Project Highlight: Flower Garden Laser-Cut Block of the Month!

Flower Garden by Kim McLean is literally one of the most stunning quilts I've ever seen! And I've seen a LOT of quilts. It might have a little something to do with the fact that I am a sucker for Dutch folk art (um, can we TALK about how CUTE that little pair of Dutch horses at the top is??) and an even bigger sucker for the King of Color, Kaffe Fassett! But the crazy thing is, even with how much I fell head-over-heels for this beauty the first time I saw it, I almost laughed at the prospect of making it...I am just NOT the quilter with THAT much time. Sad story, I know!
But luckily, last year we discovered the incredible process of Laser-Cutting and as you all know we've just been CRAZY over this innovative new technique!! With our Laser-Cut Applique Block of the Month programs, we can all actually imagine tackling this stupendous undertaking of a project when half the work is already done! Each and every one of those applique pieces in pretty Kaffe Fassett fabrics comes to you pre-cut to perfection with fusible already on the back! Super convenient, eh? And it's Soft Fuse, the most amazing feeling fusible we've ever used! You seriously can barely feel a difference in your background fabric and the applique piece once you've pressed it! 
All you need to do is SIGN UP, then grab yourself some pretty Perle Cottons and a Pressing Sheet because with once you get that first block, after just a little ironing, you will be ready to start stitching!! You can rock a pretty blanket stitch around all those pretty pieces or you can make it even faster by using your machine and a zig-zag stitch!! I'm pretty sure its impossible to make this process any easier, quicker or more instantly gratifying!! SIGN UP TODAY!!
