As with similar programs offered at The Quilt Works Inc, there are some useful things you’ll want to know about the Block of the Month program to determine whether it’s right for you. Let’s take a closer look at some of the questions you might have.
What is the Block of the Month program?
The Block of the Month program at The Quilt Works Inc is an informal program in which we provide free monthly block patterns for you to quilt. You can also purchase a kit when you pick up the monthly pattern, which will include necessary fabrics for that particular block. Once the program has been completed, we’ll provide instructions for setting the blocks and make any necessary fabrics available for purchase.
What is this year’s quilt?
For our 2015 Block of the Month program, which started on October 1, our team selected Brushstrokes, a 66” x 66” design by Megan Downer, which incorporates a variety of fabrics from STUDIO-e’s collection of the same name. We’ve developed a program in which participants will complete two blocks per month, with the exception of one month in which you’ll complete three blocks.
How much does it cost, and what is provided?
Our Block of the Month program is great for those quilting on a budget, as monthly kits cost $6 each. Patterns are free during the month in which they are introduced, but can be purchased later. Ask our team for more details in the event that you miss a month. Finally, the setting kit, which will include fabrics for the sashing and borders, will be available at the end of the program for a cost to be determined.
What are some of the advantages of this program?
When you participate in the Block of the Month program at The Quilt Works Inc, you have the opportunity to work with fine fabrics and materials on a project that’s geared toward independent
work. It’s a great program for those inclined to work on their own time and at their own paces— just don’t forget to pick up the patterns and kits on time! And of course, visiting The Quilt
Works Inc on a regular basis also gives you the chance to stock up on quilting supplies and notions in Albuquerque, NM whenever it’s convenient for you.
Finally, participating in the Block of the Month program also gives you access to our expert team of quilters, who have more than three centuries of quilting experience. If you run into any sort of problem, chances are pretty good that we can help you solve it! We look forward to helping you complete your quilt, and hope you’ll join us in our Block of the Month program.
