Welcome

Even in the middle of winter, you can still find little moments of wonder. It might be the bright winter sunshine, shimmering snow, the shy doe in the woods, or perhaps the little snow globe which shimmers when shaken, that comes out this time each year.


Hope this season is full of lovely little wonders that bring joy, and peace, and contentment x x




Sampler Block Eleven measures 10 1/2” square before joining to other blocks. Includes fusible machine applique, and heirloom stitching make a flurry of snowflakes.


Please read through all the instructions, before starting on your block x



Materials:

11” square - Off-white or Low volume fabric (e.g. Moda Bella Solids 9900 200)

6” x 6” 15cm x 15cm) plain brown (e.g. Moda Bella Solids Taupe - 9900 310)

Fat Sixteenth Ivory buds (Caroline 18653 11)

Fat Sixteenth Snow flurry - Winterberry No. 13146 12 - Snow flurry (mint)

Small pieces of green material for trees (Caroline 18653 14 & Caroline 18654 15)

8” x 12” (20cm x 30cm) Paper backed fusible webbing (Bondaweb or similar)


Optional: 5 inches of 1” wide white glittery voile ribbon.

Applique glue. Stabiliser.


Thread: Gutermann Sew-all thread in Dark grey (col. 701) and taupe (col. 854). Mettler Silk Finish cotton Green col. 1147 (for applique). Gutermann Sulky Metallic thread 7021 (Prism white) and Mettler metallic Silver (for the snowflakes)


Equipment: Sewing machine; Iron, ironing board and pressing cloth.


Notions: Clover water erasable pen (or similar), Small sharp scissors, small fine quilting needle, safety pins or basting spray.


If you plan to Quilt As You Go*, you’ll need an 11” square of wadding, and depending on which QAYG method you use, an 11” square of backing fabric. (*For more information on the QAYG method, please read through Quilt Construction notes)




So let’s begin:


Print out the Deer in the Snow templates [2 page PDF] or


Print out the full Deer in the Snow tutorial and templates [9 page PDF]


Shapes have already been reversed, ready for tracing onto fusible webbing.


Optional: If using the Quilt as You Go 2 Layer quilt sandwich method, you may want to layer the wadding at this point, and work the next steps using a 2 layer sandwich of top layer and wadding.



Trace the upper and lower halves of the background, deer and trees, with Bondaweb paper side up.

Cut out, leaving approx. ¼” margin around each of the traced shapes.



Pair up the bondaweb pieces with fabrics, as follows:


1. Upper background on the Snow Flurry fabric

2. Lower background on the Ivory print.

3. Deer on the Taupe Solid.

4. Trees on the green print.


• Place fusible side down on wrong side of fabric (with smooth paper side up). Press for a few seconds, using a medium heat, no steam.





• Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut out upper and lower circle, deer, and trees. Peel away the paper backing by making a fold near one edge, the paper backing should begin to separate.




Once the fusible pieces are cut….





• Place the upper circle first, fusible side down. Then the lower circle so it overlaps slightly. Forming a circle, centred in the middle of the block.


• Press for a few seconds, using a medium heat, no steam.




So let’s stitch….


• For the block shown in the photos, I used a walking foot, though a basic presser foot works equally well. Set stitch length to 2mm.


• Using metallic white thread stitch just inside the circle, then the snowy horizon.


• Sew a few contours on the snowy ground.





• Continue slowly building up the picture, adding the trees. Next place the deer just inside the circle,

with back legs just outside (as if they are stepping into the winter scene).


• Once you are happy with the placement of deer and trees. Press for a second, to bond to the background, taking care not to press for too long as metallic polyester thread does melt.


To machine applique the deer


If you prefer you can also use an open toe foot (feed dogs down), or darning foot, to outline the deer or stick with the basic presser foot, whichever you feel most comfortable with.






• To outline the deer, use taupe or dark grey thread. Stitch just inside the edge of the deer shape

(approx. 1/8”). Proceed slowly where you need to be precise - for the few stitches around the

head I took my foot of the pedal, and used just the hand control.


• To pivot at tight curves, check your needle is in the down position before lifting the foot to pivot.





Machine sew tree trunks, on zig-zag stitch setting (width 3, length 0.2) using taupe thread.

The eye of the deer is hand sewn using satin stitch and black thread.


Your snowy scene is nearly complete! Just one more thing to add…


A flurry of snowflakes….


• Position the hexagon template, on the background, mark a dot at each of the 6 corners.

Using a water erasable pen and ruler, draw a snowflake pattern centred on the hexagon, (3 lines connecting opposite corners of the hexagon) and a “v” on each of the 6 arms.


• Repeat till you have 6 or 7 snowflakes marked, making sure they fit inside the blocks 10” design window.



