Have ya heard about Block Stock yet? It’s gonna be all the rage pretty soon…
The premise is simple. Make a purchase at any participating retailer and get free instructions for a 12″ finished quilt block. You also get entered for a chance at their prize valued at least $75.00. Each retailer chooses their own block according to the current theme. This year the theme is “Let me introduce you…” We were supposed to create a 12″ finished block introducing ourselves to the quilting world. Here’s my block…
I started with the Yankee Puzzle block and gave it a Purple Moose twist using the colors of our logo. Since we are smack dab in the center of New England, I’m calling it Yankee Moose. Since all the retailers are making 12″ blocks you can mix and match them for sampler quilts or use just one repeated for a quilt.
For our prize I put together a very useful tool caddy filled with gadgets & gizmos or $75.00 off one of our retreats in 2016 or 2017, winner’s choice!
