Join us as we explore the wonderful world of British quilting heritage through our exclusive series of patterns inspired by The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection. Each pattern introduces a different skill or technique as a way to develop and broaden your quilting knowledge, whilst offering a chance to challenge yourself — without biting off more than you can chew.We invited Appliqué lover and expert, Jo Avery to take a piece from our Museum Collection that inspired her and to create a new pattern so that we can all enjoy a little bit of the heritage The Collection has to offer in our homes.
Jo designed this beautiful Basket of Blooms appliqué cushion based on the Naive Appliqué Top in the Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection.
“I love the idea of everyone stitching these while we sit at home waiting for this to pass, I know it will help everyone.”
The completed cushion measure 16″ square. The pattern is £8 and can be purchased online at QShop. This pattern is a digital download and requires access to a printer. You will receive the file link in your order confirmation email.
If you are a newcomer to patchwork and quilting, we also have an amazing giveaway running alongside this pattern launch. We are giving away three copies of Jo Avery’s new book, Patchwork & Quilting Basics: A Handbook for Beginners, and every newsletter subscriber is eligible to enter!
