I just signed up for the Fat Quarter Shop's 2010 Designer Block of the Month Club! This is my first time joining one of these, and I just could not say no. How could I? Kate Spain fabrics, 12 blocks, each one designed by one of my favorite designers! $9.99 a month includes shipping and $4.99 to sign up. Limited spots available. It starts this June and ends next May. You can buy the backing and also the border set separately.
The fabric is darling. The designers are really great: Fig Tree Quilts (Joanna Figueroa), Bonnie and Camille (as in Cotton Blossoms and Simple Abundance fabric lines), Me and My Sisters, Minick and Simpson, Pieces of My Heart (Sandy Gervais), Miss Rosie, the Pattern Basket, etc!!
I know some people might balk at $10 for a block and instructions, but I look at it as $10 a month is not hardly anything, and these are my favorite designers! I will have a very cool quilt by the end of May 2011. I am excited!
I may end up getting the border "finishing kit" later, but probably I will improvise the backing with something I already have.
