With the passing of July 4th yesterday, today marks that dreaded day of Summer being half way over? Can you believe it? I’m still waiting to have my first piece of fresh corn on the cob, and to get veggies out of my garden, and you are telling me Summer is half way gone!! I don’t know about you but that does NOT make me happy! I hope all of you are enjoying your Summer to the fullest! I’ll post more pictures about what I have been doing later, but I wanted to give you all one last chance who are not participating in one of our Summer Block of the Week programs it hop on board with all the fun!
We are just rolling out our Week 4 this week of our SBOWs, which means there is about 1 more week for you to join in on the fun and sign up TODAY to receive awesome little packages each week!
We have 3 fun filled Blocks of the Week going on! We have our Wool Appliqué on Flannel-Twilight Garden, our Pieced Star Studded Affair, and our EPP My Fussy Cut Fantasy. When you sign up for the groups, we also have amazing Facebook Groups that allow you to follow along with everyone else, receive encouragement and also to learn new skills and how to do new things!
Our wool Summer Block of the Week is done on Flannel with cream, white and taupe colored wool to give it a fresh, up to date look. This quilt will truly be an heirloom once it is finished! Here is a small snippet of what the SBOW is all about with the Wool. Please take a peak at our website for full details.
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″. This year, it is in my opinion probably one of the most stunning SBOWs that we have done yet! You will have your choice of 3 different backgrounds; Lisa will be doing hers on the Midnight Navy flannel, we also have a Blue/Grey .
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 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+ Essentials. 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!
Our Star Studded Event is the Pieced Summer Block of the Week. Tackle those little stars and you will be a pro by week 3! LOL! You will have such a great time with these little blocks, completed blocks will finish at 6″!
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. You will be charged at the time of purchase $209.00, this is all of the blocks and shipping. By paying in full, you will receive a FREE week as our “Thank You” for only having to run your credit card one time! For more information click on the link.
Last and certainly not least we have an English Paper Piecing Block of the Week for those of you who love to paper piece. This is an exciting quilt where each week you will be doing something different!
Each week you will receive a different row to complete, each row will allow you to perfect your fussy cutting skills and learn the charming little shapes that you can create by fussy cutting. You will be charged at the time of purchase $198.00, this is all of the blocks and shipping, by paying in full, you will receive a FREE week as our “Thank You” for only having to run your credit card one time!
