The ART EAST QUILTING CO Block of the Month Mystery Quilt Sew-Along is back!
Over the past few years, many animals and creatures have trended and become popular icons of our time. These guys have been seen in entertainment, on backpacks, on pins, in artwork, on walls, on t-shirts, even in our homes…you name it, their grasp on the zeitgeist is undeniable!
This year’s sew-along quilt is a celebration of these icons that have brought us so much joy in recent years. Whether these icons dwell on land, sea, or air, they have been captured on the #TRENDING QUILT to be enjoyed all in one very special handmade place!
This year’s sew-along quilt is bigger than ever, coming in at 60” x 70”, the perfect size for a good lap-quilt meant to be loved and enjoyed. The quilt features nine main blocks ranging from 8.5” x 14” to 25” x 25”. Each block will highlight a different skill or technique and will be sure to up the piecing game of even the most seasoned quilter. The blocks also increase in difficulty allowing a beginner piecer to ease into the process and grow!
Beginning September 1st, 2021, the pattern/instructions for a new block will be released on the 1st of every month.
This year get an exclusive invitation to join our monthly sew sessions live on Zoom with John as he builds the monthly block. Learn his best tricks and tips, the ins and outs of that month’s techniques and ask your burning quilty questions.
Every month a prize will be drawn from those who share their completed block either by email, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #TRENDINGQUILT
