This is the first of our A Year Of Hearts sewalong blocks! Starting the year off with a celebration and to get this party started!
You can purchase the PDF block pattern here for a nominal fee (and if you aren’t in Australia the price is even less as once the website knows what country you are from it will remove the GST [goods and services tax]. And when you check out with Paypal it will convert the Aussie dollars to your own currency, which pretty much always is so much less too!)
We are going to be doing a few different types of applique (it isn’t the main part of any block, just some embellishments to the piecing) and there will be a video when we try a different type of applique.
This month it is raw edge machine applique and you can watch the video here.
I am doing my blocks totally scrappy in low volumes and pinks. I am using my scraps from Sincerely Yours but we do have a few bundles and some yardage left in the shop if you want to use some similar colours to me!
And we always have low volumes in stock! Hush Hush 2 would be a perfect start for a scrappy low volume background!
We are already seeing some gorgeous blocks showing up in social media with the hashtag #ayearofhearts and over on our Facebook Sewalong and Quilting Group (which you are welcome to join, just please make sure you answer all THREE member questions to gain access).
Hope you are joining in and have fun with A Year Of Hearts.
