PDF for Month 2 of the Autumn Wreath Block of the Month.
The block measures 10 by 12" and is the second in the series of 9 to make the autumn wreath quilt. This block features two Capercaillies along with lots of autumn loveliness!
The quilt measures 40 by 40" and has a patchwork background with raw edge applique animals. I use no glue, paints, or fusible. Just fabric and thread. There will be a central highland cow, and four surrounding larger blocks with a highland and autumnal theme. Connecting the outer four blocks will be a wreath of autumn fauna and flora. The outer 4" of the quilt will have a slightly lighter background. The main section of the background will be warm tans, with highlights of lilacs, greens, warm pinks with touches of reds. There will be some linen with gold metallic thread.
The quilt itself is in my usual style, so it is a patchwork background with raw edge applique sewn with free motion embroidery. You don't need a fancy machine to sew it but your machine needs to be able to do free motion embroidery. The pattern contains basic instructions for the patchwork. I don't go into a lot of detail on patchwork as I am assuming that you know the basics but other than the odd half square triangle, it is all pretty simple. The kits contain the fabrics, freezer paper and stabilizer you will need to complete the top. You will need to purchase your own threads but I do list every thread that I use so you can use the same if you wish to. The fabrics are supplied as a rectangle/square big enough for the shape you need. No laser cutting so you are relying on freezer paper/pencil and scissors to cut the shapes out yourself. I like this step as it is quite therapeutic. I label all the fabrics with little stickers which tell you what they are to be used for so it makes it a little easier to know which bit goes where. I use raw edge techniques and the patterns are using those instructions, but I will put in sufficient fabric that you could also use needle turn techniques, but no instructions will be given.
I am based in the UK and I am happy to ship worldwide. If you are outside the UK then there will be an additional £3 postage charge for either the patterns/kits each month as that is how much extra it costs me.
Hopefully that all makes sense, but please don't hesitate to ask if anything is unclear.

If your item doesn't arrive to you in tip top condition, please let me know ASAP and we can sort something out, either by a part/full refund or returning the item (I would cover the postage costs.) If you don't like the item once it is in your hands (I am sure this could NEVER happen) then contact me and we can arrange for you to return the item for a full refund assuming it is still in tip top condition but I'm afraid I would ask you to cover the return postage costs unless there is an actual fault.
Any questions, please just contact me and I will be happy to help you.
