We have told you about the Wool Summer Block of the Week, and we know many of you have asked what the Pieced Summer Block of the Week is. Well are you ready for our Star Studded Event?

How the Summer Block of the Week will work this year?

Like most of our SBOWS this will be a 12-week commitment from all of you, we will start shipping the SBOW June 5. You will need to ask yourself if you would like to pay monthly or pay in full. If you are paying monthly you will be charged $76.00 for 3 months. If you are paying monthly we are going to be doing something a little different this year, we are going to be charging you in May for your first set of blocks, this allows us to start shipping your blocks on the first of every month instead of having to wait until the 6th of every month when our billing cycle completes. If you would like to pay in full, you will be charged at the time of purchase $209.00, this is all of the blocks and shipping. If you are paying in full, you will receive a FREE week as our “Thank You” for only having to run your credit card one time!

Pricing:

Per Week: $19.00 ($16.00 + $3.00 Shipping)

Paying Monthly: $76.00 (3 months)

Pay In Full: $209 (1 week FREE)

Backing Fabric: $66.80 (30% discount) 7 yards

Supply Kit: $45.00

What do you receive each week?

Our Star Studded Event will be the star of the show once you have completed it. We decided to go easy on you this year with the blocks that you will be making each week. Each week you will receive 60 lights and 60 darks that will allow you to create 10-6 1/2” square blocks, 6” finished. While we will need to reuse some of our fabrics more than once, you have the potential of getting more than 1,200 different fabrics! Once completed Star Studded Event will measure approximately 90”x96”. There will be NO Finishing kit needed for this quilt; you will have everything you need to finish this quilt minus that Backing, as that is optional.

Some things to consider:

 Supply Kit

Our Supply Kits are helpful things that you might need along your quilting journey in our Summer Block of the Week. This year your Supply kit if you choose to purchase it will include: Aurifil 2310 and 2370, 3”x7” Itty Bitty Ruler, 13”x13” zipper bag. There isn’t much that you need for this project, but we thought everyone could use some thread, a ruler and a place to put your finished blocks. You will need the 2310 for the light blocks, and 2370 for the dark blacks. Regular price for these items is $56.69 plus shipping. We are offering it to you at a discounted price of $45.00, which includes shipping.

Backing Fabric:

You are going to need 7 yards of backing fabric to complete your quilt. If you would like to purchase it from us we are extending a 30% discount on your backing fabric. Which means that instead of paying $84.00 plus shipping, you will only be charged $66.80 and that includes shipping! Just let us know in the comment section what color you would like, and we will pick out an amazing one for you!

As you can see by the picture of our EPP SBOW, it is different than anything we have ever done before. Each week you will receive a different sized background strip and along with having a different shaped paper piece to create. Like the name suggests, most of your fabric you are going to be doing Fussy Cutting. If you do not want to do that you do not have to, but the patterns that were chosen are ones will work great with Fussy Cutting.

Extras

Acrylic Window Set

One of the things you might want to consider, and what we think is very important is the 5-piece Window Acrylic Set for $23.00 (shipping included). This Acrylic Set will allow you to skillfully place your papers to get all those amazing Fussy Cuts accurate. We cannot stress how important this Set is!

Paper Pieces Pack

If you are purchasing the Supply kit, you DO NOT need to purchase this pack; this is already included in the kit. If you are not purchasing the Supply Kit this is something you might want to consider purchasing, this pack will have ALL of the papers in it that you will need to complete the quilt. You will not have to reuse any of the papers, and will even have just few extra just in case.

thumbnail_IMG_5373l 

 Glue Refill Set:

Do you use the Sewline Glue Pen for basting all of your EPPs? If so, we have put together a Glue Refill Set, which includes 5-2 piece refill set for you. Which means that you receive a total of 10 refills for your Sewline Glue Pen for only $15.00 (includes shipping) this is like getting 4 refills for FREE!

thumbnail_IMG_5372l

Backing:

We are offering 30% off of your backing fabric if you purchase it with us! You will receive 4 yards of Backing Fabric for only $38.60 includes shipping! Just let us know what color you would like for your backing fabric in the Comment Section and we will pick you out something amazing!

Please remember that due to the constraints of fabrics and how they are fussy cut, there will be substitutions made of fabrics. All fabrics will have the same “personality” and will be made for fussy cutting.

International and Canadian Orders

In order to keep your shipping costs down when doing the SBOW, we have to do your shipping a little different. We will ship your first block and Essentials out the first week of the program. After that we will hold your blocks for a 4-week time period, and ship on that fourth week. This allows us to have just enough money in postage for you to cover our cost to ship it to you.   If you would like to receive yours weekly please call the Shop and we would be happy to help you, but please know that it costs us about $9.00 to ship you a package each week. Which means an additional $24.00 would be needed from you each month to get your SBOW out to you weekly.

Will there be a Freebie this year?

Of course there is going to be a Freebie this year! We are planning that one out while I am typing this email to you. This year if you are participating in one of our SBOWs, you will automatically be getting one of our Freebies. Please note that if you are participating in more than 1 SBOW you will only receive 1 Freebie.

If you are not participating in our SBOW this year but still would like to receive the Freebie, you will need to make a purchase of $25.00 or more, each week that the SBOW is running. If you miss one they can be purchased for $5.00 a piece.

Facebook Group

We will be having a Facebook Group again this year. This group is absolutely amazing to keep you motivated, to learn new tricks and to see exclusive teachings from Lisa. This year we are planning a few Facebook Live posts for everyone to learn from, which will be a lot of fun! PLEASE make sure that you first are friends with ME, Jessica Holz on Facebook; from there you will need to send me a message to let me know that you are in the SBOW and would like to be added into the group. I will then add you into the Group and you are ready to start participating and asking questions if you have them. You NEED to be friends with me as it is a CLOSED/PRIVATE group, I am only able to add you if you are my friend.