Optional - To give an iridescent effect to the snowflakes


• Trace 3 or 4 hexagons onto glittery voile ribbon.


• Cut out the voile hexagons, and use a dab of applique glue in the centre and corners to

secure the hexie to the block.


Using a water erasable pen and ruler, draw a snowflake pattern centred on the hexagon.



Stitch the snowflakes


• Machine or hand-sew using metallic thread. Stitching the 3 lines in turn. If you have embroidery stitches on your machine, you may want to try one of the fancier hemstitch or heirloom stitches. Make sure to practice first on a scrap, to find the stitch and settings that works best.


• The stitch used to sew snowflakes on the block pictured is one of a number of hemstitches (also known as heirloom stitch) – I chose no 21 on my Janome machine (please see pic 1 below) set the width to 2.5 and Length 2. (Ethel – my hardworking little Janome machine is over 20 years old. Nowadays many machines have dozens of decorative stitches, so it’s worth trying out the different stitches available).


• Before beginning each new line check the machine needle is centred. Stitch along the guidelines see pics 2-4. To complete the snowflake hand sew “v” onto each arm (pic 5.)




Preparing to quilt


Remove markings with a little water, and press using a pressing cloth, to avoid melting metallic threads.


If using the Quilt As You Go (QAYG) method:


• Layer your block, using an 11” square of cotton wadding, and an 11” square of backing fabric,

if following the 3 layer sandwich method. (For more information on QAYG, please see Quilt

Construction notes.)


• Secure layers using safety pins, or preferred method of basting.


• If using Quilt As You Go method 2, leave a small margin un-quilted inside the 10” design window, to make it easier to peel back the layers when joining blocks.


Quilt around the deer and beginning from the leg of the deer, quilt all the way round the circle.

Finally in preparation for joining Sampler block to Irish Chain blocks, trim a sliver of each

side of the Sampler square, till it measures 10.5” square, to match the other blocks.


Congratulations Block 11 - "Deer in the snow" is now complete !



We’d love to see the Sampler blocks you make, so please do post them on Instagram using the

hashtag – # SweetestThingsSampler.


Have a happy and peaceful season, and happy sewing

Honeybee Cloths

In winter, when trees have shed their leaves, there’s something kind of wonderful in the big bunches of mistletoe, hugging the tree branches. Mistletoe is fairly common in this corner of the U.K. It’s rich green leaves and bright little berries, welcome colour this time of year. So let’s put on our warm woolly mittens, and go find some mistletoe…



Feel free to use your preferred method of applique - the block pictured, is made using the starch/ freezer paper method of applique, perfect for hand sewing on winter evenings. It would also be equally lovely using a fusible applique method, if you need a faster finish.


Fussy cut the mitten or stitch an embroidered snowflake or two. A scattering of buttons for mistletoe berries, ties the quilt sandwich layers together.


Sampler Block Ten measures 10 1/2” square before joining to other blocks.




To make block 10 you'll need:


11” square Off-white or Low volume fabric (Moda Bella Solids 9900 200)

5” square – blue fabric for the mitten (18652-12 Caroline)

Small pieces of green fabrics (Caroline no. 18653-14,

Caroline no. 18652-14, Caroline no. 18654-15)

10” (25cm) Gingham ribbon (East of India gingham warm grey)

12 small white shirt buttons (12mm)


Green and Grey thread for applique

(Mettler Col.1147 and Gutermann Col.700)


Embroidery thread – DMC Mouline Etoile (glittery white)


White cotton thread wt. 30 for sewing on buttons and hand-tied quilt

(Gutermann Sulky cotton Col. 1001 white)


Equipment: Sewing machine; Iron and ironing board; rotary cutter, mat and ruler.



Notions: Clover water erasable pen, Small sharp scissors, Applique pins, Embroidery needle.

For freezer paper & starch applique method: spray starch, freezer paper, small fine brush.

Alternatively, for fusible applique method: Bondaweb


Optional: Stabiliser or lightweight interfacing


If you plan to Quilt As You Go*, you’ll need an 11” square of wadding, and Quilting thread e.g. Gutermann Sulky Cotton (30 weight). Depending on which QAYG method you’ll also need an 11” square of backing fabric.


*For more information on the QAYG method, please see Quilt Construction notes




So let's begin....


Print out the Mistletoe and mittens template [2 page PDF] or


Print the full tutorial below including template [10 page PDF]


Fold the 11” background off-white square in half, then quarters, creasing lightly to mark the centre.




Prepare the background


Use the template to draw guidelines on the background fabric to form the shape of the wreath.


• Cut out the larger outer half circle template. Match centre of half circle to the centre of the fabric square. Using a water erasable pen (or similar erasable marker), draw round the outer half circle. Flip over to draw the other half of the large circle.


