Have you signed up to receive your Quilt Dots??

IMG_2555

Are you familiar with the Quilt Dot Company? They make these awesome magnets that look like quilt blocks or pictures of parts of a quilt. You can use these magnets in so many different ways such as; a magnet (of course), as a pin, bookmark, key chain, bag chains, needle nannies and for jewelry! They are made right here in the USA by a family owned business who does it all by hand! We loved their products and thought you would too!

We thought “How cool would it be to have the Quilt Dots made up our our designs?!!” So that is what we did! We have several in the works right now and just have a small handful of prototypes for you to see.

We thought we would start out with a Quilt Dots of the Month program staring in March 2016. This is only going to be 4 month commitment. If the program goes well, we will continue doing it. During those 4 months you will receive 6 Quilt Dots per month plus a tin to store them in for $10/month. That is like getting one Quilt Dot FREE!! 2 of the Quilt Dots will be EXCLUSIVE to the Program, meaning they will never be sold individually, you will only be able to get them if you are in the Program. And 4 of the Quilt Dots will be ones that will be available to the public at a later date. You will receive a total of 24 Quilt Dots by the end of your 4 month commitment.

We have received our Prototypes for the Quilt Dot Program.  Here will be the ones that you will be receiving, remember these are prototypes and the colors will be more vibrant on the ones that you will be receiving.  You will also see a couple duplicates, because they sent us 2 different ways they could do certain quilts and we needed to pick which one we liked better.

Once you have chosen to do the Quilt Dot program, go to the section Jewlery and then to the subcategory Quilt Dots, you will find all of the different items that you can purchase to go along with the Quilt Dot magnets. You will have the choice of the Scissor fobs, bracelets in 3 colors and the necklaces in 2 colors, or any combination you so choose. That will be sent with your first month in the program.

Make sure you sign up today. The deadline for this Club is fast approaching.  We will need to know every one who would like to be in it by the end of February so that we order enough for everyone who would like to participate.

Have a great week! Jessica

Back by popular demand we will be starting our next Wool Bundle of the Month program in March.  For those of you who do not know about our Wool Bundle Program or need a bit of a refresher on what it all entails….here it is……..there are a variety of 8 colors or textures in each bundle that you will be receiving and each of the pieces will measure approximately 7×8.  This is a great way for you to start building up your stash and to receive a whole bunch of textures and colors to work with.  These bundles retail for $20 regularly, BUT if you sign up for our Program you will receive each bundle for $15!!!  The Wool Bundle of the Month Program is a 12 month Commitment.

For those of you who are doing our Wool Bundle Program right now, this group will be completely different wools that what you will be receiving each month…..so if you would like to recieve 2 different bundles each month you can sign up for this one as well.  (Please note if you are doing the first program with us and would like to do the second bundle: there might be some duplicates along the way, as this is unavoidable.)

Japanese Fabric Block of the Month coming soon!

IMG_2544.jpg

Are you looking to do a simple and fun block of the month?  Look no further than this stunning quilt called Holly’s Garden by Shopgirl Quilts!  Gerri is doing an absolutely amazing job of picking out all of the fabrics needed for this quilt.  You will receive a total of 60 DIFFERENT Fabrics!!!!  Done all out of Japanese Fabrics both cotton and woven, this quilt will finish approximately 65 1/2″ x 84″.  Each month for your 6 month commitment, you will receive 10 Fat Eighths to work with to create your blocks for $23 per month.  You will be receiving the fabric for the blocks, plus the border fabric and the binding. Pattern is sold separately because we know some of you already have the pattern.

Every month you will not be receiving a picture of the blocks, instead you will be able to create the color combinations of your choosing!  Save some fabrics from previous months to throw into another months combination.  The color combinations are endless in this project!

This quilt is going the absolutely beautiful when you are finished with it!  I can’t wait for Gerri to get it put all together.

Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Jessica
