2014 Saturday Sampler - Southwest Stars *** RETIRED NO LONGER AVAILABLE ***
Have you ever been driving through the southwest at night - the stars are so clear and beautiful, it is breathtaking! Nancy Rink has invoked the beauty of the stars in this sampler quilt, and we have selected it for our 2014 Saturday Sampler! Each block is named after a star - you'll see Carina, Andromeda, Perseus, and more! The pattern shows an on-point setting with a double piano key border, although the quilt would be fabulous with a straight setting as well. And of course, it would be beautiful with a tone-on-tone inner border and your favorite print as an outer border (we'd actually recommend that for the Thirties version). Whichever you choose, we'll be here to help you either way. This is going to be a great project!

You choose your fabric style - batiks, thirties, or traditional. The star sampler blocks will be 12" blocks with a stepping stone effect in the corners. It looks great either on point or in a straight set! Finished block size will be 12". Finished quilt size will be approximately 60 1/2" x 88 1/2".

We have two ways you can do this project - as a Saturday Sampler, if you are local, or as a block of the month if you are not close enough to visit us each month! If you are doing it as a block of the month, the monthly fee includes everything you nned to make the top - blocks, borders, sashing, insets, plus your binding, and you do not need to pay the registration fee. If you are local, you need to register for the project and the details are outlined below.

Registration fee includes pattern and first block. You will need to select and/or purchase your background fabric, as well as any border fabric(s) you may need. The background fabric is used both in the blocks and in the setting.

If you are local and doing this project as a Saturday Sampler, complete your block and bring it back the following month and your next block is FREE! The feature fabrics will be a variety of medium colors so they will work with either a light or dark background fabric. Your block will include all of the feature fabrics to make the block. You will need to choose and purchase your own background fabric; the background fabric is used in the blocks as well as in the on-point setting. Choosing your background fabric will personalize your quilt, and will truly make your quilt unique to YOU!

For the on-point sampler project, you will need to purchase 3 1/2 yards of background fabric. we can discuss border fabrics with you when you decide if you want to do the piano key borders or a feature fabric border.

We are really excited about this quilt, and hope you will join us in this fun project. It will include a variety of techniques, and as always, you are welcome to stay and sew after you pick up your block, and we'll have short lessons on each of the techniques as we introduce them!

And again, if you are not local and would still like to participate, you can select the block of the month option and we will send you the pattern with the first block and sashing, and then we will charge and send you a block each month! Your cost will include background, borders, binding, and of course the blocks - everything you need to make this beautiful quilt top!
