Not yet bought your ticket to our Sew-Along Festival? Get your’s here!
This is not a pattern. This is a list of requirements designed to go with a pattern which will be released as part of our Sew-Along Festival.  

Fabric requirements:
• 1m cotton fabric for background (We recommend Liberty Plain Tana Lawn® or Liberty Wiltshire Shadow Quilting Cotton. Judy has used a pale pink homespun on her sample but this Liberty Plain Tana Lawn® Baby Pink S will look very similar if you would like to use Liberty.) 
• 80cm Liberty for borders (We recommend Liberty Tana Lawn®. Judy has used a cute low volume print featuring animals, find similar animal prints here)
• Assorted Betsy Liberty fabrics for half square triangle and appliqué blocks, Judy has used up to 12 different colours but a selection of fat 1/16ths and fat 1/8ths will be plenty, depending on how much variety you would like to include. (Find every Liberty Tana Lawn® Betsy fabric in stock here, 12 FQs would be more than enough to achieve a similar look to Judy’s sample)
• 20 cm yellow Liberty for hearts (Find all the yellow Liberty Tana Lawn® in stock here, a LQ would be suitable. Simply add a single FQ to your basket but in the checkout add a note requesting it be cut as a LQ instead. Judy has used Liberty Tana Lawn® Betsy W and Liberty Tana Lawn® Organic Elizabeth B and for her hearts)

• 5/8” hexagon papers
• 1/2” hexagon papers
• Perle 12 thread for quilting
• Needles for appliqué
• Thread for appliqué (We recommend Aurifil or Gütermann threads)
• Rotary Cutter, ruler and mat
• General sewing supplies (We recommend Sewline Glue Pen plus the Glue Pen Refill Pack if you will be glue basting your English paper piecing)

Project made using:
• English paper piecing by hand
• Appliqué by hand
• Patchwork by sewing machine

Please note: This is a list of the project requirements only. All links to products are recommendations only, you do not have to use what we have suggested. The full pattern and video tutorial for this project will be released during the Sew-Along Festival from June 22nd-29th 2024.
