Fussy Cutting for the #wisecraftstitchalong
Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming response to the #wisecraftstitchalong! We had a little bit of a blip there when the first big batch of kits I shipped out had been delivered to me missing some vital pieces, but we have gotten all that figured out (whew!) and folks should have their replacement pieces by now. If you received a kit and don’t have the elongated hexagon shapes that you need to complete this project, please email me at email@example.com and let me know.
Alyssa Thomas of Penguin and Fish is going to be stitching her own version of the #wisecraftstitchalong this coming Monday evening! Be sure to “Like” her Facebook page in order to see her stitch and comment on the video. Alyssa does such a great job with these stitch along videos on FB, and she’ll be doing hers from beginning to end!
Please start posting images of your supplies and ideas for fabrics online next week, tagging them with #wisecraftstitchalong so we can all see and get inspired. I will be doing the same. In fact, I’m working on a fussy cut version (above) using my friend Betz White’s newest fabric line Juxtaposey. My FB Live stitching schedule in the Wise Craft Quilts group is-
Friday, 9/22– I will share my English Paper Piecing supplies- the kit, and how I create a carry-along kit that I keep in my bag for on-the-go stitching. I’ll also share some of the different ways you can approach your version of this piece, like fussy cutting motifs out of your favorite fabrics or using your favorite scraps (this is the way I made it for in my book), etc.
Monday, 9/25– Tonight we will learn the basics of how to English Paper Piecing and I’ll show you everything to know to stitch up the basic shape. Trust me, you’ll be addicted!
Saturday, 9/30– In this final video, we’ll wrap up by learning how I mounting it on mat board inside the frame, framing options, etc.
All FB Live videos are at 4pm PDT (what time is this where I live?)
