Block of the Month

Begins Saturday, February 8, 2014

2nd Saturday of the Month

9:00am & 11:00am

Class Description:

Block of the Month meets once a month in the morning for one year, beginning in February.  Come in on the second Saturday of every month at 9:00am or 11:00am to receive fabrics and instructions for specific blocks.  Each session runs approximately 45 minutes.  Make one or more blocks each month before coming back to class the next month and receive the next set of fabric and instructions.

We also catch you up on Twin Cities Quilting’s new offerings, showing you the latest patterns, books and fabric available.  It’s a great way to become part of our community.  Each month we have show and tell, letting you see what others in your community have been creating.  It’s a fun, upbeat way to start your weekend.  Join with your quilting friends and have a year long plan to get together.  Many groups will meet for coffee, breakfast or lunch at one of the many close restaurants before or after class.

The class fee includes instructions and fabric that are passed out during the monthly class.  We give you approximately 3/8 yard every month (plenty of leftovers to create a scrappy quilt).  By purchasing a kit you’ll receive: 1) enough background fabric to make the background blocks, rails, and border, 2) all block framing fabric 3) all the inner and outer  fabric.

This collection is all the rage with modern quilters.  Caroline uses line art to create value changes and “keeps it simple”.  The designs tend to work a lot like solids.  The bolts represent some of pantone “colors of the year” and popular colors like mint, teal and grey.

Go to our shop page to see the full collection.

Class Benefits:

Most of the participants say the main reason they enroll in Block of the Month is to be part of a quilting community for a year.  Keeping up with friends and making new ones is an incentive to help finish this large project that spans one full calendar year. 

Many also love learning piecing techniques for new blocks and improving their quilting skills.  They improve their sense of color choices and have a greater understanding of coordinating color to create more dynamic quilts.

Keeping up with new fabric selections and book releases is also great fun.  It’s inspiration for many of the quilters in the room.  You’ll also get to hear about upcoming classes and new Twin Cities Quilting patterns and kits.
