S is for Stitch

when Temecula Quilting Co. offered a kit.
i probably purchased it for just the custom ruler box alone.
i'm still learning how to use that silly thread winder.
they don't have a kit anymore.
you can probably gather one on your own.
they are up to G. but i'm not going to catch up.
i washed and dried the Kona natural fabric they included.
and since my hoop is 6 in.
i was able to cut 24 7-1/2 in. x 8 in. squares.
the designs are small.
a smaller hoop will let you cut enough squares.
but i'll get more fabric.
because an alphabet quilt will need more than 24 squares.
and i might just be making some extra blocks.
i added my favorite Mark B Gone marker.
and did some tracing so i am ready.
if you have the book you can follow along. with me.
or with them on their Saturday Stitching posts.
and you should check out their other kits and monthlies.
and no hesitating. their stuff sells out quick.
