It's Pre-Cut Party Time!


At the beginning of each month, we hold a Pre-Cut Party and invite all our Newsletter subscribers to come along and celebrate these versatile fabric sets. Together with a free pre-cut pattern, there are great shop discounts, plus the latest product and events news, all straight to your inbox. You can subscribe here for free to receive our latest issue. 


This month’s free pattern, Blueberry Kiss, focuses on the 5” charm square to create this gorgeous small lap quilt or wall hanging. I have used my Blueberry Park charm pack for this quilt, which actually contains 48 squares, though I have included layout ideas for the more traditional 42pc packs.



Once pieced, I then had some fun with straight-line quilting using my walking foot – no clever free-motion stuff here! Using Aurifil thread is always a dream, and their Silver 50wt seems to blend into anything. I started with some stitch-in-the-ditch around each of the ‘kisses’, then echo-quilted ¼” inside each kiss, ending with a double square at each centre. I then noticed the diamond shapes created in the sashing and accentuated those with another diamond, finishing off with some straight lines down and across each of the sashing strips and borders.

This quilt comes together really quickly, and would make a beautiful Christmas gift for a loved one, or for yourself!! To get this free pattern, plus 20% off the Charm Packs in the Sewmotion shop, just subscribe to our Newsletter
