Hi there! First, I need to tell you about Inspiring Stitches – it’s a brand new company that I’ve started with my really good friend Heather. I say really good friend, because that’s what you have to be to work together the way business owners do! We have repeatedly surprised ourselves by the way we think alike about a project or even a business decision that needs to be made. And we both have strengths that we can use to our fullest in this partnership that’s a win-win!
Together, as Inspiring Stitches
we have designed and created the Heartland Heritage block of the month project that is packaged as a calendar. Let me show you!
On the front page there’s a monthly calendar, and when you turn it around, there’s the pattern for that months block on the back. So each month you get a pretty, quilty calendar, and a fun block to make too!
Here’s a look at my finished quilt:
I had SO much fun making this quilt! You know I love a scrappy quilt, I pulled out all my favorite fabrics (including my own!) and happily stitched up this fun sampler. There’s 3-5 of each block to make each month to make the full quilt shown here, but we tell you exactly how many in the pattern every month. No need to guess.
This week we are offering a special to our loyal blog readers and friends – you! We really want to support the local quilt shops with this product, so we are only making the calendar available via the web for this week and it’s 30% off and includes a coloring sheet you can print and start making plans now. Pre-order you copy now, and be ready to sew with us all year long! The calendars will begin shipping in October which will give you plenty of time to shop for your project too!
Do you have a favorite block? I have a couple but would love to know yours!
I’m looking forward to sewing up this fun project with you next year.
Together, we hope to inspire you to stitch a little more everyday.
