Welcome to Quilt Blocks Garden Trellis! The new block of the month style program at JoAnn stores started in June! The fabrics – beautiful florals, crisp white, trendy navy and mint, accents of pink and purple. The design – columns of blocks set on point, separated by stripes and modern flowers.
To make this 86” X 90” quilt, you’ll need 12 block kits and one Setting Kit. The Setting Kit ‘sets’ the blocks together. In this design. It has precut triangles to set the columns of blocks on point, the stripe and floral columns, and the inner and outer borders.
Something special about this year’s quilt is that these borders are cut in one piece. We’ve had customers asking for 1-piece borders, so Janet, our product manager worked with our cutting partners until she was satisfied that every piece would be perfect. I hope you’ll let us know if you like this change.
We also want to let you know a change JoAnn’s is making to the Quilt Blocks program: there will be one quilt at a time. I hope this gives you a chance to finish your project before you start another. Our Quilt Blocks team is happy with this. To develop three quilts a year, design over 30 new original fabrics, write 39 instructions, test, print, cut and ship kept us very busy!
The limited edition kits, Quilt Block Quarters and yardage are expected to be in the stores until January. Visit Joann.com for kits, or the backing and binding sets too. We hope you’ll stop in soon to get started on your own Garden Trellis quilt! Also, don’t forget you can win all the blocks, setting kit and binding in this month’s giveaway!
