It's been quiet around here...we've been focusing so much energy and attention on the future. The things to come at Fat Quarter Shop. Sounds mysterious, but isn't at all, because you can just see all these things on our Coming Soon page. :P It's pretty full, isn't it? 11 pages for you to gaze upon with pleasure!
But SherriQuilts points out that "fall is such a long ways off!" and we tend to agree... so somewhere in all our free time (did someone just scoff?) we've created a new BOM and we're starting sign-ups now!!
We're really proud of it...it's called Pennsylvania Dutch Block of the Month (thanks for the name, Debbie!) and it stars the Spring Market release collection from Minick & Simpson, Wiscasset. It is Lovely!! Kudos to Kimberly for the beautiful piecing! And of course many thanks to Polly and Laurie and Audrey Wright (of Starwood Patterns) without whom we would never have had the inspiration! Ok ok...so enough with the award acceptance speeches!!
The instructions are super clear, thorough, and easy to follow, and we've planned it so that you'll have ample fabric to use in case you mis-cut a piece...no one's perfect all the time, right? You surely won't be short on your fabric! Each block will only take 1-2 hours to complete (pretty sure Kimberly wouldn't have even tried it if it took longer ;) and over a year you'll have a quilt completed in hardly any time at all!
So sign up today, and even reserve your backing! We've got high hopes for this BOM and we'd love you to be part of it!
