Order a Finishing Kit to help you complete the Rainstorm quilt top if you received or will be receiving a Weather Report Stashin’ with Stephanie fabric bundle in late December or early January. If you signed up for the club in December, your first Stashin’ bundle will come in January.
Restocked kits will have the fat quarters you did not receive, but no background or binding. The price is reduced to reflect this change. You will have everything I used to complete the quilt top, you’ll just pick your own background and binding.
The new finishing kits are available for pre-order, with an expected ship date of mid- to late-January.
It’s Stashin’ with Stephanie time! We’ve got a brand new fat quarter friendly pattern using our latest fabric collection, Weather Report by Wishwell for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. I love the digitally printed designs that look like a mix of graffiti and sedimentary rock layers. And the colors are just so rich, the photos do not do them justice.
This month’s pattern Rainstorm was inspired by the collection to look like layers of rock and sediment that have shifted and slanted over time. It’s my favorite kind of pattern, one that looks a lot more complicated than it really is.
We’re going to create a simple strip pieced unit, cut it apart and sew it back together on a 45-degree angle with some sashing in between to create the slanted look. Just follow the layout diagram to get everything lined up correctly and square it up when you’re done and you’ll have a fabulous quilt.
