Have you been keeping up with our Free Pattern for the Modern Welcome Wall Hanging?
It is a small wall hanging, approximately 50cm x 60cm (20″ x 24″), so very manageable and easy to make for yourself, or for a gift.
PS: We planned the schedule so that it could be finished for Christmas
We are up to month 3, of a 10 month “Block of the Month”.
Watch for the free instruction each month. Judysew4th posts the next step on the blog, on the first Friday of each month.
Month one included a selection of applique designs, or you could use a design of your own choice. As you can see, I am planning to use my welcome quilt in my sewing room.
Each month is a small simple step so, for once, I have been able to keep up with the program!!
I am using a darker background fabric than Judysew4th, and a romantic Moda charm pack called “Dream On”
The pattern has been designed to use all four thread weights in the Cotton Mako’ range. So far, I have used:
- Cotton Mako’ 50 colour 4653 for the applique
- Cotton Mako’ 40 colour 2325 for the piecing
and I plan to use
- Cotton Mako’ 28 colour 2220 for the quilting
- Cotton Mako’ 12 colour 2115 for the stitchery
To see the wall hanging progressing, and get ideas for alternate uses for each block, read Judysew4th’s posts for previous months here:
Month One: Applique
Month Two: Four patches
Month Three: Half square triangles
I can’t wait to see the next block in June.
