Prairie Quilt's finished project seen above. (Blue borders)
This year, to start the year off right, we have decided to give away a beautiful quilt pattern. The Women of the Bible quilt introduces several Biblical women and includes historical references and devotional reflection. My faith is a very important part of my life, so I love that I get to share it through this unique project. Working on this interesting and beautiful quilt will be an excellent opportunity for me to reflect on my faith and to learn more about the important women in the Bible. This experience has already been a big blessing in my life, and I hope it will be in yours as well.
We are so excited to be able to provide this entire 40 block pattern series to you absolutely FREE of cost! It includes all 40 blocks plus finishing instructions. We really want to make sure you don't miss out on any part of this journey, so we will promote the downloadable pattern via Facebook, our website: www.quiltnow.com and in our emails. Two block patterns will be available twice a month on the 1st and the 15th of the month for a total of four free blocks each month. You will have approximately two weeks to download the two patterns; after that, two different patterns will be available.
We want to make this process enjoyable in every possible way, so we will have block kits available for $6* if you want to make your quilt to replicate ours. However, we also encourage you to use your stash for this project. (If you're anything like me, I know you've got tons of fabric burning a hole in that secret hiding place you think no one knows about! It's practically begging you to get it out and use it for this special project!)
Women of the Bible is a big quilt, measuring 110" x 125" if you include all of the borders. Our quilt is a work in progress. I am piecing this quilt myself and am enjoying it immensely. I want to personally invite all of my readers to join me on this journey that begins January 1st, 2018.
I also want to encourage each of you join our secret Facebook group to share your progress and be inspired by a community of quilters when you decide to be a part of the Women of the Bible quilt experience!
The start of a new year is always an exciting time here at Prairie Quilt! For months now, we have been busy planning 2018 with you in mind. I am certain this year will be our best year yet, and I think you'll agree with me when you see all of the wonderful classes and events we have planned for you! For several years, our focus has been to encourage people to find their creativity and unleash their potential while having fun. This continues to be our goal in the present, as well as for the future.
*Kits come in sets of 2 at $6 per block. First come, first serve! Limited number of kits available. Must register to buy kits by March 1, 2018. THIS PURCHASE IS A 40 BLOCK COMMITMENT. There are 40 blocks in the Women of the Bible Quilt. Similar to our Block of the Month policy, when you register for our Women of the Bible Quilt Kits program, it is understood that you are registering for the entire program. We will abide by this policy and prepare a kit for you bimonthly with the understanding that you will remain in the program for the duration. We thank you for understanding. Patterns are not included in the purchase of kits but can be found for free at quiltnow.com under the Classes & Events tab in two week increments. On the 1st and 15th of each month, two free patterns will be released on the website, on Facebook and via email. Only two free patterns will be available at a time, so make sure to get each set before the next comes out and the other expires!
For 21 years I was the owner of Prairie Quilt shop in Hennessey, Oklahoma. On October 4, 2022 I sold the business leaving me free to once again spark my creativity! WooHoo!!
