BATIK BLOCK OF THE MONTH
Jump in anytime
Take a few minutes to check out our Batik BOM the next time you are in the shop. This is one we have done in the past and it really makes a beautiful quilt.
Here is how it works. Each month you will receive your fabric and a block pattern. You will get enough fabric to make nine 6 1/2" blocks . Each block has two contrasting fabrics. Make the nine blocks and then join them together to create an 18 1/2" square. The finished quilt measures approximately 74" X 79".
The BOM will run for 12 months. The Cost is $14.50 a month which includes the finishing kit. The finishing kit has 2 yards of fabric for the sashing and binding (your choice of fabric), 50 - 2 1/2" x 22" strips for the piano key borders, setting squares for the corners and the finishing instructions. You will receive the finishing kit when you pick up your 12th block.
Quilting bees may have been one of the first social networks. Ladies just like you got together around tables like these and shared stories. Join a class and make some new friends. We have a new Learn to Quilt Class which runs for four weeks. Check the class page for more information. We also offer a follow up class which will teach you some addidional things like how to make cornerstones, miter corners on the borders and more. Our methods and tools have changed a bit from this photo but it's still a great hobby. Stop in to see our sample and get signed up for class.
WE HAVE EXCITING NEWS!
Thank you to all who have stopped by and written to give us your best wishes. As I said, over the next couple of months we will be having sales on all of our fabric, books, patterns and notions. We hope you will come in and take advantage of our sales and help us reduce our inventory. We would like to head north in late August. Having said that, I have put a few more items on sale (see below).
For those of you who have quilts in the shop for quilting, Denise is still on schedule and will continue to work from her home after August. You can contact her at 813-622-9807 or via email at Thread_designs@MSN.com
Our plan remains to transition to an on-line store after the move and be a vendor at a few quilt shows throughout the year. We currently have an on-line store (www.quiltersqrtrs.com) as well as a site on ebay (quiltersquarters13). We hope you will continue to visit us there in the future.
