Quilters Trek is a new color-guided shopping adventure for quilters! The color theme this year is True Blue. This means the participating shops will be offering blocks made with predominantly blue fabric. This allows quilters to create quilts that are more pleasing and cohesive.
Each shop will create four 9" blocks that can be arrange in a row or as an 18" square.
Shops will have kits for sale, but the block pattern is free. If you cannot travel to a participating shop to purchase a kit, kits with the pattern will be sold by phone order and shipped to you.The free "stand alone" pattern will still be available in-store ONLY during the event.
The Quilted Crow's blocks arranged into an 18" square.
