Have you seen the cute little patterns from Bonnie Sullivan of All Thru the Night called Tuxedo’s Tales? It is basically the adventures of Tuxedo the Cat all thru the months of the year. This is a 12 month commitment and will be only $11.50/month for the Kit and Pattern!!!! By doing the block of the month it will be like receiving one full month FREE!!! They will retail individually in a couple months for $12.50 for kit and pattern.
Each month starting in April 2016 you will receive one kit and pattern to work on. You will receive the kit for the month a head of the one that we would currently be in, so that “in theory” you will have it done to put up for the month that you would be rolling into. Another words: In April you will receive the May kit to work on.
If you would like to use the buttons for the eyes, berries and all other options that she uses on her patterns, you can select to receive the button pack. The button pack will be $12.50 and will have ALL of the buttons in it to do the whole 12 month program. So make sure you put those in a safe spot when you get them with your first month!
There are a couple different options that you could do with this project. You could make them into individual pieces that you hang on the wall in a frame, you could turn them into one big quilt, or a couple small ones, or you could individually give them away to friends and family.
Al is making these awesome frames to go along with the Block of the Month. You can choose the Cranberry Red Color or the Spring Green Color or Both if you would like too. The Spring Green color is slightly darker than the eyes of Tuxedo the Cat. The frames will be $30 a piece plus shipping.

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.
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.
