“CLEMENTINE was designed to showcase my love of flowers, vases and birds. I mainly use the needle-turn method for all my applique, but I sometimes now use prepared edge because my eyesight is not always good (at night), and I have arthritis in some of my fingers. I have come to enjoy both methods of preparing my applique shapes. A short video will be included in Part 3 demonstrating my method of prepared edge using Polyfuse applique paper. I chose Art Gallery fabrics for my quilt and have been delighted at the rich colour and design in so many of their fabrics which helped to make my quilt so colourful. There were a lot of opportunities for fussy cutting using their beautiful fabrics. I grew up in Africa and also lived for a short time in India. I was influenced by the riot of colour that women used in everyday clothing, and I am now inspired to make my quilts as colourful as the clothing that I remember seeing.”
You'll receive 6 installments of fabric in 2022. We hope to ship the first in January, dependent on fabric arriving, and then every other month.
You'll need the magazine for the pattern. Order a subscription to all 6 issues here if you don't already receive it.
Then, sign up for the fabric kits here. The fabric will be limited in availability.
As always, the designer sets the fabric requirements and determines how the fabric installments are shipped. Some months you will receive more fabric than others but the monthly charge is averaged over the 6 installments so you always pay the same amount.
In addition to the fabrics required, we'll be slipping in some surprises along the way to help you make your quilt.
Each of the 6 installments is $39.95 plus shipping. As always, if you're currently receiving monthly shipments from us, you can add this in to save on shipping. Just email us with your order so we have a written record.
Also, it's currently our plan to charge for Installment 1 when we ship. Those of you that joined us last year may recall we had to charge Installment 1 early & then ship #1 and #2 together. We'll email you if that develops with this edition, but we're hopeful we can avoid that. It all comes down to those lingering, pesky supply chain issues.
