'Threads of Time' Block of the Month from Windham Fabrics
We are doing this Windham Fabrics block of the month starting in January. The shop kit is here and we have started working on the store sample so drop in after December 14 to see how it is coming. I hope to have many of the flying geese done and to be working on the 9 sets of 4 blocks for each month. The quilt is a double size but can be made larger by adding borders. We haven't received the first shipment of fabrics so the cost isn't set yet. But here are some details:
This is a 10 month program to make the blocks and flying geese. For each of nine months you receive fabric and the pattern to make 4 blocks of one design and 40 flying geese. In the tenth month you receive the fabric for the borders and binding.
The cost is divided into 10 months and includes all the fabric for the top and binding, the patterns each month and a class if you wish to learn as you go. I can send the kits by Canada Post if you want to participate and live to far away. Postage is at cost.
It seems the block of the month programs we have done and are planning to do have a 1800s reproduction look to them. The store was built in 1869 so I guess there is a theme to them.
I will post more information as it becomes available.
