Blocks of the Month



 
All of our Monthly Programs require a commitment from you for the length of the program. 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.

Reserve your spots now to insure the fabrics are available.  We have limited number of spots open. Call the shop for details.
10 Reasons To Try A BOM (Block-of-the-Month) Project:
 

If you've never tried a block-of-the-month quilting project, this is a great time to consider one!  BOM's, as they're called, are popular for lots of reasons, and we've listed them here for those who need a little extra encouragement!

  • The project is broken down into smaller, more attainable goals, so you'll enjoy a feeling of accomplishment each month.
  • Some shops offer pay-as-you-go pricing, so you can more easily budget for a major creative project.
  • You'll enjoy the camaraderie of those with similar quilting interests.
  • You can avoid the stress of last-minute marathons sessions at your machine.
  • It's another fun excuse to visit your favorite quilt shop on a regular basis!
  • Many BOM quilts are designed with a variety of block styles, so you can master different ones and expand your overall quilting knowledge.
  • By working gradually, you'll be able to control the usual sewing room clutter when working on a project all at once.  Blocks & cut pieces can be stored in clean pizza boxes, plastic zipper bags, or other methods.
  • The month-to-month pace of the project allows you to immerse yourself in each section and focus on it differently than you would when you make an entire quilt at once.
  • The chances of ending up with yet another UFO are lessened because you can see your progress - a BOM quilt project has a beginning, a middle and foreseeable end!
  • Marcus has lots more BOM's in the works for 2010 - at least one is sure to suit your style and your schedule!
