Faience Bleu Quilt Kit and Workshop / Pre-Order Ships March 2023
This charming quilt was designed by Lorraine Lovell from Hetties Patch in Adelaide, Australia. Inspired by the antique French plates and platters we find at the brocantes in France, Lorraine designed a quilt using our new collection, Bleu de France. This stunning quilt uses both broderie perse and traditional appliqué techniques and encourages you to have fun designing blocks that are brimming with birds and flowers.
Our kit includes everything you need to make this quilt:
Bleu de France Fat Quarter Tower (32 pieces of 17"x22" fabric) for Quilt Blocks and Backing
2 Yards Ciel Blue Fabric for Quilt Base Blocks
2 Yards Smoke Fabric for Quilt Base Blocks
1/2 Yard Pearl Fabric for Backgrounds (because the fat quarter in the pack may not be enough)
1/2 Yard Blue Fabric for Binding
50 Weight Thread for Appliqué
Valdani Threads for Hand-Quilting
Water Soluble Glue Pen
Additional Materials Needed:
Small Sharp Scissors
Iron and Pressing Pad
Finished Size of Quilt: 64" x 60"
All kits include a Zoom Workshop with Lorraine and Kaari about the quilt's inspiration, construction, and finishing. This 3-hour informal chat will also discuss techniques for fussy cutting, broderie perse, and appliqué. Grab a cup of tea and join us for a fun discussion on quilts, quilt making and the meaning of comfort.
ZOOM CHAT SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 8th FROM 10am-1pm PST
Our new collection, Bleu de France highlights all of the beautiful French blues. Bleu de France (French Blue) is a color traditionally used to represent France. Blue has been used in the heraldry of the French monarchy since at least the 12th century, with the golden fleurs-de-lis of the kings always set on a blue background. This classic collection will blend well with all of our Favorite Solid colors to make up a collection of fresh, modern quilts.
All items placed with a PRE-ORDER will be shipped together once fabric arrives from Moda. Please order items separately if you prefer not to wait till pre-order items come in.
