A collaboration between 3 friends, running June to November:
- Kristy Lea, Quiet Play Designs - foundation paper piecing genius
- Angie Wilson, GnomeAngel - fussy cutting, template wielding ninja
- and me! Nic Vaughan, Craftapalooza Designs - Hand piecing maven
Once a Month
So, some context for you… We all ‘knew’ each other and were friends before the pandemic arrived but the arrival of that virus kicked off our almost weekly video chat sessions whilst we were in our homes navigating the world being turned upside-down. We are all scattered across Australia, air flights away from each other. Sum of Us is each of us celebrating our friendship and take on how we love to make patchwork using the same block.
How long does the Sum of Us run and what the cost?
For the next six months (June to November) we’ll be sharing a block a month, free for that month to download. Each month we’ll put our spin on the same block. Kristy’s will be foundation paper pieced, Angie’s will be rotary cut using templates and Nic’s will be rotary or hand cut using templates for hand piecing.
How do I get involved?
Quick sticks - sign-up at the beginning with any of us (Kristy, Ange or me) so you get all the blocks over the 6 months for free as they’re released. At the end of each month the block will then be able to be purchased from each of us, either as an individual block or within a quilt pattern. There will also be bonus layouts from each designer, details to come! You only need to sign-up with one of us and you'll receive the three versions for each month.
BONUS - free quilt design!
When you sign-up you'll receive my pattern Posse Patch using the Sum of Us blocks. The material requirements, tools and notion suggestions and first block will emailed out in June. So, if you want all the free blocks AND quilt pattern make sure you sign up in June.
* Full disclosure - by signing up to the Sum of Us you will be subscribing to each of the designer's newsletter list (Angie - GnomeAngel, Kristy - Quiet Play, Nic - Craftapalooza). You are able to unsubscribe at any time, but you want to stay subscribed to receive the Sum of Us blocks for 6 months, June through to November.
