New Block of the Month!
Mrs. Miller’s Apprentice
2019–2020 Block of the Month
3rd Saturdays of Each Month ● Starts May 18, 2019
by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts, featuring Marcus Fabrics®
Journey to the mid-19th century and read Mrs. Miller’s diary, as she tells the story of meeting young Ellie who just moved into the neighboring farm with her widower father. When Ellie shows interest in learning to piece quilt blocks, Mrs. Miller takes Ellie under her wing, and not only teaches her to piece, but helps her learn many other housekeeping skills she will need to know.
Every month, you’ll join them in creating a beautiful variety of sampler blocks and read diary entries telling the story of their growing friendship.
Indigo blue and light quilts were so very popular in the 19th century and are still a classic today! The quilt features several gorgeous Indigo blue prints, as well as many other shades of blue, and a blend of lovely light prints that make the sampler blocks sparkle! It’s sure to be a treasured quilt in your collection.
This 12-month program begins Saturday, May 18, 2019 and includes monthly patterns, a 4 ½” Easy Angle Ruler, and all the fabric to complete the 77” x 89” pieced top. Directions are also included for completing the Storyteller Bonus Quilt (24” x 24”) using fabric leftover from the Mrs. Miller’s Apprentice quilt.
