Sue Daley’s “Round We Go” is made predominantly via English Paper Piecing, a hand stitching technique. This will be a labour of love over a year long period as we build the 48 blocks needed to make this quilt. Never fear if you’re new to English Paper Piecing, it’s a super easy technique that’s quick to pick up and lends itself beautifully to making complex block shapes. Here’s the high level information about this fabulous event.
Start Date: Friday 1 September 2017
End Date: Sunday 30 September 2018
ORDERING THE PATTERN, KITS & BUNDLES
I have collated a list of stockists and you can find the information by clicking here. This is provided as a courtesy and I take no responsibility (nor can I control) stock levels, pricing or postage.
To make planning easier I’m providing you with the order we’ll be covering everything so you can start to plan for your approach to getting them done. As I’ve said before, and will continue to say, this sew-along is going to test your techniques, your endurance and your stamina. It’s going to be totally worth it, so get ready to have a heck of an adventure.
