Block of the Day 2016 - That Town and Country Quilt
New for 2016!
How delicious would it be to make a block a day for 2016! so now you can! This exciting new program consists of 365 x 4" blocks, so that is one for each day, plus the borders! We will start early 2016 and continue on throughout the year. The quilt ends up being approx. 84" square. Each block is unique and they depict the sort of things that you might see in the town and country, starting in the centre, with the city and a night sky, working out in rounds (the sky lightens as we go) and including things like some light industry, suburbs, shops, gardens, parks etc and then into farms, right out to the countryside in the borders.
The method I have used is raw-edge, fusible, free-motion stitched applique, with a small amount of simple hand embroidered embellishment. As the blocks are only finished at 4" they are quite achievable.
When you purchase this product you will become part of the Town and Country community and will receive the patterns for the blocks weekly, in lots of 7 blocks, throughout the year.
There will also be video tutorials and a Town & Country Quilt Community group on Facebook where you can meet and chat about That Town and Country if you choose to.
There is a video with some information here.
This quilt was made using delicious Hoffman Bali Batik fabrics and Aurifil threads.
