Hi Everyone, I'm Valerie from www.PastimesOnline.ca ...a boutique for Quilters. Thanks to Ella and Skysie for inviting me to post on their blog to show off our newest block of the month; Sewing Machines. Yes, by Ella and Skysie.
This special block of the month comes complete with the cutest little history on each machine and our setting is slightly different in washed out, Serenity fabrics along with gorgeous dupioni silk. If you've never worked with dupioni silk before, why not give it a try?
If you choose to join our block of the months, you're in for a real treat as we include everything you need to get started, all cottons, all silks, all fuse, all pins, needles, patterns, step by step tutorials each month, AND Weeks Dye Works hand-dye floss to get you started! We also offer prizes each month if your block is finished on time!!
We offer finishing kits at the end!
Sneak-peak: Month 1, Mueller 15
Sneak-Peak: Month 2, La Favourite
Sneak-Peak: Month 3, Magician
Sneak-Peak: first 3 months, I'm in LOVE...
These just stitch up so quickly and fun using mostly the backstitch with the cutest little french knot and possibly a stem stitch if you like ;) Also, the BEST part is they come with iron-on transfers so no tracing!
Thanks so much for your time and if you feel so inclined, stop by and check out my blog: Val's Quilting and leave me a comment with YOUR blog link enclosed and that you found me here :)
We also have a quarterly NewsLetter, The Times bringing you blog highlights, tips and tricks, guests, new goodies and sew much more!
Until next time, stay happy and creative,
