|Join our Saturday Sampler 2018 and go back to school with Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet’s fourth book. Spelling Bee includes complete instructions for 100 letter, number, punctuation and picture blocks in two sizes (6" and 12") PLUS 18 quilt projects. There are over 190 pages of full color instructions, beautiful photos and general schoolhouse fun. This is the hottest new book around, and you won't want to miss out on all of the fun projects you can do with this book! |
So have you been wanting to do a vintage quilt with a fresh new look? We are doing the Picture Day (12 blocks) Quilt from the Spelling Bee book by Lori Holt. This is the hottest book on the market right now, and you can get your 12 blocks FREE! This is going to be a really fun project!
The sampler blocks will be 12 1/2" (unfinished) blocks. Each month you will get one block. We will be using Lori Holt's new fabric collection to match the look and color way of the blocks in the book - Retro Bright. You choose your own background fabric; how much you need will depend on if you want to make the quilt with just 12 blocks, or if you want to add some of the additional picture blocks or letter blocks and make your quilt larger. We will also offer a finishing kit which has cornerstones, border, and binding fabrics. We suggest you include the sashing fabric in your background choice.
We will give you the book once you have paid your registration so you can plan your quilt and determine how much background fabric you need. We will also work with you on what you need for finishing kit fabric. Since we are using Lori's fabric, we will want to make sure we have enough on hand for everyone's projects!
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 need to make the top - blocks, borders, and sashing, plus your binding, and you do not need to pay the registration fee. You would need to purchase the book if you don't already have it. If you are local, you need to register for the project and the details are outlined below.
Registration fee includes the book and first block FREE. You will get your book when you register, and your first block in January on the first Saturday of the month.
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 fun, happy colors as shown on the cover quilt and samples in the book. Your block will include all of the fabrics except the background needed to make the block.
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 book (if you need it) with the first block, and then we will charge and send you the blocks each month! Your cost will include background fabric, sashing, borders, binding, and of course the blocks - everything you need to make this fabulous quilt top! Let us know if you also need the book - you will need to order that separately.
Note: We are currently offering the Sampler Class on the 1st Saturday morning, and we are also offering it on the 1st Tuesday evening of the month.
