Quilter’s General Store Hotflash!





Stargazing Aged Muslins Block of the Month designed by Krisanne Watkins of Quail Valley Quilts featuring Aged Muslins from Marcus Fabrics.

Krisanne's design was inspired by color of these beautiful Marcus Aged Muslin fabrics. She has also named each of the star blocks after a celestial body with names like Pegasus, Vega and Orion. The rich saturated hues of this hand dyed fabric collection ensure any quilt block can become a Star.

This BOM will begin in November 2018 and run for 12 months at a cost of $24.99 per month. Kits will include patterns, all fabrics needed to complete the quilt top, and the Aged Muslin backing and binding. The finished quilt is approximately 92" x 92" quilt.

Sign up for this great project before October 20 & get the first month fabric kit FREE!
