You are invited to join our 2020 Embroidery Block of the month Quilt club! This year we are doing this stunning quilt from HoopSisters called “Sisterhood”!
SisterHood wall hanging is just 8 blocks across, and 8 down for a total of 64 blocks. Easy to stitch blanket stitch applique with beautiful quilting. To make SisterHood in quilt size, you will turn the wall hanging portion “On Point”, and add corners, which we are calling the Border. This makes the quilt much larger and is the one we have pictured and priced here. These can be made on any embroidery machine that can do from a 5″ square, to a 9″ square!
SisterHood requires just two fabrics, fabric 1 is your background color, fabric 2 is the applique and some piecing as well. We recommend using a tightly woven fabric, such as a batik for fabric 2. There are two reasons for this, one – batiks tend to be the same color on each side, two – batiks are a higher thread count. Since the applique is blanket stitch, you will see a bit of the raw edge, so having a fabric that is the same color on both sides, as well as a higher thread count will make your applique look fantastic!
This is a very easy quilt to make and the blocks stitch out quickly and are completely quilted when finished!
This is a 5 month program, and you can start any time during the year with the first class being held on November 6th at 10:00 AM. Each month, we will show you the steps to complete the blocks that you are making that month, and some tips and tricks we have found along the way. At the second and following meetings, if you bring along the completed blocks from the prior month, you will receive a small prize! After the instructional part of the meeting is over, you are free to take your CD or memory stick with the designs and head home to start stitching, or you can set up your own machine in our classroom and spend the rest of the day sewing with the rest who are staying! What a fun way to increase the number of friends in your sisterhood!
After you checkout and pay, there will be a file that you can download that contains all the files needed to get ready for the first class. As always, feel free to call us with any questions and we’ll help you figure them out!
You can join at any time as you will start where we are today, and then move forward from there. It will take five months.
