2017 $7 Block Program – Month 5 – Wed
August 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Our 2017 $7 Block Program is now underway!
Introducing: Quilting Cousins (67″ x 67″), a beautiful quilt by Lori Smith of From My Heart to Your Hands, that forms the foundation of our 2017 $7 Quilt Block Program.
Our interpretations of Lori’s quilt feature a dozen scrappy 10″ blocks in either a colorful batik, or rich traditional palette. Included in the program are two additional settings for the blocks, allowing for full customization!
Be sure to stop in and see our display of one completed block in each colorway, as well as a dozen miniature (glued) mock-ups of the program’s sampler blocks. It will give you a good indication of the fun that lies ahead in 2017!
Participants choose between two colorways, or plan to do both:
Our colorful batik palette includes fabrics from Hoffman Batiks (including the Me + You collection) and Moda Batiks (including the Latitude collection by Kate Spain).
Our traditional palette features rich reproduction fabrics from Andover, Windham, Moda, and Marcus Fabrics.
Please make note of the following:
