Coming Soon - Latimer Farms Block of the Month

This beautiful quilt was designed by Red Crinoline Quilts. Based on motifs from antique fabric prints, Paula Barnes' LATIMER FARMS collection highlights navy and leathery brown prints accented with gold, faded denim blue, olive, black and a touch of rusty red. The prints are beautifully anchored by one of Paula's favorite border stripes. The quilt features 36 6" blocks, framed with a border which creates the illusion of an Irish chain. The quilt finishes at 101" x 101".

This program includes the pattern and the fabric for the quilt top and binding. Coordinating wide backing fabric (above) is also available separately.  Shown below are some of the fabrics from the project. 

The block of the month will begin in January 2016 and will run for 12 months.  Register here if you would like to pre-order this Latimer Farms project - you will not be charged until the fabrics are here and the project is ready to ship, but we will reserve the project for you!

We also still have a limited number of Hampton Ridge kits (or block of the month) available.  This is also a Red Crinoline Quilts project with beautiful reproduction fabrics from the 1800's designed by Paula Barnes for Marcus Brothers.  Paula and Mary Ellen Robison of Red Crinoline Quilt designed this stunning quilt featuring forty one 7 1/2"blocks.  The simple layout of this quilt shows off the variety of the prints and the colors create sampler-style blocks that are varied and cohesive. And a beautiful border stripe is featured on the border.

And along a similar line, we have also have a limited number of Mill Girls kits (or block of the month) available.  This beautiful quilt was designed by Nancy Rink for Marcus Brothers and features "The Mill Girls" fabric collection designed by Judie Rothermel. Judie worked with the archivist from Old Sturbridge Village to create a collection authentic of the time period. The fabrics provide a historically accurate palette of tans and browns blended with burgundy, blue, and green taken from the period of the mid 1800s. Each of the ten block patterns in the Mill Girls quilt is named after a young girl who worked in the textile mills in Lowell, Massachusetts, and each is accompanied by excerpts from a letter she has written.  This is truly a beautiful quilt.  Here is a close up picture of the border fabric:
