July's Free Pattern and some more new projects

As those familiar with Sewmotion will know, I send out a free pattern every month to my Newsletter subscribers, many of which are based on my love of the fabric pre-cut, while some are designed to bust the stash, including all those "it might be useful one day" scraps. And this is where July's pattern comes in - the EPP Flower Mug Rug!


I may have mentioned before how curved English paper-piecing has taken over my life, everything from my Purse and Hoop Art kits to my mammoth Curve Motion Medallion BOM - though I think I prefer the smaller projects, and they're also a great way to introduce people to this wonderful technique. 

I've also made up three versions of this Mug Rug kit, all from Liberty of London's Cottage Garden prints, there's the Pastel, the Blue and the Pink kits, all of which include the fabric pieces, wadding, pre-cut paper templates (Yay!) and full instructions, you'll just need a Sewline Glue Pen and thread. Click here for more details on the kits - did I also mention, that if you sign up to the Newsletter, you get 15% these kits until 11th July, so why not sign up now.



Through all this, I'm still in my mad rush towards the Festival of Quilts, how did it become July already! New kits making their debut at the show (though I am hoping to get them uploaded online too) include this EPP Diamond Star Cushion in Makower's Bloom prints, I love those bluey greys! And I've decided to make a longer version of my Christmas Table Runner in Makower's Silent Trees fabrics, a great project for showing off those beautiful feature prints in the collection. Ahh, more kits to cut up and pack!

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