Fabrics & Pattern from Sarah Maxwell
Block of the Month Program starting January 15th

This is a unique approach to a block of the month quilt design, featuring a sampler style variety of blocks. It combines these more familiar elements with a unique setting that appears to weave ribbons of color in and out around the featured blocks. We have selected a light background.

This is a 12-month program. The quilt size is approximately 85” x 96”.

Each month you will receive (either pick up at the Shop or mail out) the pattern and fabrics to make the framing blocks and the setting blocks.

Cost: $25 per month + shipping if mail out.

As we start to get into the Holiday spirit & with this early cold spell, we are reminded of those in need. For this year’s Annual Holiday Giving Project, we have learned of a wonderful, generous family that is working hard to care for many. Miss Carly’s is an organization that has opened their home in the heart of our city to those in need in order to connect with people personally and build relationships. No forms. No alienation. They serve those who have fallen between the cracks and burned all their bridges. They provide daily meals and unconditional love with a side of sass!

To assist this wonderful organization, we are asking for you help with a donation. We are suggesting donating gift cards that Miss Carly can use with the population she is serving. Suggested gift cards, in various donation levels, from the following places would be of great benefit to them: Dollar General, McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Subway, Walgreens, gas card, City Bus Passes. Another suggested gift card choice would be larger amount cards to assist with the food items they weekly purchase from places like Walmart, Sam’s Club, and GFS.

Learn more about Miss Carly’s mission by visiting her Facebook Page Miss Carly’s or her website

Donations will be collected through December 17th.

For your donation of these items to this project you will receive a Special Coupon from QGS.
