It's Not a Square

What began as a year-long block exchange* between Carol Hopkins and her quilting friends has developed into a beautiful and unique 12-Month BOM quilt called "It's Not a Square." The finished quilt measures 57" x 78" and features the "American Swatch Book" fabrics by Judy Rothermel that she developed specifically for this program.

This kit includes all the fabric for your quilt top and binding. There are also twelve booklets that coordinate the fabric in the kit with specific blocks from the required Carol Hopkins book, The 4" x 5" Quilt Block Anthology: 182 Blocks for Reproduction Fabrics .

The Anthology is not included in the kit, but if you do not have a copy, it can be purchased with the kit for $23.00 (a 20% discount).  The book has 110 more blocks than the 72 used in the quilt, so it has added value for those who prefer to make a larqger quilt, several different quilts or additional projects. At the end of the program all 72 blocks are set together to make a sampler quilt of 4" x 5" blocks (as pictured).

If choosing to make this quilt with the Block of theMonth program, the payments are as follows:

Month One - $55.00 (this includes all the fabrics used for the blocks because they need to be delivered together...you use almost all of them in the six blocks created in Month One.)

Months Two through Eleven -  $11.00/month (Each month you receive a new booklet)  

MonthTwelve - $25.00 (includes the last booklet and the finishing fabrics)

Also available all-at-once for $179.00

*As Carol explains the origins of the Anthology: "The unique feature of these blocks was that they weren't square - they finished at 4" x 5". We recreated some classic blocks and also designed more than 50 original blocks that no one has ever seen before. We ended up with 182 different blocks. We then developed a book containing instructions for making all of the blocks."

You can purchase this delightful quilt in several ways:

  • All-at-once for $75.00

Conestoga Crossing

Join us in our Pioneer Journey to make the Conestoga Crossing! Travel back in time to the Oregon Trail, exploring the strong desire of the pioneers to settle the West and create homes rich in history.

The featured fabric collection is Pam Buda’s “Conestoga Crossing”. The colors are some of Pam Buda’s favorites.... deep reds, greens, black, dusty golds, sparked with blue. All are reproduction prints created from antique quilts of the 1800’s. Log Cabin chain blocks surround the large red star quilt center in a stunning frame made by an array of basket blocks. The block size is 12". The quilt finishes at 95" x 112".

Each month, for 12 months, you’ll receive a pattern and fabrics for that month's section of the quilt. Each block includes historical stories about the Oregon Trail and life in the 1800's…stories about preparing for the journey, what is was really like to walk the trail, some of the stops along the way, and arriving at the final destination....the Land Claims office. The final month includes the finishing materials and binding. A Bonus pattern is included to use any fabrics left over at the end.

The program begins now, at the end of January, with the first block, and blocks will be available on the 30th of each consecutive month.

Cost: $28.00/month for 12 months
          All-at-once: $299.00


NOTE: With each of our Block of the Month programs, we keep your credit card number on file for you, and your card will be charged on the last day of the month.  You are committing to purchasing the monthly kits for the entire quilt.  Work at your own pace! All of our BOM participants also receive support and assistance from us whenever needed.

Vintage Rouge

This Vintage Rouge quilt, stylized from the Vintage Rogue fabric by Faye Burgess for Marcus Fabrics, features a classic larger floral with coordinating small-scale motifs.  The combination of gently aged tones of red and sage green with antique beige, offers a look that works all year long and well into the holiday season.   

This quilt features Faye's popular Strip-It™ pre-printed stripe layout, which sets the stage as the centerpiece for Vicki Bellino's (Bloom Creek)  creative piecing. With this gorgeous quilt, Vicki introduces English paper piecing and embroidery, and these two classic techniques, combined with appliqué, will become one of your most cherised heirlooms for generations to come.  With 'Love', 'Joy,' 'Peace', and 'Hope' stitched in the medallions, this quilt will also be a favorite holiday quilt every year. 

The finished quilt measures 78" x 78". 

This is a 6-month BOM at $31.50 for each of the 6 installments ~ or ~ you can purchase it all-at-once for $175.00.
