How exciting! It's time for me to tell you all about my new mystery button block of the month which I have given a French feel to through the design and also with its name :) I have to say that as I gaze at the quilt on the studio wall it is my favourite so far!
This year you will notice a slight price increase; over the years we have had many ladies request that the pattern be clearer and that the stitchery design not have something printed on the back which made it hard to work from. To do this we are printing a proper pattern on our pattern quality paper.
Things I can tell you:
The finsihed quilt size is 26" x 37", I have had fun using lots of yummy fabrics, threads and its all set off so nicely with our handpainted in Australia buttons. Each participating store has a swatch list of the fabrics that I used so they sould be able to help you with fabric selection.
Stores that are participating are listed here with a link to either their websites or their emails so be sure to rush to a store near you to sign up ready for a June 2013 start.
