Midwinter Mini Sampler Quilt Kit

£54.95

This Midwinter Mini Sampler Quilt is a fun, festive make using Liberty Fabrics. Take pleasure in creating an heirloom piece that will be the perfect addition to your holiday decorations. It would also make a lovely gift for friends and family this Christmas.

Suitable for an advancing beginner sewer, it is constructed using a mixture of techniques that will help to enhance your sewing skills. English Paper Piecing (EPP) is a traditional hand sewing quilting method that is simple and quite addictive! The raw edge appliqué technique may be completed either by hand or with a sewing machine, the choice is up to you. It does require a bit of concentration but is easily mastered and there is no end to the items you can make with this method of appliqué! Patchworking is the ‘classic’ method of quilting and this will be a great introduction to the technique. Decorative stitching adds extra interest and details to the design of the blocks.

As pictured above, for the EPP, patchwork and appliqué shapes on the front we have used a selection of smaller pieces of Liberty Tana Lawn® in a seasonally appropriate selection of colours. Your finished mini quilt can become the centrepiece in a larger quilt or a wall hanging, or add pockets and make it into an advent calendar.
