Opening Today: New “Vintage Memories” BOM


Start with my favorite current fabric collection, Martinique by Three Sisters.


Add a beautiful new block of the month pattern series by Sherri K. Falls, “Vintage Memories.”





I just posted the “Vintage Memories” program to the website, click here.

As you can see, the descriptions are pretty detailed.  We know that joining a BOM is a commitment, we like to be organized, and we want our members to be well-informed.

If you’re interested in making this quilt, consider the three possibilities:

  • All-over kit.  Ships asap, with or without backing yardage. You’ll save $20, single shipping charge is less than monthly programs.
  • Individual BOM membership.  Ships over 5 months, so cost is nicely spaced out. It’s fun to get each fabric packet in the mail, and the project seems less overwhelming.
  • Group membership.  Groups of two or more save on the base cost of the kits, and combined shipping to a single address is more affordable.  Perfect for small sewing groups, quilt guilds, friends, family members, or neighbors.

Sherri was kind enough to lend us her finished “Vintage Memories” quilt, and it is simply beautiful.  The pattern is a perfect fit for the romantic elegance of the “Martinique” prints.

Stop in at the shop to check it out, or visit our booth at the Rapid City Quilt show.  But don’t wait too long.  Spots are limited, and we don’t want you to be disappointed.

Now, for some “eye candy”… Check out these pretty blocks!  You’ll make them in pairs. Each one seems prettier than the last. 


If you haven’t previously tried quilting “block-of-the-month” style, I highly recommend it.  Avoid  “piecing fatigue” as you try different techniques, work with a variety of fabrics, and experience a delightful sense of accomplishment.
