We displayed this quilt in the store last week, and the buzz has been incredible! It seems like everyone wants to participate in this block of the month! The program to create this 70" by 70" work of art, which is a combination of wool and cotton applique, starts in May. Over twelve months, you will stitch the applique blocks, and then you will make the twelve filler blocks using the Liberty Quilting Cottons you have received in your monthly kits. The cotton applique can be done by whatever method you choose: needle turn or top stitch. If you have not done cotton applique, you need not worry. We will provide instruction during monthly demonstrations to show you how! If you have never tried wool applique, we promise that you will love it. It is remarkably easy.
The cost of the program is $29.95 per month, You will receive the monthly pattern, the background fabric, and Liberty Quilting Cotton and Weeks Wool Works wool for applique and filler blocks. When you pick up your block, you can stay for the monthly technique demonstration and sit and work on your block, if you like. There is no charge for the demonstration or the sit and sew time.
Binding is included in the quilt kit, but backing is sold separately. Thread for wool applique will be available for purchase.
We think this program will fill quickly, so sign up soon!
Please note that participation in this program is a twelve month commitment. You do not have to pick up your monthly kit on the specific dates listed above. If you cannot come at those times, you can pick up on a different day.
