2015 $7 Block Program – Month 1
March 18, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
We are excited to introduce Toes In The Sand, a beautiful quilt by Jaybird Quilts, that forms the foundation for our 2015 $7 Quilt Block Program. Our version of the quilt – approximately 64” x 84” in size – features 12 pairs of scrappy pieced triangle blocks, and presents a fun deviation from the many years of traditional 12″ square blocks that have been featured in our programs!
Choose between two colorways, or plan to do both:
- Japanese Taupes: Features beautiful, imported yarn dyes and prints from Japan.
- Sophisticated Contemporary: Features an assortment of current, fun, sophisticated fabrics by such designers as Cotton + Steel, Carolyn Friedlander, and Cloud 9.
Please make note of the following:
– Our $7 Quilt Block Program meets at 8 am every 3rd Wed or Sat of the month (see dates and exceptions below) for 12 months, beginning in March, 2015. There are 12 pairs of blocks in this program, which will run from March 2015 through February 2016.
