Description SIZE(S) Extended Information

Of all the vintage quilts that I have acquired over the years or the ones that I have made by my own hand, none are as versatile and as classic as my red and cream ones. Whether old or brand new, there is something about a red and cream quilt that is timeless, classic and so easy to decorate with in almost any decorating style! My personal collection of red and cream quilts comes out every year the day after Thanksgiving for Christmas and stays through the end of February for Valentine's celebrating [actually for Christmas, I add in a few red, green and cream quilts as well and then simply take them out at the end of December].

So for this year's Christmas quilt, we decided to go all red and cream with no other color! This is a mystery and we will not see the finished product until the end but here is some info: The color scheme will be as shown here in the photo and all of these fabrics will be used. The background will be Bella Ivory. We will likely add in a few more fabrics as the year progresses. The style of the quilt will be a medallion of sorts, with a large star in the middle, surrounded by the remaining blocks. All the blocs will be traditional, classic blocks, many of them directly taken from our vintage sampler inspirations. We are so excited for this one and can't wait to finish it next October, have it quilted in November and have it ready to be out by Christmas 2017. If you keep up each month, you will also have a beautiful family heirloom to share by next Christmas!

For 10 months, each month we will send you a packet of fabric as well as instructions to make the blocks for that month. The first month we will be making the center star and for the remaining months, we will be added the rest of the needed blocks. Program will include all of the monthly instructions as well as binding. Backing will be sold separately.

The cost is $22.50 plus shipping per month for 10 months. The program and membership fee can not be cancelled. Paypal cannot be used for block of the month programs. If you order anything else along with this order, it will be separated out and shipped now.

U.S. shipping will be $6.75 per month.

Canada shipping will be $24.50 per month.

International shipping will be $34.00 per month.

Please note that if the US Postal Service changes their prices during the year, our prices will need to reflect those changes.
