Saturday Sampler is held on the second Saturday of each month except for January when it will be held on the first Saturday of the month. Sign up before January 1st to reserve your space; after January 1st we cannot guarantee availability of fabrics.
You may choose from the following session times: 8:30AM, 9:30AM, 10:30AM, or 11:30. We ask that you attend the same session time throughout the year. Our appliqué quilt is from the book Christmas Favorites from Art to Heart; the signup fee is $6.00. Purchase of the book from Prairie Quilt is required.
The pieced quilt this year is from the book Kaleidoscope Symphony done in Garden of Enchantment fabric by Maywood. This quilt may be done with the block centers made in the stack and whack method or a fussy cut method. To sign up for the stack and whack method the price will be $18 which includes 1 ¾ yards of fabric and the first block; to sign up for the fussy cut method the price is $12 which includes one yard of fabric and the first block.
Here is how it works: Bring your completed block from the previous month to receive the current block free. Each month we show the next month’s block and give a 15 minute presentation. Conditions: You may make both quilts but you only get ONE free kit per month. You must pay $6.00 for the additional kit. For this reason, we can only offer each person one kit; you cannot buy multiple kits of blocks. To get your free kit, you MUST come to Prairie Quilt with your finished block at the class time you signed up for and sit through the demonstration time. There are NO exceptions! This is not a mail out Block of the Month. You are expected to be present for at least half of the sessions. If you can't come one Saturday, you may buy that month's kit for $6.00 while supply lasts. Bring your completed block to the next month's class and you will receive the next month's kit free. A door prize will be given away at each session; you must bring your completed block to be eligible for the drawing and you must be present to win.
There will be a "special discount" item announced the morning of each session, which will be available ONLY to participants and ONLY on meeting day. After twelve sessions, you should have twelve finished blocks and be on your way to a beautiful quilt!! Finishing kit sold separately.
