Block of the Month & Monthly Clubs

Kim Diehl’s Journey's End
Block of the Month Program

6 month program, $31 per month


Journey’s End is a six part program featuring patchwork blocks with classic motifs. This program differs from Kim Diehl’s Simple Whatnot program in that this design is based on a larger scale block than the projects of Simple Whatnots. Each month participants will receive instructions and fabrics for the blocks, borders, and assembly of this beautiful quilt. The fabrics provided will be from several of Kim Diehl’s recent lines (Welcome Wagon, Sunday Best, Katie’s Cupboard) which together provide a balanced scrappy look,
all fabrics blending beautifully.

Check out the Shop Sample.

Starting in January 2017

we are building a neighborhood - welcome to the “hood”!



“Be My Neighbor”



January 21, 2017, at 10 am will be the groundbreaking ceremony
where you will receive the first two blueprints that will include the instructions for two houses. The estimated time for the completion of our neighborhood is August 2017. Each month you will receive the blueprints for two more houses and at the end we will have 16 new homes in our neighborhood.

This quilt is 16 large scale blocks, all done from your stash!!!! The program will last 8 months, sharing 2 blocks each month. Demos & other information about the blocks will be presented at each session. This program is an in store distribution only; you must be at class to get the free pattern. Watch for more information as we approach the end of the year.

This beautiful stash busting quilt is 105” square with the borders (our Shop sample does not have the borders so it is 85” square). Start out with the center block, selecting 4 or 5 focal fabrics and one background fabric; then as you progress through the blocks, build on these initial fabrics, their color ways and prints.

All of our Special Programs or Monthly Programs require a commitment from you for the length of the program. Signing up for a Block of the Month is the same as putting a quilt on "lay-away". You are making a commitment to purchase the entire set of patterns or kits. There are NO exceptions to this rule, so please don't ask if you can discontinue a program once you've joined in.