Summer Block of the Week-Wool is HERE!

SBOW Block 1 Web-1

I’m looking outside waiting for an impending snowstorm and writing to you about our Summer Block of the Week! Something has to be wrong here, and I think it is the Snow Storm! We are starting our Summer Block of the Week kick off a little early this year; while we are still working on our Pieced and our Hand Pieced SBOWs, we are set to launch our Wool SBOW. We are in a bit of a conundrum with fabric and know that we are going to have to special order the Flannel Background because Moda does not have enough to cover what we believe we are going to need. With that said, we are starting the sign ups for our Wool SBOW this week so that we are able to order enough fabric to cover everyone who would like to participate.

This year you are going to need 8 yards of background flannel to complete the quilt. Our quilt we figure is going to measure around 90”x 90”. Yes, it is going to be a larger size quilt this year, it is in my opinion probably one of the most stunning SBOWs that we have done yet! Block sizes are 18.5” square, but will only be using about 16” of that for wool applique and the rest will be for the faux sashing. See diagram in Finishing kit to see meaning. You will have your choice of 3 different backgrounds; Lisa will be doing hers on the Midnight Navy flannel, as seen below.

 

We have also chosen anther color that we believe will look spectacular with the wools that we have chosen. We choose a light blue grey called Lake.

PLEASE NOTE: All wools will be exactly the same no matter what background fabric you choose. For some reason the other color showed up a little creamery, but they are EXACTLY the same!

 

1040-52 Background Web
Lake

 

How the Summer Block of the Week will work this year?

Since we have 8 yards of background flannel that is needed for this project you are going to receive all of that upfront in your first weeks shipment. Like most of our SBOWS this will be a 12-week commitment from all of you, we will start shipping the SBOW June 5. The 8 yards of flannel is going to be considered your “Essentials”, when signing up for this you will need to choose which color you would like for your Essentials (background fabric) to be, your background fabric will be charged at the time of the purchase and will be $114.00, which includes shipping. Next you will need to ask yourself if you would like to pay monthly or pay in full. If you are paying monthly you will be charged $80.00 that includes 4- weeks of Blocks and shipping. If you are paying monthly we are going to be doing something a little different this year, we are going to be charging you in May for your first set of blocks, this allows us to start shipping your blocks on the first of every month instead of having to wait until the 6th of every month when our billing cycle completes. If you would like to pay in full, you will be charged at the time of purchase $220.00, this is all of your wool blocks and shipping. If you are paying in full, you will receive a FREE week as our “Thank You” for only having to run your credit card one time!

Pricing:

Essentials: $104.00 (8 yds. of background fabric)+$10.00 for shipping

Weekly: $20.00 ($17.00/week plus $3.00 shipping)

**There is not an option, we are just letting you know what it is per week.

Pay Monthly: $80.00 for wool and shipping (essentials were paid for at time of purchase)

Pay in Full: $220.00 plus Essentials

**If you are in the state of Wisconsin you will have tax included on your purchase.

 

Thread Kits

Thread Kit $58.00
Thread Kit $58.00

We have built Starter Thread kits, this means that you might need to purchase more of one or more of these colors before you finish these appliques; because this quilt is not finished we do not know which ones you will need for sure. This quilt will all be in the same color tones as you see in the pictures, which means you are going to be using a lot of the same threads. Our Thread kit is $55.00 plus $3.00 for shipping for a total of $58.00.

Threads needed are:

#12: 0196, 0563, P3, 0178, M49, M23, P4, 5 (2 balls).

#8: 0196, 5, P4.

 

Supply Kits

Our Supply Kit this year is going to be a little different this year. This year we have put our Supply Kit in one of our logo Zipper Bags. The Supply Kit will include: Fray Check, 6-#24 and 6-#22 Chenille Needles, and 5-yards of Heat and Bond, and 1 package of Lite Steam a Seam 2, and the zipper bagged. We have had several of you who do not like the Lite Steam a Seam 2 that we have been using, so we have replaced it with the Heat and Bond, Lisa is using that on her blocks as well. Lisa will be using the Lite Steam a Seam 2 for her stems only. By ordering a Supply Kit you will be saving 25% off of the whole kit, this kit will be only $38.00 includes shipping, regular price $45.50 plus shipping.

Supply Kit $38.00

International and Canadian Orders

In order to keep your shipping costs down when doing the SBOW, we have to do your shipping a little different. We will ship your first block and Essentials out the first week of the program. After that we will hold your blocks for a 4-week time period, and ship on that fourth week.

Which means an additional $24.00 would be needed from you each month to get your SBOW out to you weekly.

 

Finishing Kits

 As we have done in years past, this SBOW will have a finishing kit available to you for purchasing somewhere in the middle of the program. You will NOT need any additional flannel fabric for the finishing kit. Your finishing kit would include the center medallion and the outer boarders. When we have pricing figured out, we will send a note home in one of your blocks, along with posting it on Facebook and in our Facebook Group. Here is a diagram of how we believe the SBOW will be put together and finished.

Will There be other SBOWs like there has been in the past?

Yes, there will be an English Paper Piecing and a Pieced SBOW like there has been in years past.  We are still working on those and should have those ready to go in a couple weeks.  As we stated above, our Wool SBOW needed to be out early as we are in a bit of a constraint with the fabric and want to make sure we have enough for everyone who would like to participate.

UPSP Informed Delivery By USPS is available for you.  You just need to sign up online with the USPS if you would like to be informed as to when your packages will be arriving.  Once we put it into USPS you will be informed of it journey to you and when you can expect it in your mail box.

Have a beautiful Day!
