August 2022 Perfectly Pieced Quilt Blocks from M.E. Time Delivered!
The August Perfectly Pieced Box from M.E. Time Delivered is available now!
Last month I had so much fun making the adorable July quilt blocks on my embroidery machine that I was watching my mailbox EVERY DAY waiting for the August box to arrive.
UPDATE: Scroll down to the end of this post to see my finished project: a fall table runner! See all my Perfectly Pieced embroidery projects.
Perfectly Pieced from M.E. Time Embroidery is a new monthly subscription box to help you piece and quilt perfect blocks using your embroidery machine. Kimberbell Designs is the parent company of M.E. Time Embroidery so you know the designs, embroidery files, and instructions will all be impeccable!
In-the-hoop (ITH) quilt block design files are included with your subscription and come in 4 different sizes (2”, 4”, 6”, and 8”). The Perfectly Pieced subscription also includes a project for each block size. Since I made 2” blocks last month, I decided to try the 6” size blocks next.
Don’t miss the video I made where I embroider a block for you in real time!
Aren’t the fabrics for this month gorgeous? Look at the quilting too!
This is the second box I have received. It’s slated for August 2022, so if you hurry and sign up at M.E. Time Embroidery you can get the same one.
The August Perfectly Pieced Doorstep Box includes:
- A gorgeous bundle of fabrics that are lovingly curated and contain enough fabric to make one (or more) of the Perfectly Pieced Projects,
- A spool of Glide thread,
- Printed stitch-out instructions for embroidering,
- A tip card,
- And a package of stickers for labeling your cut pieces for this project or another one.
All of the digital design files, stitch out instructions, and project patterns will be added to your M.E. Time Embroidery account each month. If you prefer, you can sign up for a digital only subscription that doesn’t include the ‘doorstep box’.
There are so many ways to sew your blocks together and so many different fabric combinations to try, that I may have problems following the instructions!
There is a table runner project in the instructions that I’m working on. The table runner project is designed for the 8” blocks but I’m doing it with 6” blocks instead and I explain why in my YouTube video. I think I’ll make another change to their table runner design too: I’m having so much fun making the blocks that I’ll probably make 12 instead of 8!
Watch the video to see the magic in action plus you’ll find out my tips for saving time, fabric, and batting!
I used a few tools and notions in the video that aren’t included in the box. Here are some links in case you want to learn more about them:
- Double curved scissors from Gingher (great for trimming fabrics and applique in the hoop)
- Kimberbell paper tape
- How to find mesh stabilizer at the thrift store
And here’s my finished table runner! I really love how nice and flat it lays with the perfectly pieced and perfectly embroidered blocks.
They layout and number of blocks is a little different from their table runner because these designs are so easy to adapt and make your own. After making all my blocks (the sashing strips are machine embroidered ‘blocks’ too) and sewing them together, I followed the instructions in the included General Resource Guide, to finish the project. Easy peasy!
