The quilt features sampler blocks in a traditional setting for the quilt center. A stunning pieced border was added to finish the edge of the quilt in grand style!
Mrs. Miller's Apprentice fabric collection features a selection of light and blue prints in various shades to give sparkle to the quilt.
Each month you will journey to the mid-19th century and read a fictional diary written by Mrs. Miller as she tells the story of meeting young Ellie who just moved into the neighboring farm with her widower father. When Ellie shows interest in learning to piece quilt blocks, Mrs. Miller takes her under her wing, and not only teaches her to piece, but helps her learn many other housekeeping skills she will need to know. Every month you'll join them in creating a beautiful variety of sampler blocks and read the diary entries telling the story of their budding friendship.
The small blocks in and around the center star in the quilt center are those made by young Ellie as she learns to piece.
This will be a stunning quilt to add to your collection or as a wedding or holiday gift next year for someone special in your life. The quilt finishes at 77 x 89 and the cost is $20.75 per month. All participants in our block of the month will be able to purchase additional fabric from the collection at 25% off at the end of the year.
If you want to participate, please sign up asap as our last block of the month (Pieceful Pines) sold out very quickly. If you live out of town, we are happy to mail your monthly kit for the price of the postage. Let us know at email@example.com