• Cut out the smaller circle, and matching centres, draw round.


The circles form a donut shape, into which the mittens and mistletoe design fits.



Prepare the mistletoe and mittens


Trace the mittens and 4 leaves onto the freezer paper (the leaf templates can be re-used to make all the leaves).


Cut out the freezer paper and place glossy side down on wrong side of fabric.


Press for a second or two, using a hot iron till the Freezer paper sticks to the fabric.


• Cut out, leaving 1/8” to ¼” margin right the way round the template, rounding the tips of the pointy bits (see pic. a below)


• Using a small brush apply a little starch to the ¼” margin around the template. Turn the edges over the freezer paper template and press using an iron (pic. b)


• Remove the paper template (c), and re-use to make the next leaf.


You'll need approximately 21 leaves in total, including 5 or 6 of each leaf type.





Prepare the mittens for either fusible machine applique (Bondaweb) or Starch method as above.


You might want to fussy cut the mittens, or leave them plain, and embroider a snowflake or two later on.


If using starch method, snip the “V” near the thumb to enable easy shaping.




Positioning mistletoe and mittens


• Place the mittens inside the inner circle, overlapping them slightly. Pin in place using small applique pins.


• Position the mistletoe leaves, placing them between the inner and outer circle guidelines. (Try a few different placements, until you find the one which is right for you - the photo below, was an option, before I ran with the placement shown in the completed block).


• Space the leaves evenly, placing some in pairs, drooping downwards.


• Leave a space at the top for the ribbon



Pin in place using small applique pins, (or a dab of applique glue).


Once everything is pinned, you're ready to sew in place.


• Green thread is used to sew the mistletoe leaves, using small slip stitches



• Using grey thread around the edge of the mittens, blanket stitch (Machine setting Width 2 Length 2.5)



Snowflake on mitten (optional)


Trace the snowflake onto freezer paper, marking each of the dots.


Make pin pricks in the dots, large enough for an erasable pen.


Position the freezer paper template in the centre of the mitten, press to hold in place.


Use an erasable pen, to mark the dots on the mittens.




Embroidering snowflakes


The snowflakes on the block were stitched using a really lovely glittery silvery white embroidery thread, it’s very pretty in real life, though doesn’t photograph well. Alternatively, use a more contrasting thread if you'd like you the snowflake to be more prominent.


Using 2 strands of embroidery thread, stitch the snowflake, using the following stitches:



Tie the gingham ribbon, into a bow. Sew in place at the top of the wreath.





A scattering of mistletoe berries….


Place the buttons evenly around the mistletoe wreath, towards the centre of the mistletoe sprigs, and not too near the outer edge of the wreath.


If using the Quilt As You Go* (QAYG) method, you may want to layer your quilt sandwich now, before sewing on the little white button mistletoe berries, which as well as being part of the wreath, also tie the quilt layers together.





Preparing to Quilt As You Go


Layer your block, using an 11” square of cotton wadding. If doing the 3 layer sandwich method, you’ll also need an 11” square of backing fabric, and remember to leave a small margin un-quilted inside the 10” design window, to make it easier to peel back the layers when joining blocks together.


First, quilt around the outer edge of the mitten, either by hand using small running stiches, or machine.



To hand-tie the remainder of the block, you’ll need an embroidery needle, and white cotton thread.


• Working from the back of the block, sew through all layers, leaving a tail about 2” long at the back.


• Pull thread through the buttonholes, returning to the back of the quilt sandwich. Repeat to secure the button on the front.


• Tie using a double knot at the back of the block.


• Repeat, until all the mistletoe berry buttons are sewn in place.



Congratulations! Block 10 – “Mistletoe and mittens” is complete!


In preparation for joining Sampler block to Irish Chain blocks, trim a sliver of each side of the Sampler square, till it measures 10.5” square, to match the other blocks.


We’d love to see the beautiful Sampler blocks you make, so please do post them on Instagram using the hashtag – #SweetestThingsSampler.


Till next time, from our little hive to yours,

Assembly


Apart from the bunting triangle, trace all the templates, from both sheets onto Bondaweb (templates have been reversed already for you) using a pencil. Cut them out roughly, and fuse to the chosen fabrics, and cut out accurately.


Take your 11” Ivory fabric, and begin by fusing all the applique pieces in place. When you add the icing to the cupcake wrapper, overlap it slightly when fusing to the main block.




Using the erasable marker pen, draw on the cupcake wrapper details.



Use the brown thread to sew over the cupcake wrapper markings.


Add detail to the icing using the same method, use a metallic pink thread to sew over the icing marks and pink hearts.

