We’ve just released Collection #52, Hello, Summer!, for The Art of Home Club!! I just love these “juicy” colors and fabrics in this summer towel tote and quilt, they just say Summer to me!

This collection includes instructions for a throw size quilt, and a beach towel which turns into a tote. The handles make it easy to carry back and forth to the beach or pool, and there’s a large outside pocket for a book, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc. The towel tote also has a pillow pocket at the top- You can stuff it with a second towel to make a pillow when lying on the beach, or you can flip it inside out and use to hold towel on top of chair. Isn’t that clever?

Included are 6 adorable applique and embroidery patterns to usher in the fun Summer season! Flip flops, sunglasses, popsicles, an umbrella drink and bathing suits adorn these fun projects. For each design, there are patterns for both machine applique and hand embroidery, so you can choose your favorite technique.

These projects are EXCLUSIVE to The Art of Home Club, meaning that you won’t find them in stores or anywhere else on the internet. Only members of The Art of Home Club can get these adorable designs!!

We only open up The Art of Home Club to new members a few times per year- click here to find out more and to get on our “waiting list,” so you’ll be the first to know when we open enrollment again!
