Hey there, folks! Welcome to the September 2023 edition of the Quilt Block Club. We’ve got a fantastic lineup waiting just for you—fresh patterns, exclusive video courses, generous sponsors, and an exciting guest interview. Plus, we’ve got some Clubhouse shares that you absolutely can’t miss. Let’s dive right in.
Featured Quilt Pattern + Video Course
Ready to take your quilting to the next level? This month, we’re thrilled to showcase the Friendly Phantoms pattern. Whether you’re a quilting newbie or a seasoned pro, we’ve got you covered. Our comprehensive Video Course is designed to walk you through every step. Pick your favorite pattern format!
Fabric Kits: Make It Simple, Make It Yours
Life is simpler when everything’s bundled together, right? That’s why we’ve got the Friendly Phantoms Fabric Kit for those who want a hassle-free experience. Club members, don’t forget to use your exclusive coupon code.
These kits include all the fabrics you need for a stunning result: a white background, silver ghosts, misty cornerstones, and that eye-catching black-and-white stripe for the binding. This kit is a showstopper.
Tools to Make Your Life Easier
Let’s talk about efficiency and precision. In the video course, I’ll introduce you to some of my favorite tools that will make your quilting journey smoother. Especially, the Stripology Ruler by Creative Grids is your best friend for precise cutting. I also found my Oliso Iron and Seam Roller incredibly handy throughout this project.
Scrappy Version: Embrace Your Uniqueness
Our fellow Quilt Block Club members got creative with a scrappy version of Friendly Phantoms. Hats off to Jeanine S., who took a unique and colorful approach to the pattern. And guess what? This pattern is fat quarter-friendly, so you can dive into your fabric stash or explore a new collection that speaks to you.
