Seasonal Silhouettes are laser pre-cut batik fabrics with fusible webbing already applied! This Fabric Essentials 12-month Block-of-the Month program features pre-cut, pre-fused applique pieces and is designed to provide you with everything you need to create a beautiful batik wall hanging for every month and season! Project Sizes: Finished size Applique + Background = 12" x 16" Finished size with Borders = 18" x 22"
We will select beautiful batiks that complement the applique pieces for each month and season. You don't have to spend time thinking about anything! Just fuse, sew, and go!
I found Fabric Essentials through a Google search. I think I saw the Seasonal Silhouettes on Pinterest, so I was trying to find a store that would ship to Australia. Easier said than done, sometimes!! Thanks again for all of your help: It can be tricky when you don't know anybody who quilts or does applique! It's so wonderful to have an online shop that is still so responsive to customers. Please sign me up to the newsletter :) Carolyn, Australia.
If you would like to order any of these individually as a kit, click below:
Each month you will receive a Kit for the next month's featured wall hanging. For example, around the first of June, you will receive the kit for the July wall hanging. This gives you time to make your project. You can choose which month you'd like to start with and over the course of the year you will make all 12 kits!
Using our July project as an example, this shows what you get with the BOM Club Top + Backing option.
