How exciting is it that I was invited to be a designer in the second series of the Splendid Sampler?
And I even made the cover! so yes, you get my block for free to get one step ahead before the book ships!
The lovely team of Pat and Jane sent me a bunch of fabrics from Moda
and Erin at Aurifil some threads to play with.
embroidery….. (note: I used Presencia Finca Perle#16 threads for the embroidery)
Of course many people may not have tried these methods before (and I always like to teach something new to even one stitcher out there) so I won’t leave you in the cold…
You can join in my FREE series of embroidery lessons and learn every hint and tip I can give you (just click on the pic below)
and if you need help with clamshells? well I have a unique product for English paper piecing – they are EPP Iron-ons – yes, iron on leave in epp templates… They are cut from my Applique paper which is a semi water soluble paper with a fusible on one side. So you just iron them on, and leave them in! You can see the step by step tutorial for clamshells by clicking on the pic below.
If you’d love to have the EPP Iron-ons to make your block you can get them here. (and why would you do it any other way!)
And for even more information and free help on my paper and method subscribe to my Youtube channel where there is a ton of information and technique how to’s for you.
I’ll choose two new followers over the next two days (for those quick off the batt) – and one tagged pic (per week on Fridays) over the next month to send a free pack of EPP Iron on Clamshell papers to..
I do so hope you love my block, learn a new tip or technique and keep on stitching along with the Splendid sampler team….
