Piece by Piece Fabrics is one of the 32 participating shops worldwide in Australian designer Jen Kingwell’s exclusive new Template of the Month Program. This lovely scrappy sampler quilt is rich in pattern and texture and contains 12 original blocks.
The fabrics in our Delilah kits are curated from modern collections reflecting the Piece by Piece style. They include designers such as Zen Chic, Amy Ellis, Kaffe Fassett, Carolyn Friedlander, Amy Butler, Tula Pink, Basic Grey, Kathy Doughty, Valorie Wells, Kate Spain, Anna Maria Horner, Tina Givens, Cotton + Steel, Jen Kingwell of course, and many more too numerous to list.
Each month for 12 months, participants will receive a custom set of acrylic templates that can be used for rotary cutting or tracing. There are 50 different templates altogether. Also included will be an assortment of 16 – 24 fat sixteenths and fat eighths used in our store quilt. This means each sewist will receive hundreds of fabrics! These kits can replicate our version or additional fabrics can be inserted to make it unique.
Tracy will also offer a free demo of how to use the templates and get started on your Delilah quilt, Saturday, April 29 from 10-11.
This quilt is suitable for machine or hand sewing or a combination of the two techniques. By using templates, complex designs are possible that would be unachievable with strip piecing. The acrylic templates are drilled at the pivot points for marking the 1/4" seam allowances for hand construction. These landmarks have been engineered to aid in the assembly of accurate machine pieced blocks as well. Jen Kingwell’s distinctive layout of the blocks also makes this a truly special quilt.
Registrants commit to a full year’s participation and credit cards will be charged monthly. The monthly fee for fabric and templates and tips gleaned from our construction is $37.99. Shipping will be available for an additional charge. If you choose to pay for the entire program at month 1, a 5% discount will be given.
Call or drop into the store to register. A completed quilt is on display. Registration will remain open until all spots are filled. The Program will begin April 15, 2017 and run through March 15, 2018. Please join us in making your own delightful Delilah!
