I know how anxious some people are to get the kits and start on Ruffled Roses, but the kits may not be available at the first of the year because the fabric is so new that not much of it has even been produced yet!
John and Justin are working on it and the kits will be assembled as soon as they get the fabrics from P&B. I can tell you that despite the disappointment of having to wait, you are going to LOVE this fabric. The colors are GORGEOUS and the fabric feels WONDERFUL! Please be patient, and don't give up on the kits. They will be worth the wait!
In the meantime....the first month will be the appliquéd center. If you are planning to try my machine appliqué method with Ricky Tims' Stable Stuff, you will be able to prepare your Stable Stuff foundations when the pattern is made available on January 1st, then when you get the fabrics you will be ready to pre-wash them and get started on turning the edges.
If you are planning on fusing the appliqué, you can prepare the fusible product of your choice.
If you are planning to do needle-turn appliqué, you can prepare your templates.
It will be worth the wait!
