Unboxing sewing subscription box – the July 2018 Maxie Mail goodies! This month’s box has supplies to make a small Orange Peel block quilt by Plum Easy Patterns. The petal blocks are pieced, not appliqued – no seams to match and no curves to pin!
What’s included for July?
- Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements 100% Pima Cotton solids (16 10″ squares)
- Art Gallery Succulence fabric for binding
- Orange Blossom Quilt Pattern by Bethany Miller of Plum Easy Designs
- Set of 4 die-cut heavy duty Cut-Rite Freezer Paper templates
- Elmer’s water soluble glue stick
- 50 wt. cotton Gutermann thread 1040
- Orange spice tea!
After filming this video, I have started making the orange peel blocks! They are not difficult and I am loving the consistency provided by the freezer paper templates. I’d seen this pattern/method before and had been curious to try it.
Maxie Mail is a subscription box for sewists that comes right to your door every month, filled to the brim with inspiration that will include fabrics, patterns, new ideas and tools to help you be successful in your sewing room. But perhaps most importantly, my motivation for this box is to help you build your skill set so that you are able to take on any project your heart can dream up! There will even be something personal tucked inside, just to celebrate YOU!
This box was sent to me complimentary from Maxie, but I’ve become a big fan over the past several months and highly recommend them for the fabric and project selection.
