So here is my second favorite quilt from Fall Quilt Market....I stumbled upon this from the picture above and started to do some research only to find out it is a new offering that is English paper pieced.
Since we have started an English Paper Piecing club at the shop we have all agreed to do this crazy 36 Ring Circus as a group! I have decided to open this up to all of my customers as a Template and Papers Block of the Month because so many people in our club love this quilt that I thought some of you might like to join us!
This Block of the Month will consist ONLY of the templates and papers you will need each month. It will NOT include the fabric. Each month we will ship you the required acrylic templates and papers. This will be a 12-month Block of the Month with Month 1 consisting of the arc templates used for the Double Wedding Ring, plus the required papers and fabric requirement chart costing $42.00 + applicable tax and shipping.
Months 2-11 will include the acrylic templates for the inner ring sections plus the required papers and will cost $12.99 + applicable tax and shipping.
Month 12 will consist of the acrylic border templates and the required papers costing $20 + applicable tax and shipping.
Please note I am NOT charging a sign-up fee for this Block of the Month!
Finished size of this quilt is 72" X 72"and would look amazing in just about any fabric combination you can think of, scrappy, red white and blue, batiks, black and white, etc.
We will require a credit card to be on file at the shop for participation in this program. Start date will be Tuesday, April 24th which is the 4th Tuesday of the month. Successive pickups will always be ready on the same Tuesday of each month thereafter.
If you are local and would like to join us at the shop our next English Paper Piecing meeting day will be Thursday, March 22nd from 10a-4p. If you don't know how to "EPP" we can get you started. This club meets each month and you can find the date on our website under classes.
If you are interested and do not live locally there are many online tutorials to get you started with "EPP". Please call the shop at 979 595 1072 to sign up.
We have a bright new 1930s inspired Block of the Month by the wonderful Judie Rothermel!
Aunt Grace "Baskets of Scraps" is a 9-month block of the month, (BOM), starting in February of 2018 on the first Tuesday of the month and running through October 2018. Designed by Judy Rothermel for Marcus fabrics, the Aunt Grace "Basket of Scraps" is mostly a pieced top with just a little bit of machine or hand applique for the corner hearts. Judy is an industry leader in the design of 1930s reproduction fabrics, and known for her well written patterns.
Finished size of this quilt top is 97" X 103". We have a sample of the actual fabric at the shop if you would like to see it.
Cost for this BOM will be $23.99 per month for 9 months with a $20 sign-up fee, and will include all of the fabric required to make the top, the required book, and applique templates for this price, plus tax if applicable, and shipping. Participation in this BOM will require a credit card to be on file at our shop.
There will be an optional "oopsie kit" available as we progress along with this project. Your first pickup/ship date will be Tuesday, February 6th, 2018. Successive blocks will always be ready for pick up and/or shipping on the first Tuesday of the month thereafter.
