Block of the Month

Begins Saturday, February 11, 2017

2nd Saturday of the Month

9:00am or 11:00am

Class Description:

Block of the Month meets the second Saturday of every month at 9:00am or 11:00am for one year, beginning in February.  Come in to receive fabric and instructions for each month’s assigned block.  Each session runs approximately 45 minutes.  Make one or more blocks each month before coming back to class the next month and receiving 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 meet for coffee, breakfast or lunch at one of the many close restaurants before or after class.

The class fee includes fabric and block instructions for twelve months.

We've simplified the 2017 Block of the Month:

One size. Three colorways.  No finishing kit.

Size: 64" x 78" (add a border if you'd like a twin size)

Colorways:  Black Forest, Spring Garden or Tweet

This quilt was so fun to create for you!  Shannon and I had fun making the blocks and then I put my best effort into creating a layout that shows off every block.  It was a spectacular challenge.  I'm so happy with the results!  We couldn't have done it without Elizabeth's wiz-bang job of writing the block instructions and organizing everything for you to create this quilt in a year-long program.

Gather a group of friends and meet them once a month at Twin Cities Quilting to catch up, review the next month's block and see what’s new at the store.

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 participants enjoy 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.

Order Today!  One of Three Ways:

Online, by phone - 651.340.8263, or drop by the store to see the quilt and fabric palettes in person.

Choose from Three Color Palettes:

The quilt shown is our "Black Forest" colorway named after our theme fabric.  Some fabrics do all the talking and some fabrics provide a supporting cast.  In a quilt like this it's important that not every fabric wants to be the star of the show.  We've created great contrast from black to white.  WOW what a quilt!

Our second palette is called "Spring Garden".  We'll be making this colorway along with the class participants.  It's main colors are inspired by the main floral fabric (pictured below).  It evokes the fresh, new colors of Spring.

Out third colorway is "Tweet".  Not only does it use an ever popular bird print it is also comprised of earth tones.  This colorway is also less busy.  It uses more solid-like fabrics.

Choose the colorway that inspires you most!  All of the colorways use a ton of Moda Grunge and small prints.
