I wanted to update you on our Block of the Month for 2017. We have added a new colorway, "Tweet". The bolts arrived last week and I was so excited. The collection is exactly what I was looking for - earth tones in a great print. This colorway is hard to find in the modern and contemporary world of fabric. But Stof - my favorite Denmark fabric company - has really outdone themselves with this collection. These fabrics are not available for sale. I bought them specifically for Block of the Month. At a later date I may be able to have some yardage available, but right now they are reserved for Block of the Month. For this colorway the Block of the Month project is a little less busy. We are using more solid-like fabrics.
So far, people are very excited about this colorway. Space is limited so act now. Click here to read more about our Block of the Month program and enroll for this, or one of the two other colorways. Or, give us a call: 651-340-8263. There is limited space available for all the colorways, not just this one. Also, many of you have noticed that our Block of the Month cost a bit more this year. This is because there is no finishing kit this year. Remember, Block of the Month always gives you a discount for the fabrics you will be given. We also really try to give you a minimum amount of yardage so you have very few leftovers and pay only for the exact yardage you need.
Here are the other color ways:
"Spring Garden" is based on a few key bolts from the "Hand Maker" collection from Windham fabrics:
And our original colorway, "Black Forest", uses Japanese imports. My design this year brings to mind the "more is more" philosophy of quilt making:
So that's the scoop on our Block of the Month offerings for 2017. Block of the Month begins on February 11th and is always on the second Saturday of the month. I'm really excited about this year!
