Looking Ahead to 2011 - Part 1

I know it's been a long time since I blogged.  This fall has been moving along at a whirlwind pace, and I can't believe there's only 10 more days left in 2010!!!  Much of the past couple of months has been spent on planning fun ideas and events for the new year, and I hope to spend the next few days sharing what's coming up.  We are so excited - and hope you will be too!

Ya'll know we are just a tad bit crazy, right?  We do work at the Asylum, right?  Well, here's a way you can jump on the crazy train right along with us....we're starting a Fundamentals Block of the Week on January 3rd!  Yes, you read that right - a BLOCK OF THE WEEK!  Below are samples of the first 4 weeks....


Here's how it will work.  Each Monday morning, we will release a new block kit.  Each block kit will contain your pattern and fabrics to make one 7-1/2" finished block for $3.  We are featuring the Kaffe Fassett Collective (Kaffe, Brandon, and Phillip) in our fabric selections along with a lovely Moda Bella Solid to tie them all together.  The program is written so that over time you will continue to learn new piecing skills, hence the name "Fundamentals".  If you are a new quilter, this program is perfect for you!  If you don't pick up your block by Saturday at 5pm, the price for the block goes up to $3.75.  You can also sign up to have the blocks regularly mailed to you - every 4 weeks for $15 plus shipping.  We'll even give you a pocket card so that you can keep track of your blocks!

There will be 52 blocks issued during 2011.  We will show the setting for this quilt in early December, and you can place orders for a setting kit then, if you wish.

So, do you want to play along with us?  Give us a call if you have any additional questions or to sign up!

Is the solid shown the one that will be in the kits?

Yes. It's Bella Solid (Willow). Believe it or not, it blends beautifully with Kaffe & Friends.

Can I get my first 3 blocks tomorrow? I missed the start date.

Interested.....until I read that it's $15 for 4 weeks PLUS $15 shipping. As I live 250+ miles from you, 4 wk price is $3 higher, plus shipping!

Dear Anonymous...it is $15 plus shipping. Not $15 shipping. QA always tries to use the most economical shipping method.
