Pre-Cut Party Time and a New Quilt Kit

It's the first of June, which can only mean one thing, it's Pre-Cut Party time! For those new to my blog, I send out a monthly email to my Newsletter subscribers giving away a free pattern based on my love of fabric pre-cuts. These patterns range from full size quilts and table runners to cushions and small gift items such as make-up pouches. Together with the free downloadable pattern, there are often discount codes for the associated fabrics, or for the whole kit if available.



Having recently taken delivery of Dashwood Studios' gorgeous Birdsong collection, I couldn't resist using them to make these Octagon Star Table Mats for June's free pattern. I love how the larger prints, the birds and the trees, are perfect for that side panel for your cutlery. 

To grab your free pattern, plus access to previous free PDFs, subscribe here.



Talking of Dashwood, I've also just uploaded these gorgeous fat quarter bundles, there are eight from the range, and are priced at £24.00.

It's been a mad couple of weeks with two quilt shows, and then thankfully a few days away. Quilts UK at Malvern was a great show, I even managed to snap a few pics of some of the gorgeous quilts on display, but I'll leave those for a later post when I've got my head together. 



My Red Brick Tile quilt kit, as seen at Malvern, is now available in the Sewmotion shop. This beauty is approx. 77" x 79" and would look lovely draped over a double bed, or laying on top of a king. The kit includes all the fabrics you need to complete the top, including ten designs from this beautiful Coonawarra Red collection from Red Rooster. You also get the binding, thread and full colour instructions. What's more, if you subscribe to my Newsletter, you can get 20% off this whole kit (at £68.00, normally £85.00)
