Block of the Month (BOM)
Sign up for the $12.95 kit on our website or in person. This selection is the BATIK version. Note - For BATIK, you can pick out a Hoffman Bali Batik Star Bundle in the shop or view selections on the website. That Star Bundle will be assigned to your quilt. You can type in your star bundle name in the notes section at check out.
Each monthly block kit will include a Fat Quarter from the Batik star bundle + 2 or 3 additional Fat Quarters in coordinating colors.
Cannot change your colorway selection after the program begins.
Pick up block #1 pattern and fabric kit in our shop, in person, between 10 am - 1 pm on the first Saturday of every month.
Mark your calendars! Feb. 5th, March 5th, April 2nd, May 7th, June 4th, July 2nd (2 kits in July!), Aug. 6th, Sept. 3rd, Oct. 1st, Nov. 5th, Dec. 3rd (2 kits - your 13th block included!)
We all search for a good deal and a Baker’s Dozen quilt sampler gives you just that! Receive 13 sweet sampler blocks (we’re also including 13 delicious cookie recipes in our BOM!) These simple nine-patch blocks will use different combinations of half-square triangles and quarter-square triangles (finishing at 14”). Each block is wrapped in a neutral border and surrounded with sashing and cornerstones. This quilt finishes at approximately 97” square.
This quilt will run through December 2022. Like many popular BOM programs, you pay for the first block and when you complete the block, bring it in to receive the next block FREE (and “sew on and sew on!”) until you complete block #12. BONUS - You even receive a 13th block - “a baker’s dozen” with this special Cookie Sampler! What fun!
Frequently asked questions - FAQ
What happens if I miss your first Saturday event one month? Just pay $12.95 to get back into the Block of the Month program and we’ll give you the next pattern and kit in the series. Life gets busy! If you forget that day or need to be out of town, no worries! The $12.95 fee is small - we’ll get you back into the BOM program right away! Our gift to participants is a free kit each month when we’re able to see customers at the shop and celebrate their ongoing progress. It’s so motivating to be a part of a community of quilters working on a special project! You may pick up your missed pattern/kit anytime that month. We prefer an online payment of $12.95. Please write in the notes again - specify Batik or Blue & White. We’ll prep your kit and have it ready for you to jump right back in! You can also select postage payment and we’ll mail your kit if you cannot get into the shop.
What if I am injured or ill and cannot come into the shop? You can let us know before the first Saturday event by email at email@example.com AND include a photo of your completed block (prefer a pic of you if possible). Email us by 10 am on the first Saturday showing us the completed block to be on time and receive the next block pattern/kit for free.
What happens if I join months after your BOM has started? We’d still love to have you join! Be sure to sign up online, pick Batik or Blue & White (type in notes), and contact Jennifer at the shop to get started at (317) 326-3115 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will go back to “block 1” and have our staff make up kits you may have missed so you’re caught up - contact us to make arrangements. If you join three months into the program, sign up three times ($12.95 x 3) to get caught up. Once you are on track, remember to attend first Saturdays, between 10 am - 1 pm, and bring your completed block to show us! You’ll receive a FREE kit/pattern for the next block. If you join 6 months into the program, sign up six times online ($12.95 x 6), etc. You’re welcome to jump in at any time!
