It's Pre-Cut Party time!

January always seems like such a long month, and this year was no exception. After a wobbly start with the dreaded lurgy, I still seem to have accomplished quite a lot - my Curve Motion Medallion BOM is in full swing - don't forget, this block-of-the-month EPP quilt is available to join at anytime, so why not sign-up for 16 months of slow, meditative hand-sewing.

Month One of the CMM BOM features these two centre rings
I've also been lucky enough to have two projects featured in Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine, which always makes me smile. 

Rainbow Waves - Love Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 57
I've finally uploaded my previous Pre-Cut Party patterns onto Payhip which are now available for sale here, and I've another hundred or so designs running around my head for the year ahead! Many of these new designs are based on the curve EPP technique that I'm now totally in love with, and which features in this month's free Pre-Cut Party pattern - for those new to Sewmotion, I design a free pattern based on my love of quilting pre-cuts for my Newsletter subscribers every month. 

Subscribe to the Sewmotion Newsletter for this free EPP Flower Hoop Art pattern
This pretty EPP Flower Hoop Art project lends itself so well to fussy-cutting - a technique where you cut identical motifs from your fabric which then create a secondary design when the shapes are sewn together. To accompany this month's free pattern, I have written a tutorial here on how to use template plastic for fussy-cutting your fabric. So if you would like this free pattern and more throughout the year, sign up to the Newsletter here.

January is also a long month as it's my birthday on 2nd February, and yet again, I'm being whisked away by my wonderful Justin to who knows where - I will let you know next week :)

Linking up with Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers & Needle & Thread Thursday


  1. Congratulations on having TWO projects featured. That is definitely worth singing (dancing) about. Rainbow waves is gorgeous but the sweet springy flower hoop with embroidery is so sweet.

  2. Congrats on your features, and Happy Birthday!
