The exquisite Alice’s Wonderland Quilt combines a variety of quilting techniques in one stunning sampler quilt which features 100 blocks. Using a variety of machine and hand-sewn techniques, this quilt will improve your sewing skills. Gorgeous patchwork designs such as square-in-a-square, checkerboard, log cabin and Ohio Star combine with beautiful English Paper pieced blocks and raw edge applique animals, flowers, butterflies, hearts and stars. Starting with the simplest patchwork techniques and building from there, you will learn one or two basic techniques across ten different blocks, each one creating completely different patterns simply by using new arrangements and placements. Full sized EPP and applique templates, including Alice’s hand-drawn designs, will be provided. Each block forms a 6″ square which then joins together at the end with the other blocks to make the finished quilt comprising of 100 beautiful blocks. After you have made your main blocks, the stunning rainbow border of the quilt is added. It includes a double rainbow border, an ivory border, and a further square-in-a-square rainbow border using prints from the main quilt to tie the whole colour scheme together. Featuring step-by-step illustrations for all the techniques and full-size templates, this stunning sampler quilt will build your skills and leave you with a treasured heirloom to pass on down the generations.
