We are super excited to finally announce that this Block of the Month laser cut fabric is available! As you know, we love to collaborate – and this project was a collaboration with Hoffman California Fabrics, Fons and Porter and QNNTV. We started working with the talented crew at Hoffman in designing the quilt using their gorgeous hand dyed Bali batiks. We then laid up the pattern and sent it off to QNNTV for them to shoot a video series, for each month and block of the quilt. Next up, Fons & Porter is offering pre-fused and laser cut fabric kits. No tracing or cutting! Just fuse and sew!
The Aviary block of the month is a full-size batik quilt featuring beautiful bird and nature appliques of various sizes and shapes. Learn how to use an applique pressing sheet to make applique assemblies to speed up the construction of the quilt top. Each kit includes detailed instructions for assembly. The quilt also features a unique filigree border. Participants will have access to a free video each month showing techniques used to assemble the portion of the quilt and tips and trick for success in construction. Each month starting in May for 9 months you will receive a pattern and fabric to make a section of this full-size quilt. Kits will include a variety of Hoffman batiks for quilt top and binding. Quilt finished size is 72 1/2″ x 87 1/2″.
