Block of the Month & Monthly Clubs

Please note that once a Block of the Month programs start it is closed to additional signups.




Join us on January 19th for the start of our new Saturday Sampler. Lallybroch Lane is a row quilt with three different sizes for you to select. We will be guiding you every other month on piecing a row of this quilt. There is no charge for this lecture class and the patterns for the rows will be distributed at each class meeting. You have to attend our Saturday Session to receive the patterns. This is a great scrap quilt and would also look stunning in patriotic fabrics.


Signups are required, so call the Shop and get on the list.


The Shop Sample of the quilt is the medium size (Twin 62” x 84”) and is hanging in the Shop.


January 19, 2019, continuing the third Saturday every other month thereafter, 10 am




Beginning January 2019!


Finished Size 88” x 98”

Thank you for your high level of interest in this beautiful quilt!

What a way to start off the New Year! Nancy Rink's newest Amish-inspired BOM design elements of a traditional Amish Trip Around The World with a unique center star and a variety of colorful blocks, all set against a black background. Nancy's careful color placement gives each block a beautiful floating, dimensional "twist." New colors were added to the vibrant Centennial Solids line for us to enjoy! Starting in January, 2019, you will receive each month all the fabrics and patterns you need to complete this magnificent quilt top over the course of 12 months as well as the binding for just $15 per month (plus shipping if you elect the mail out option)! What an affordable block of the month! It will be so much fun to work with such amazing colors as well!

We hope you will join us for the fun that is to come in the New Year!

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.

Please note that in general our BOM programs provide for the fabrics to complete the quilt top only. If backing is included in the program it will be expressly stated as so.
