Signups are now closed for Two Bucks a Block

FOR 2021: We are doing a Thangles program featuring two 6″ blocks each month.  The size of the Thangles used is 2″.  For the fabric,  we have chosen Edyta Sitar’s Blue Skies collection, which has been reprinted recently.

Starting January 2, 2021, you will purchase one block kit each month for $2.00 when you visit our shop (on any day during regular business hours). You’ll sign up ahead, and we’ll check your name off when you receive the block. If you can’t come in during the month, you must purchase the block kit for each of the month(s) you missed for $3.00 in order to be eligible for the $2.00 block kits.  Signups will close at the end of day on March 6.

You can’t send someone else in to get your block for $2.00—they can pick your block up, but it will cost $3.00. We will be happy to send blocks to you as well. The price to send the blocks is $3.00 each, plus $1.50 postage. If you wish to purchase additional blocks, you can do so for $3.00 each. One package of 2” Thangles is enough to do all 24 blocks (Thangles package is $6.00).

You will do two 6” block each month with a blue from Edyta Sitar’s Blue Skies fabric plus the background each month. The two blocks will be opposite of each other. You will have a little left over each month so if you make a mistake one month, you can use leftovers from other months. You can also use leftovers for the cornerstones as we did. You can finish your quilt however you want, but we will have a finishing option available to finish your quilt 67” by 94”.  Finishing kit is $105.95.

FAQs:

Can I make a different size quilt?
You can make additional blocks with coordinated fabrics to make a larger quilt, or purchase more kits for $3.00 each, or purchase more of the same fabrics. You can finish the quilt any size you want, from a throw to queen.

Do I have to bring the finished block in to get the next block for $2.00?
Unlike our First Saturday Sampler, you don’t have to bring the blocks in to get the next one for $2.00. You just have to come in at least once each month to get the next block for $2.00. However, you are welcome to bring the blocks in, especially if you have any questions. We’re here to help you!

I haven’t used Thangles before—is that a problem?
Each package of Thangles comes with complete instructions, and each month, the pattern will feature tips for using Thangles. By the end of the quilt, you’ll be as hooked as we are!

How do I get started?
Sign up now! You can come in to the shop, or call, or e-mail. Come in once a month starting January 2, 2021 to get your block. You can pick it up during First Saturday, or any time that’s convenient for you.
