Exploring Your World Stitching Clubs


Where do you like to stitch? Around the house? Out in nature? While exploring your town? Or maybe as you travel the globe? No matter where you pick up a needle, if you like stitching cuteness, I'm pretty sure you're gonna enjoy the latest Wild Olive stitching clubs!

Out in Nature Stitching Club

This club is part embroidery and part English paper paper piecing (EPP). The result is an embroidered mini quilt (different from the Around the House mini) that is almost entirely stitched by hand.

We start with embroidery. This project features six embroidery patterns representing different elements in nature. And I've tried to choose things that will be fairly universal, so everyone around the world will feel some connection.

Each pattern fits on a 2-inch hexagon, and that's where the English paper piecing comes in.

Along with the embroidered hexagons, you'll also make extra pieces and everything will fit together to make a mini quilt.

And because both embroidery and EPP are so portable, you'll actually be able to stitch out in nature!

Basic instructions for English paper piecing, quilting, and binding are included, though it's helpful to have some knowledge of embroidery. If you need assistance with this project along the way, I'm happy to help.

Plan to set aside a few hours a week for this, and you'll have a hand-embroidered, hand-pieced, and even hand-quilted mini quilt in eight weeks.

Out in Nature Stitching Club

The Out in Nature Stitching Club begins on May 2, and club members will receive an email with a new pattern or set of instructions each Tuesday for the 8 weeks. If you sign up after the club starts, you'll still have access to all of the emails and files that have already been sent.

As mentioned, this is part of a series. Which means that if you end up signing up for all four parts (two more parts will still be coming!), you can combine all of the Exploring Your World patterns into one large quilt using EPP templates.

Oh, and one of my favorite parts about these stitching clubs is the connections that form between club members as we all share our progress via social media, using the hashtag #OutInNatureStitchingClub

Normally these clubs are $8.00, but you can sign up for the Out in Nature Stitching Club for just $5.00. So long as you sign up before the club ends! That's the total price, by the way, not a weekly price. We're calling it a long-term-introductory-price-because-Mollie-took-so-long-to-release-it deal

Let's stitch out in nature!


The Around the House Stitching Club ran as an 8-week online pattern club, but it is now available as a complete download. This club combines embroidery and English paper piecing, and is suitable for beginners, while fun for experienced stitchers too.

Around the House Stitching Club

This project features six embroidery patterns representing rooms in your house. Or if not YOUR house, they're at least be items that are part of your daily life. And actually, each pattern is made up of three smaller patterns that you can use together or separately. So technically, you get 18 small patterns.

The embroidery combines with English paper piecing to make a mini quilt. Full instructions and templates are included, and some embroidery experience is recommended.

    Hi Mollie :) I have to admit I haven't finished the states.... BUT I'm still excited about the new around the house project. I went instantly to sign up. And yes I will be getting all 4, not to say they will get finished, I will give it my best shot! If not they will go in my someday retirement stash. Thanks for giving us such cuteness. Sandy

  3. Just signed up! I also have not finished the states :(, but am excited for this new project. I am going to try my best to not get behind. Smaller projects are much easier for me to tackle at this point in my life. Thank you!

    1. I just grabbed what made me happy from my stash, so I don't even know what all of them are. I do know that the orange was a JoAnn Keepsake Calico, but it was nearly two years ago.

  8. Count me as another one who hasn't finished the 50 states yet, but how can I resist a new club? :)

  9. Hi! I love the first pattern! I was just wondering when we would get the info for using all 4 themed patterns to make the bigger quilt not to make the mini quilt? Thanks!

    1. Hi Whitney! I was supposed to mention that in my first email, and I got distracted by all the other things. Sorry about that! It will be there in the next email. Meanwhile, you can stitch the first hexagon as for the mini quilt. Or...send me an email and I'll fill you in right away.

  10. Hi Mollie! I was just curious if you're going to be doing another stitching club this year? I missed your Around the House one, but I'd love to join the next one. :) Thank you!

  11. Hi Mollie. Can you go at your own pace or is this a hands on must do during specific times kind of thing? And seriously it's only $8 to join all at this time?

    1. This is definitely work at your own pace. But, if you embroider a hexagon a week, plus make a join a few extra pieces during that time, you can can take a couple weeks to finish it all off in a total of 8 weeks.

      Around the House Stitching Club ended as a weekly club, so if you purchase now you'll receive all of the patterns and instructions at once.

      And yes, it's just $8.00 per club! A new session with new patterns will be opening soon, and it will be priced separately.
