|Fundamentals Sew Along A Block of the Week Program Beginning in January 2012.|
Each Wednesday I will be hosting a sew-along. We will meet in the classroom from 10:00 - 11:30 am to make a block AND I will do a blogpost too. Whether you follow along online or drop by the store you will be sure to learn a lot of new techniques and most importantly have a lot of fun.
I have been collecting the Stonehenge line of fabric for quite some time, and I think this is the perfect project for it. Samplers are so much fun: they really are a great way of learning how to do the various blocks and they are so pretty when they are done. By the time we finish the program we will have 52 blocks, enough to make a quilt. Whether you are a confident beginner or have a number of quilts under your belt you are all welcome to join. I don't know if I can wait until January to Start! But I will. I hope you will join me.
You can choose between two colorways: Stonehenge and 1930s reproductions. The quilt shown above uses a different fabric collection. Here are stonehenge fabrics we have chosen:
