We found this beautiful block of the month at fall 2017 Quilt Market and posted it on both our Facebook and Instagram pages, (you are following us on Facebook and Instagram, aren't you?), to rave reviews. Fast forward and we are ready to offer this as a Block of the Month starting in May of 2018. We will be offering three color ways, Scrappy, Batiks, or Christmas.
What this means to you is that in looking at all of the fabrics in the main picture above your colors will be what changes depending upon your color way selection. The background will be a white tone on tone Moda Grunge for all three-color ways, Scrappy Prints, Batiks, or Christmas Prints. Finished size of Almond Country is 60" X 60". I think it would look amazing with another optional outside border added!
Each month you will receive a color copy of the block or blocks you will be making, your background fabric, the fabrics required per your color way choice, and the papers plus instructions to complete your blocks. There will be two months where you will need to complete two blocks as the total quilt is made up of 16 blocks.
And here is the really cool thing...don't know how to paper piece? We will be able to link a video from the quilt designer for you to see the steps for both the New York Beauty blocks and the pointed borders used in this quilt. There will also be Tips & Tricks included with the written pattern instructions!
Almond Country Block of the Month is a twelve-month BOM that will start in May. Pickup date for Almond Country will be May 15th with is the third Tuesday in May. Successive blocks and your monthly pattern will always be ready for pickup on that same Tuesday of each month. Participation in this Block of the Month will require a credit card to be on file at our shop. Costs will include a $20 signup fee and $22.99 per month + applicable sales tax + shipping if required.
We would love for you to join us for this fun quilt we are affectionately calling "Almond Joy"!
(I think we just want to eat that candy bar while working on our blocks!)
