Buck a Block 2013

Here is the information for our Thangles’ 2013 Buck a Block program:
We are continuing our popular Buck A Block program on January 2, 2013. This is in addition to the Saturday Sampler program. You can belong to one or the other, or to both.

You will purchase one block kit each month for $1.00 when you visit our shop (on any day during regular business hours). You’ll sign up ahead, and we’ll check your name off when you receive the block. If you can’t come in during the month, you must purchase the block kit for each of the month(s) you missed for $3.00 in order to be eligible for the $1.00 block kits. You can’t send someone else in to get your block for $1.00—they can pick your block up, but it will cost $3.00. We will be happy to send blocks to you as well. The price to send the blocks is $3.00 each, plus $1.50 postage. If you wish to purchase additional blocks, you can do so for $3.00 each. One package of 2” Thangles is enough to do all 12 blocks (Thangles package is $5.00).

The 8” block each month will feature two fabrics, our signature Moda burgundy print and cream. You will have a little left over each month so if you make a mistake one month, you can use leftovers from other months. You can finish your quilt however you want, but early in 2013 we will have finishing kits available to finish your quilt 53” by 67” as shown above at an additional charge. Later in the year, the same finishing fabrics might not be available, but we will have something else wonderful for you to use!

FAQs:
Can I make a different size quilt?
*  You can make additional blocks with coordinated fabrics to make a larger quilt, or purchase more of the same fabrics. You can finish the quilt any size you want, from a throw to king!.

Do I have to bring the finished block in to get the next block for $1.00?
*  Unlike our First Saturday Sampler, you don’t have to bring the blocks in to get the next one for $1.00. You just have to come in at least once each month to get the next block for $1.00. However, you are welcome to bring the blocks in, especially if you have any questions. We’re here to help you!

What if I want different colors?
*  You can purchase the kits and change the colors if you want (the patterns aren’t available separately). For the 12 block size, you would need one yard of each color you want to change.

I haven’t used Thangles before—is that a problem?
*  Each package of Thangles comes with complete instructions, and we also have a storyboard available so we can show you how to use the Thangles, step by step. And each month, the pattern will feature tips for using Thangles. By the end of the quilt, you’ll be as hooked as we are!

How do I get started?
*  Sign up starting Dec. 1! You can come in to the shop, or call, or e-mail. Come in once a month starting January 2, 2013 to get your block. You can pick it up during First Saturday, or any time that’s convenient for you.
This is the fabric used in the blocks. 
We also used it in our border.
