Little Village Quilt
Block of the Month 1 July
13x18cm / 5x7"
These 3 applique embroidery files of the "Little Village Quilt BOM Collection" are part 1 of a series of 12 in total.
BOM means „Block of the Month“. Every month we offer you another 3 suiting applique embroidery motifs. Each single applique of the 3 matches the 13x18 hoop size.
Place the 3 motifs on a square piece of fabric. Follow the instruction and add a double sashing strip on all four sides of the block so you will get a square block of 40x40cm.
From these 12 blocks you can after a year complete a beautiful quilt with coordinated seasonally different embroidery designs.
The sashing strips of the final 12 blocks will be sewed on with the sewing machine. Only the appliques will be embroidered.
Our sewing instructions about the completion of the blocks explains step by step with many pictures how to sew each single block. Basic knowledge of sewing and how to use a ruler and a rotary cutter are needed. The instruction of course has all info about material required.
When exactly following the instruction your quilt will be 1.30x1.70m/ 50"x67". Of course you can influence this by varying the width of the sashing stripes or by adding additional stripes.
This is what you need:
- Embroidery Thread
- (Appliqué) scissors
- Cotton fabric for the inner blocks (single color)
- Several different cotton fabrics for the appliqué pieces
- Fabrics for sashing, border and backing
- Optional, but recommended: cutting mat, rotary cutter and cutting ruler
