Quilt Hearts

£17.00

Quilt Hearts beginner tapestry kit, a mini needlepoint patchwork of hearts in reds, whites and blues.

Quilt Hearts is a lovely small hearts design for an enthusiastic beginner, and also makes a lovely quick project for a more experienced stitcher. Once the design is stitched, there will be plenty of spare wool to use to extend the design and personalise the border with patterns, stripes and/or a name.

Once stitched you can frame your Quilt Hearts tapestry as a picture, make it into the centre of a larger cushion, or use it as a panel for a favourite bedtime book bag.

As a rough age guide, Quilt Hearts is suitable for children a little older than seven because of the colour changes between the patchwork squares.

Kit Contents

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but is a good idea for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching.

For Quilt Hearts, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in '9' if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.

Design Size

Printed canvas area: 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm), canvas size 10" x 10" (25cm x 25cm)

Choosing a Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but is particularly useful for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.

For Quilt Hearts, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.
