We have had many Quilters sign up for our Block of the Month "Almost 50 Shades of Gray" using Faith Jones pattern "Starfall". The registration period for Starfall ends this Friday, January 30th.
Our second Block of the Month offering is "Patchwork City" by Elizabeth Hartman. This is a real skill builder sampler type quilt. Elizabeth has created the most unusual modern blocks using traditional piecing, creative piecing and blocks using freezer paper templates. We will be doing 2 blocks per month for a total of 25 blocks. This is a 13 month program at $27.50 per month. You will receive the book the first month. Here are our first two blocks...
