2013 Events and Year End Fabric Sales!

Well I can't believe it, but 2012 is almost over! That means plans for 2013 are in the works and that also means shops are clearing out their inventories! So I wanted to first announce a fun event and second give you a little list of my sponsors current sales, they are quite wonderful!

Block of the Month

I am very excited to announce that I will be hosting a Skill Builder Block of the Month here at Pile O' Fabric for 2013. I just wanted to give you a little teaser today, and let you know signups and full details will be posted on the blog tomorrow. But, basically I have designed 20 blocks, some were classic designs I tweaked and some I designed from scratch. Each month we will make 2 blocks and we will be practicing different techniques such as Paper Piecing, Strip Piecing, English Paper Piecing, Curves Piecing, etc. AND each block will be quilted as we go, my goal with this is that we are able to practice our Free Motion skills without the bulk of a huge quilt. In November we will be adding borders to our quilts, and in December piecing the blocks using a binding piece method. See you tomorrow for more details!
