Panier de Printemps Stitch Kit
This stitch kit includes everything you need to make up a beautiful piece of hand-stitched art. Cut out all of the flowers. Use the Wonder Fuse to reinforce your flowers then fussy cut flowers and iron down to the antique quilt block. If there are small stains or weak spots on your block - be sure to use the flowers to cover these up.
Using a sewing needle and the sewing thread to tack down all the flowers to the quilt block. Use the Perle Cotton to embellish and embroider details onto your block - we used the running stitch on the basket and the chain stitch to make the flower stems. Include French knots for more texture. Add your own small scraps and decorative bits to make this piece uniquely yours.
Once your work of art is complete, bind the edges and make a small wall hanging or pillow - or add this panel to a crazy quilt.
