Many customers have requested an English Paper Piecing Block of the Month…with a little research we discovered the popularity of Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses.
The kits will include 1 yard total of fabric (it may be a half yard and 2 FQ), Eppliflex English Paper Piecing Templates, and Mettler 60 weight silk finish thread.
The complete directions for using these heat resistant plastic templates are on YouTube. The templates are extraordinary to use…patented design that bend when you need them to and can be used again and again. Choose stitching, glue basting or starch basting to attach the fabric. The templates can be throw in a lingerie bag to be washed; and the Sharpie marker lines used to fussy cut can be removed with rubbing alcohol.
There will be a limited number of kits available each month. Cost for the kit will be $32.50 + shipping. This month’s kit contains the 3 fabrics shown in the sample and 4 or 5 blocks can easily be fussy cut from them. The blocks are approximately 10 inches square.
