Block of the Month2014 Block of the Month

This wonderful quilt celebrates all the joys of crisp winter days with plenty of snowflakes, snowmen, ice skates, hot cocoa, and so much more! Die-cut felt snowflakes make applique easy, while a variety of embellishments add sparkle and interest. This Block of the Month begins in February and runs for 9 months, ending in October 2014 – just in  time to complete the quilt before winter! Each month’s kit will include the pattern (with full-color block photos), fabrics, and embroidery floss to complete one block. The final month will include your borders, binding, and embellishing kit. Fabrics are from multiple collections, including glitter fabrics, felts, and metallic gold accents.

Last Thursday of each month.  $100 at registration, $12.98/month
