As mentioned in the previous post, for Christmas gifts to House Group ladies, I give a DIY pack of a block using die cut pieces. This year I used the Accuquilt GO! to cut large hexagons and co-ordinating print triangles. I was fortunate to find some sewing-theme print cotton (from Fabricland, Salisbury) for most of the packs and retained a set for myself. Unlike last year’s gift, this time the pack did NOT sit on the “roundtuit” shelf for 12 months! No sooner cut than I stitched the pieces together whilst preparing the instruction sheet with step-by-step photographs. I quilted “stitch in the ditch” and piped the completed block with narrow Cream satin piping. The reverse has a band of the sewing-theme print in a contrasting colour and an envelope closure. The cover measures approximately 15″ and I made the polyester-filled pad about 16″ to ensure a plump well-filled cushion.
