The other day, Becky and I were trying to decide what to do for the next block party quilt.  I could see the lights click on in her eyes as she became excited about an idea she had for the quilt.  She practically ran home and started the quilt.

Actually, we decided to do two quilts.  The Little Hen will be done in storybook hues of teal, yellow, red and green.  (See some of the fabrics here.) We will have photos available as the quilt progresses.  Little Hen will be the first Saturday of each month beginning Feb. 1 and will go for 6 months.

The quilt Becky ran home to start will be called Traditions.  Here is a photo of the first block.

We will be using fabrics from A French Courtyard  collection from Riley Blake(See them here.)

The center of another block....


This quilt is different than any other block party we have done.  We will actually be doing the same blocks each month with different fabrics from the collection and a different word stitched into the  center of the block.  We will pass out the kits on the third Saturday of each month.  There is a total of 12 blocks in the quilt.  We will do two blocks each month so the quilt will still be done in 6 months.

We are now accepting registration for both block party quilts.  The Traditions block party will have a $25.00 sign up fee and $6.00 per month.  This price will include all twelve blocks.  We will have finishing kits available for an additional amount.

Little Hen will be a $20.00 sign up fee and $5.00 per month.  Finishing kits will be available for an additional charge. 

Pick your favorite or sign up for both!
