Has anyone ever done a Block of the Month Quilt and actually completed it in the time allotment? Before I actually owned a shop I would only finish them on time if I was part of a class that was meeting and had to show the completed blocks from the month before. That was my motivator!! Now since owning a shop, I have to get the sample done so that I can sell these programs to my customers. So, I cram an entire year of block making into 2-3 weeks. I can tell you that this is not a fun way to do a Block of the Month! It is CRAZY!!!! I have brought this completely on myself, of course, because I have had the shop kit since February. I just had too many other quilts that I had to get done for the shop and I didn't have the fabric in the shop yet to sell, so onto the back burner it went. Well it's here now and it really is a pretty quilt for the Fall and if you start now you will have it done by Fall 2015. If you don't want to make a big quilt, this is a perfect program to make each block as a separate little quilt to keep or give as a gift. Here are a couple of the blocks (not quilted of course):
You can see a full picture of the quilt at www.quiltessentialsonline.com and you can order your All at Once Quilt also.
Hi Everyone! My name is Melanie Barrett and I have been quilting for 15 short years now. I worked in a quilt shop for 7 of those years and I owned a quilt shop for the other 8. Recently I decided to close the brick and mortar store and concentrate on online sales. My favorite types of quilts to make are small and mini size. I don't have a favorite fabric style, I like them all. I find that my tastes change as I grow up!
