Tokens of Thyme Block of the Month
Tokens in Thyme is a 12 month block of the month done in wool. Each month you'll receive all the wool needed to complete the 6" block. Make the wall hanging or make each block into a smaller individual wall hanging to be displayed during that month - you choose! We'll start in January of 2018.

AS TO WHAT WE'RE UP TO! We've joined with 11 other quilt shops across the US to bring you something original and exciting! It will start in April and go through the end of May. We'll be doing it in the shop and online so everyone can play - stay tuned!
Flower Basket Quilt by Ruby Short McKim!
Eighty years ago Ruby Short McKim designed this block of the month and it was distributed in newspapers across the midwest. Now her granddaughter has reworked the patterns for modern day quilters! You choose how you want to do your flowers - applique by hand or machine, embroidery with crayons or not or wool applique! All will make a gorgeous 87" x 90" quilt! We'll provide the fabrics for the background - a pretty blue batik, the basket - a printed basket weave fabric a little darker than our samples - and a coordinating tone on tone for the basket contrast. You'll choose your flower method and we'll provide the fabric, the floss or the wool. Click here for a link to more details.
Crazy Quilt Block Of The Month
Indulge your passion for gorgeous fabrics - velvets, silks, gorgeous cottons - and for embellishing - beads, crystals, fancy threads! Join us for a 12 month journey into fancy stitches, threads, fabrics and more! Learn new techniques like puffing, pintucks, bobbin work - all on your sewing machine. Choose from two colorways - jewel tones in blues, greens & purples or pastels in greens, creams, pinks & blues.
This block of the month will consist of 12 blocks –14" square. You will decide whether you will add sashing & borders to make a bigger quilt or stitch the blocks together to make a traditional crazy quilt – no backing, no batting, no borders! Every one of us will end up with something different that reflects our personalities.
Each month you will receive 4-8 fabrics to make your block. Feel free to add fabrics from your stash! You will also receive a 15" square of muslin for your base & some kind of embellishment. A new technique will be covered each month – double needles, Texture Magic, cording, couching, a decorative thread – something to give your block a neat texture or look!
