Ready for ROW by ROW! Begins Tuesday June 21, ends Sept.6
Our goal this year was to create a simple row that could be sewed without excessive applique! The kit is 3 strips of fabric to sew, then cut out a few shapes, fuse to steam-a-seam-2, hang the ric rac clotheslines and pin on a small mini quilt. A pattern to sew a paper-pieced mini quilt is included in the kit, however you can choose to hang a quilt of your choice; perhaps a printed piece of fabric that looks quilty.
Everything is included in the kit: pre-cut strips of fabric, add on pieces, fusible web, ric rac, mini clothespins and colored photo.
Kit is 12.75
If you choose to create from your stash, a strip of printed beach huts fabric is available for 3.00
You can also choose to purchase a "mini kit" which includes the fabric strip and colored pattern = 4.50
