SIMCOE SEW & QUILT CLUBS!

BLOCK PARTY PROGRAM 2018/19
The Filmore Quilt


The Filmore quilt is a modern sampler quilt with blocks designed in pairs: one traditional block and one modern twist on the same block, for a total of twelve 12” finished blocks. The blocks increase in difficulty as the program progresses to help quilters gain skills in basic units including four patches, half-square triangles, flying geese, v-blocks and more!

3 Layouts!
Choose from 3 different layouts!
- modern layout with lots of negative space
- traditional medallion layout with bonus 13th block
- "You Tried" layout that uses only 8 blocks set in an "on-point" layout.

12 Blocks
Get cutting, piecing, and pressing instructions for 12 different quilt blocks. These 12" blocks are designed in pairs, with a traditional version and modern twist for each set.

Here's how the SSQ Mystery Quilt Adventure works. The fabric requirements are given to you when you sign up for the Mystery Quilt Adventure.  Each month, you will come in and receive a set of instructions to complete a portion of the quilt.  It really is the fun is in completing a new step each month trying to envision the final outcome. 
You'll love this new mystery quilt, and this is a great opportunity to do some serious stash busting this year.   Dig through your stash for scraps or yardage in assorted light, medium and dark values as instructed in Fabric Requirements. Remember that mystery-quilt patterns emerge best when high-contrast fabric choices in color and/or value are made. Gather the total yardages listed. Now get ready to have some fun!
