Spring Bouquet by Laundry Basket Quilts, Edyta Sitar using Over the Rainbow batiks and Silhouettes (laser cut fusible shapes for applique) starts soon. The batiks are made by Moda Fabrics.
The finished size 72″ x 72″. That would a great size on a queen sized bed – the mattress is 60″ across.
We will have all the batiks on bolts. The Silhouettes will be available in other packages like leaves, flowers, stems, etc. We will offer all of those too. Also charm packs, jelly rolls, and fat quarter packs will round out the selection.
This beautiful Block of the Month at first glance looks to be way beyond me … BUT the appliques are already cut out and backed with fusible web! I’ve always wanted a beautiful floral applique quilt. This might be IT!
The Silhouettes are placed on the background block and fused in place. A detailed pattern shows the locations of each petal and leaf.
Then you stitch them in place using the fantastic thread assortments by Aurifil. The small assortment is ten colors of 50 wt Aurifil on 220 yard spools. The large assortment is twelve colors of 50 wt Aurifil thread on 1422 yard spools. Both assortments save money over individual spools and come with a handy storage box.
The first month’s cost is $95.75 and includes the pattern, Over the Rainbow charm pack and all the background fabric.
Months 2 through 11 cost $35.50 and include the silhouettes, borders, and binding.
Now taking pre-orders. We will begin shipping late September, 2012. Our original shipping date was August but the bolts have been delayed.
