"Countdown to Christmas" is our first 'Block of the Month' program for Quilted Thimble Cottage. It is a sampler-style quilt with blocks designed by several Moda fabric designers. Each block offered a unique way to show off Sweetwater's Countdown to Christmas
fabric line, with its array of traditional colors and patterns. Our program offered folks the opportunity to quilt through 12 blocks in 4 months. Each person was encouraged to complete 3 of the 12 blocks per month, and if they did they would get an entry into a drawing to have their project quilted for free
! We had 8 folks entered into the drawing, with 30 entries. We used this list, along with a random number generator to select our winner.
Congratulations to Joan McClure!
We have the chance to see her beautiful quilt top after she was able to complete it at a recent quilt camp, and it is gorgeous! Everyone else that participated in the Block of the Month program will receive 10% off their project's quilting!
Thanks to everyone that participated - you all are so talented and ambitious! We have another exciting program starting in January. It is a Mystery Block of the Month that will run through 2012. We will offer you a choice of two colorways, and reveal each block along the way! Stay tuned for more news on that next month!
Block of the Month,
Countdown to Christmas,
