February Block of the Month
Introducing our new Block of the Month
by Sassafras Lane Designs
Cadence Court – Aussie
Using “Ella Blue’s Basics” fabric line, we have created a customized kit for you with colorful, happy prints on a variety of dark backgrounds.
Cadence Court – Batiks
Because a quilter has to have options, we also created a customized kit for you using gorgeous, vibrant “Hoffman1895” batiks on a variety of fun white on white fabrics.
Cadence Court is not your typical block of the month. This is a new, fun, paper pieced project that even someone new to paper piecing can tackle. There are no specific times you have to come for a demonstration and no deadlines for the completion of the wedges. The kits will be available the third week of each month. They can be picked up at the Quality Quilterz studio, or they can be mailed to your home. We will be posting tips and tricks and will be available in the studio for any questions you may have.
Each month your kit will include all the fabric that you need to make two wedges. At the end of the 12 months, you will have created all 24 wedges and you will receive your finishing kit of backgrounds. You then will have all you need to complete the 60″ x 60″ quilt top, including the binding! We will be holding demonstrations in both February and March, for anyone who would like a refresher in paper piecing.
The pattern for the quilt comes in a pattern book which also includes:
- Clear, concise paper piecing instructions with easy to follow diagrams
- A cutting list for each color and foundation for each month’s wedges
- Cutting diagrams for the backgrounds with the most efficient placement
- Full size foundation templates with instructions for photocopying onto your foundation papers
To join the Block of the Month, simply pay the $8 registration fee and purchase the book (available here) from “Sassafrass Lane Designs” for $24. You will also need an add a quarter ruler and “Carol Doake’s” foundation papers (both of which we also carry) You will be committing to 12 months at $16 per month. There will be a 10% discount for any quilter that wishes to prepay for all 12 months.
We are excited to kick off our Block of the Month on Saturday, February 24. We will be at the studio from 10:00-1:00 and will be holding demonstrations throughout that time frame. You may also come to the studio to pick up your pre-purchased kits Tuesdays through Fridays from 9:00-5:00, beginning February 24th. They will be ready after the 3rd Saturday each month thereafter. Kits can also be mailed for a $4 shipping and handling fee (in the continental U.S.).
Feel free to call us with any questions at (520)248-3033 or stop by the Quality Quilterz studio at 8421 East Broadway Boulevard. We loved putting together these quilts and we know you will too!
We hope to see you soon!
