There are some lovely things in the next issue of Elefantz HOME E-zine to tempt you!
Firstly, I will be starting a brand new Block of the Month -
"Shabby Roses Beauty"
In this issue we'll begin with the large centre block...
This BOM will run over 6 issues, and uses just three fabrics!
Do you like keeping all your needles, scissors and pins in one place?
"Shabby Roses Needles 'n' Pins" is perfect for you!
It even hangs prettily in your sewing room, so you're not searching through drawers and cupboards looking for your sewing notions...
In the last issue I walked you through making a 9-patch block, and how you could use that principle to make a Churn Dash block, which we later added in the Garden Gate cushion cover.
This month I'll walk you through a 4-patch Windmill block, which we'll take from this...
...and turn into this, by splitting the block, adding borders, some stitchery, and binding!
We'll make some very simple egg cosies with leftover fabrics, and voila!, you have the
"Split Windmill Breakfast set"!
As well, in this coming issue, I have a hand drawn 'Jenny of Elefantz' shabby roses recipe card for you to print out and share...
I also have an interview with Mary Jibson from the Fresh Hope organisation about teaching mothers who are undergoing drug and alcohol rehabilitation to use their creativity in craft.
It's so inspiring! You'll be amazed at what these ladies can make, plus we'll find out how you can help them in an upcoming raffle for a quilt I helped design.
