Hello, Brimfield!

Hello, Brimfield!

Hey Stitchers, 

It's been awhile since we have blogged, but that's because we're busy preparing new and amazing projects for you to channel your EPP addiction through!

I've been so excited to share the story of the Brimfield block with you, so let me get to it! A few months ago I had the pleasure of talking to Kim Martucci & Nisha Bouri, of Brimfield Awakening, who are lucky enough to live near the Brimfield Antique Flea Market. 

During one of their more recent visits to this multi-acre market, they unearthed a bag of orphaned quilt blocks, including this:

Meet the Brimfield Block! 



Kim & Nisha said it was love at 1st sight - they went home and started remaking this block using English Paper Piecing. 

What they weren't expecting, was this incredible secondary pattern that the blocks offer once sewn together.

We're so in love with the Brimfield Block and the versatility that the design offers that we have created a new way to bring you Paper Pieces! The house shapes that make up the blocks include perforations. This way you can make the design truly your own - you can use one fabric, or 2 fabrics on each piece, by simply pulling the Papers apart! How cool is that?







We're also excited to announce that the Brimfield Block will be offered as an Auto-Ship program starting January 2018, which can help you pace yourself in the project and sew along with other Brimfield friends! 

You can still Pre-Order all the Paper Pieces and Acrylics, now, though! Head over to the Brimfield Block Project Page by Clicking Here.

Be sure to "Like" Brimfield Awakening on Facebook and follow along Instagram and use the Hashtag #brimfieldblock when posting your masterpiece!

Piece Out, 

Jess
