Home Sweet Home - $10 Block of the Month

We had a blast on our $10 Block of the Month Road Trip and we finally made it home! The year brought us around the USA, with each block representing a state. We had so much fun every month coming up with factoids about each "destination" and dressing up!

Congratulations to everyone who finished!! We have a few suggestions if you're wondering how to put yours together: 
  • For the bright version, cut sashing at 2.5" and the border at 3".
  • We set the neutral version on point. This requires you to make one additional block (13 total). We cut the sashing at 2.5". The corner triangles are 15.5" squares cut in half and the side triangles are a 20" square cut in quarters.

What better way to back your quilt than with this wonderful state fabric?! We have it in stock at StitchCraft.

For anyone in the recently-completed $10 BOM, here are close ups of Block 12:

Our next Ten Buck Block of the Month starts March 9, 2013 and will meet the second Saturday of each month. The design of the quilt will be a surprise to you - it is a sampler style quilt for confident beginners (and up!). Here's how it works - you pay $10 to start and if you keep up with us each month, that's all you pay! If you fall behind, you can pay $10 each time you miss a month. This year is going to be SWEET!!!! Sign up today by calling us at (561) 447-4147 or stopping by StitchCraft!

Your Best Machine Quilting

Do you wish you could quilt your own quilts rather than quilt by checkbook?  Do you wish you could make your machine quilting better?  Come join us at StitchCraft where Baby Lock educator Joan Clemons will be available to answer questions and share her wealth of quilting knowledge (and samples!)
Joan will have a hands-on lecture/demo on Friday and Saturday at 1:00.  No cost to attend - only an interest in quilting and sewing!  (and as you can see, there is financing available this Valentines/Presidents weekend!)  You'll fall in love with our machines!
