2017 Block of the Month Programs

Awesome Ocean

Awesome Ocean is a 9 Month Block of the Month program. The Awesome Ocean quilt was designed by Elizabeth Hartman and features her new Reef Collection from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

This delightful sampler quilt features Elizabeth Hartman's newest animal block designs including Octavian, Salty, Puffy, Angelica, Preppy the Whale, Chuckles, Mr. Manatee, Tony the Turtle and Kelp! All blocks are sewn with simple straight and diagonal seams. No templates or paper piecing required! The Awesome Ocean quilt is made using fabrics from Elizabeth's Reef collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics, as well as Kona cotton solid coordinates and Essex linen blend. The background fabric is also Robert Kaufman's Essex yarn-dyed linen blend. The pattern includes a fabric chart with easy-to-follow letter and number codes to ensure you can duplicate the fabric placement. Our block of the month program includes the pattern booklet plus all the original fabrics for the quilt top and binding. The 71" x 83" quilt is perfect for a Twin bed or to use as a sofa/large lap quilt.

The Awesome Ocean BOM program will start shipping August 2017 and will ship on/about the 30th of each month.

There is a $15 non-refundable registration fee then $24.95 per month for 9 months plus shipping (if needed).

Gypsy Wife Quilt by Jen Kingwell

 

 

Gypsy Wife BOM Do you have mounds of scraps at your house?  Want to use them up?  If you answered yes, then this is Block of the Month is for you. In 2017 we will work through Jen Kingwell’s Gypsy Wife quilt pattern.  It is perfect for scraps!!  Each month we will have a class with instruction on how to easily construct the assigned blocks.  You may not buy and fabric for this quilt!  I know what you’re thinking! The quilt shop owner has lost her mind telling you that you can’t buy fabric.  Well, I know that some of you feel guilty for not using up all those scraps you have been saving because I feel the same way!  I want them out of the house so I can move on to new fabric! 

 

 How will this work?  Each month we will pick a main block and filler blocks for you to make.  This quilt looks quite overwhelming so let’s break it down a little at a time – it’s the only way to eat an elephant. When you come in for class you may bring a bin of scraps to pull from.  If you feel like sharing, you may let others pull from your bin and you may pull from another person’s bin (if they agree to).  Don’t get too carried away with bringing in bins – the size is limited to one (1) 18-20 gallon bin. Of course, each month you may bring in different scraps in your bin – you get the idea! Finished size of quilt 59” x 68”.

 

 You will be rewarded double clubhouse cash for each month that you complete your assigned blocks.  Remember there may be months where multiple blocks are assigned!  You have to keep up or it defeats the purpose. Come to Clubhouse on the first Saturday of each month to show off your completed blocks. Clubhouse cash will be redeemed at the yearend auction in December where you may bid on free products. There is a registration fee of $25 but no cost for the class.  Where else can you make a quilt with all your scraps for $25 and buy no fabric?  Join us in this fun challenge of scrap busting.

 

 Classes offered daytime and evening with times & days to be determined.
