2016 $7 Block Program – Month 7 – Sat

October 15, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Our 2016 $7 Block Program is now underway!
Manor House (53″ x 70″), a fun quilt by Pam and Nicky Lintott, forms the foundation for our 2016 $7 Quilt Block Program.

Pieced entirely from 2 1/2″ strips (plus 2 yards of fabric for alternating blocks and setting triangles), our versions of the quilt feature a dozen scrappy 12″ blocks in either a bright contemporary, or rich traditional palette.

Be sure to stop in and see the quilts hanging in our gallery. We added borders to one of the samples to show you additional possibilities.

Participants choose between two colorways, or plan to do both:
QT-2016-Feb- 023 - CopyQT-2016-Feb- 041Our bright contemporary palette includes fabrics from such designers as Sarah Vedeler and Tula Pink, and our traditional palette features fabrics from Di Ford and other reproduction designers.

Please make note of the following:
Our $7 Quilt Block Program meets at 8 am every 3rd Wed or Sat of the month for 12 months, beginning in April, 2016 and running through March, 2017.

Pre-registration is required. The following fees are due at time of enrollment:

We have a lot of fun with this event and look forward to having you join us. But we would also like you to review these conditions before you make a commitment to the program as we won’t be making any exceptions.

A Few Conditions:

•This year, we require that you leave a credit card on file with us for any unclaimed blocks at the end of the program.
•You’ll get 1 free kit each month in your selected colorway. If you’d like to make multiple blocks in either or both colorways, you must pay for any additions.
