a modern version would be great too!
Other things you would have in your sewing box – but if not they are available from here.
