New Pre-Cut Party pattern and kit

It's May already!! Where is this year going?? This is going to be a very busy month for me, thankfully ending with a few days away in the sun with some great friends. Before then I have two major shows and a magazine deadline which seemed so far away when I said yes...

Anyway, a new month means a new Pre-Cut Party pattern, for those new to Sewmotion, every month I send out a free pattern inspired by fabric pre-cuts to my Newsletter subscribers. This is often accompanied by a pre-cut kit, which my subscribers can also get at a discount. This month I've gone a little 'improv', and by little, I do mean tiny - seems I'm not quite ready to let it all go just yet!

This funky wall hanging to me looks like a modern piece of art, and made in these bright rainbow colours with that sharp white, it takes me back to my art degree years, though for the life of me I can't remember the artist I'm thinking of... collage? bright colours? Kandinsky or Mondrian maybe? These blocks are made with 2.5" strips and a clever technique using freezer paper to trim down each square. This is where the 'slightly improv' bit comes in as you can't see what you're cutting.

For this free pattern, with full access to previous months' patterns, plus my latest news, events and special offers, subscribe to the Newsletter.

I have also made this wall hanging into a kit containing all the fabric you need to complete the top, including binding, plus thread, freezer paper and full instructions. Priced at £25.00 - 20% off if you subscribe to the Newsletter, click here for more. If I get the time, I want to make up a black, grey and yellow version of this for the shows, she says hopefully. 

Talking of shows, this time next week will be the first day of  the Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts show at the convention centre in the centre of Harrogate, North Yorkshire. If you're in the area, why not treat yourself to a day of inspiration, lovely people and craft therapy? I hope to see you there.

Can't make it to the show? Get your inspiration fix by visiting these great quilting links parties - Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers and Needle & Thread Thursday.