Using a cream thread, sew around the outline of the icing (1/8” from raw edge), continue with cream thread to sew around the cup.





Cut a 5” piece from the ribbon, and pin in place in the cupcake wrapper, sew 1/8” all the way around, you could add a little bit of anti-fray glue to the ends of the ribbon at this point.


Create a small bow, and sew a few stitches in the centre to hold in place. Add to the centre of the piece of ribbon on the cupcake wrapper, and sew a few stitches in the centre to hold, this can be done by hand if you find it easier.


Sew a few small stitches on each of the four pieces of the bow to hold in place on your block.


Your block is now complete.


If you want to go ahead with the QAYG method….


Layer your block, using an 11” square of cotton wadding, and an 11” square of backing fabric, if following the 3 layer sandwich method 2.


• For the 3 layer sandwich, also leave a small margin un-quilted inside the 10” design window, to make it easier to peel back the layers when joining blocks.

* (For information on QAYG methods, please see Quilt Construction notes.)


Cut out the triangle and draw around it, using your fabric marker to give the appearance of bunting, in the top right-hand corner, and underneath the cup and saucer – see photo below for placement. With the metallic pink thread, quilt the bunting. Remove all markings.


In preparation for joining Sampler block to Irish Chain blocks, trim a sliver of each side of the Sampler square, till it measures 10.5” square, to match the other blocks.

Thank you so much for popping by our Quiltalong, it's lovely to have you along. I can't believe it's June, and the fifth block, nearly half way through our Sampler adventure. I'm utterly thrilled by this month's block, which is designed and made by Michelle from Creativeblonde - it's so gorgeous, hope you love it too.


Michelle's block - "Basket of Strawberry Sweetness", includes a beautiful basket woven from Brenda Riddles' "Caroline" ticking fabric, scrumptious strawberries, and the sweetest little quilted butterflies.


From our little hive to yours, Happy sewing x X




Block 5 - Basket of Strawberry Sweetness


Tutorial by Michelle Roberts from Creativeblonde


Designed for the ‘sweetest things sampler’


- 10 ½” Finished appliqued block, before joining to other blocks.


- Downloadable PDF tutorial and templates.



Materials

11” square Ivory fabric

11” square for the backing (if doing QAYG)

12” piece of brown fabric - Caroline Ticking

Scraps of Red, Green and Floral

11” square of wadding (if doing QAYG)

10” square of H250 Vilene interfacing

Gutermann threads colours; 118 & 4048


Cutting – from the templates

3 large strawberries

7 small strawberries

1 flower

1 large green top

3 small green tops

1 large leaf

2 medium leaves

1 small leaf

1 basket handle


Haberdashery items

Template sheet - download here

1 small wooden button

Erasable marker pen

Basic sewing supplies; Temporary basting glue; Iron; 505 basting spray or pins; Quilting ruler, rotary cutter/scissors, cutting mat.


Assembly

Draw out the templates shapes on to the paper side of the interfacing, using a pencil. (templates have been reversed already for you) Cut them out roughly, and fuse (without steam) to the chosen fabrics, cut out accurately.


To create the woven effect basket, cut the brown fabric into strips

Three 1 ½” x 6 ½” and Three 1 ½” x 10” strips.


Fold and press over ¼” along one long edge, and sew 1/8” to hold in place, repeat for the other side, and for the remaing 5 strips.

Weave the strips and pin to hold together, see photo for placement.

Sew from right to left, to hold the strips in place, using gutermann colour 4048.



Trim your block to measure 8 ½” along the top of the basket, and 6” along the base -


KEEP TRIMMED PIECES


Use the trimmed pieces to make up the left-hand corner of the basket, and stitch in place.



Take your basket and pin to the main block. Pin the handle in place, tucking the curve under the edge of the basket, needle turn ¼” along the three edges of the basket, and sew in place. Leave the top for now. Hand sew the wooden button in place.



Arrange the strawberries and leaves in the basket, tucking them into the basket slightly. I made the centre look fuller, then the outer edges. Place one large strawberry with green top along with the flower on the left side of the outer basket.


Once you’re happy with the arrangement, use temporary basting glue to hold, while you sew in place. Sew around the visible shapes and add details, including the handle, using free motion embroidery or handstitching.


Needle turn the top ¼” of your basket, and sew in place


Your block is now complete.


If you want to go ahead with the QAYG* method, place wadding on the reverse of your block. For the 3 layer QAYG method, spray baste the 11” backing fabric and place on top of wadding, or use pins to hold the backing in place.


(For more information on Quilt As You Go - QAYG, please refer to the Quilt Construction Notes)


Use your erasable marker and draw a 10” centralised square onto your Ivory fabric, draw around the butterfly template, and using free motion quilting, sew over these markings.




Remove all markings.
