New Block of the Months for 2012
We have several new block of the months that will begin early this year. Merry Merry Snowmen, My Favorite Things, Block of Seasons, and for the Kaffe Lovers, a new Kaffe Quilt is coming soon.
Merry Merry Snowmen
This 10-month block of the month program will begin in February of 2012. Each month you will receive the pattern and fabrics to complete that month’s block. The final month will include borders and binding. Fabrics will be from the Rouenneries Deux collection by French General. An embellishment kit including embroidery floss and buttons will be included with the block of the month. Cost is 23.95 each month.
Block of the Seasons – 4 Small projects – each quarter will bring a new, pre-selected wool kit based upon the upcoming season and pattern. Framed wall art, pillow, wall hanging or table topper. Construction is based primarily on hand work with either wool felt or felted wool and perle cotton or floss. January’s project will begin with a pillow, a palette of soft creams and pastels reflecting a pale winter landscape. Winter Blooms – $23.95 includes fabric for pillow and wools and floss to complete the project.
My Favorite Things
My Favorite Things starts this month and continues through December. Each month you will receive two blocks. The cost is $14.95 each month and does include binding. The book, Some Kind of Wonderful, is sold separately.
