Last Chance "Perennial Favorites'' Wool Applique Complete 11 Block of the Month Package

Sylvia Pippen Designs is excited to offer the last round of our beautiful and popular 2017 Perennial Favorites Block of the Month.  We have reduced the price, so you will receive the 11 original kits for the price of 10! You will receive everything listed below in "Block of the Month Contents".  The optional thread kit is no longer available, but we do carry many colors of Sue Spargo Ellana threads as well as Invisafil 100 wt polyester threads.  Check out the links below to see the variety of colors available. Limited Quantities.

Working with soft textural wool is my latest passion. NO edges to turn! Flowers can be easily fussy cut and embellished with simple embroidery stitches to appear dimensional; foliage is outlined in light green sashiko thread. The background fabric is Essex, a linen /cotton blend from Robert Kaufman Fabrics with a weighty hand to hold the wool appliqué but with a loose enough weave to easily pull thick sashiko thread through it. I am keeping the price down by making embellishment threads an optional extra purchase.* (*Optional thread kit is no longer available.) Be sure to scroll down to view threads. Many of you who do wool appliqué or embroidery have these threads in your stash already.
