You asked for it and we heard you… and we're bringing this popular program back again. If you're new to the way we work, it goes like this: The first month (January) you purchase a kit for the first block of the quilt for $5. Bring it back - completed - the next month and receive the kit for the next block for free! There are a few other easy rules, but that's it in a nutshell. We've got the quilt planned, the fabric ordered, and it'll be up in the shop for you to see by the first of the year. This is always a fun program for newbie’s and experienced quilters alike, and truth be told, we missed it. So, you asked for it…you got it!
