2018 BLOCK OF THE MONTH CLUB
Please join us for our new Block of the Month Club! Using The Quilt Block Cookbook by Amy Gibson as our guide, Karis and Jenni have selected 12 blocks and a beautiful modern layout for the finished quilt top. When you are done, you will have a 79 1/2" x 84" top ready for quilting and extra blocks for a second quilt or other fun projects [Karis is making a set of placemats].
The blocks, fabric and layout are contemporary with a fresh modern vibe! The blocks, while appearing intricate, are relatively uncomplicated, making each a very enjoyable design. Suitable for a confident beginner and with enough variety for accomplished piecers, this BOM will appeal to all levels. You'll be working with traditional piecing, gentle curves and basic paper piecing.
The Club Subscription includes Amy's book and the hot-off-the-press fabric, Palm Canyon, from the amazingly talented (and oh so super nice) Violet Craft. Paired with coordinating Moda Solids and Carolyn Friedlander's versatile Architexture line, your fabric pull will be well rounded. In addition to ample fabric required for the quilt top, the subscription covers 8 monthly demos either in-store (the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 5pm) or online (the 3rd Friday of each month) - making this year's BOM event accessible worldwide! All you will need to add is your favorite backing, binding and imagination.
As we love to do, we will be offering a two different BOM kits. Want extra fabric for a larger quilt or multiple projects? You choose the kit with Violet's Fat Quarter bundle.
To simplify the process and eliminate unnecessary shipping charges for our out-of-towners, you will receive your pattern book and the bulk of required fabric in one package prior to the start of Month 1. A second package will come in Month 7 and will include the fabric required to piece your quilt top. We will meet once a month for 8 months, beginning March 20th; however, our first block demo won't be until April 17th. Plus, with our videos, you can truly jump in at ANY time and catch with the rest of us at your convenience!
