Wee Quilt Kits Block Of The Month August 2016

Wee Quilt Kits is a monthly subscription offering quilting supplies and material.  They are a Canadian company, which I love finding.  They have four different plans to choose from, Fat Quarter, Block, Mini, and Wee Quilt of the Month.  Plans start at $8.00 a month for the Fat Quarter and go up to $50.00 for the most expensive.  Shipping is free.  Items included vary with the plan you choose but do give you things you need or want if you’re quilting.  This was another one I picked up with a discount and I went with the Block of the Month.  I am a beginner quilter and thought this would be an easy way to get a few blocks and instructions on how to piece them together to build up my skills.  Let’s see what block we get this month.

The whole thing I get from them each month is so small that they can ship it in an envelope.  On the corner is their info and this time on the back they have a Thank You.

The block pattern this month is Modern Celtic and while it looks easy enough I have some serious issue after I get the squares made.  I can’t join them properly ever.  I don’t know what it is I’m doing wrong but obviously something and what I end up with is never a square.  This in no way is a reflection on the instructions or kits they send out, just my own lack of skills.

I love doing crafts and sewing has always been my first method.  I learnt at an early age and while I do go for other types this is my fall back.  My mother is a super quilter and that’s why I have some experience with it but most patterns and books are above my skill level.  This subscription is an easy way to get more proficiant and end up with a whole quilt at the end.  They have a special on right now, just type “QUILTLOVE” in the discount field and get 30% off!
