Top 10 Block Of the Month Programs in 2011

Our Block Of the Month programs and clubs are something we truly enjoy offering. Picking the fabrics for each pattern, cutting and collating, even packaging and shipping them out - we love every last detail of these programs! Over the last year we've had the pleasure of offering close to 30 programs at Shabby Fabrics. We thought we would take a look back at the most popular programs we have offered.

Top 10 Block Of the Month Programs in 2011

1. Blessings of Spring
Blessings of Spring has been a wonderful block of the month program for our customers. The signups for this program were tremendous and it was sold out in no time! This program was the first one offered in the series and the interest today from quilt shops and customers alike is still very strong.

2. Blessings of Summer
Blessings of Summer was the second quilt to be released in the Blessings Series. Releasing the program this last summer was perfect timing! Featuring the little red wagon full of flowers, and the Sunflowers too, it's the perfect summertime quilt! Full kits and pattern sets are still available for this quilt.

3. Poinsettias de Noel
Poinsettias de Noel was designed by Jennifer and was in very popular demand during the enrollment process. Each 12" perimeter block features piecing, while the center block features appliqué. It's the perfect additional to your home for the holidays!

4. Great Pumpkin
There's no better way than to celebrate Autumn with this vibrant 73" x 76" quilt featuring pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins! The program sold out in record time, but there are still patterns available separately.

5. Quilted Village
This quaint town settled around a village green is the perfect choice to add a touch of charm to your home! Quilt can be completed using either appliqué or paper foundation piecing - instructions for both are included. Add finishing touches with silk ribbon embroidery and traditional embroidery. The program is now sold out, but the pattern is still available for individual sale.

6. Farmhouse
Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts has designed this beautiful quilt featuring cottages and fruit. Quilt finishes to 61" x 61". Each block incorporates both piecing and appliqué. The program is no longer available for signup but the book can still be purchased.

7. Merry Merry Snowmen
Merry Merry Snowmen is a 10-month Block of the Month Program designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. This 62" x 66" quilt features plenty of jolly snowmen! Program begins in February 2012 and runs for ten months, ending in November 2012.

8. Little Red Barns
You can easily get swept away to the countryside every time you look at this quilt! Little Red Barns by The Quilt Company is a darling farm-themed quilt, complete with roosters, sheep, and, of course, little red barns.

9. Dolly Days
Reminisce about days gone by with this darling 46" x 54" paper doll-themed quilt! The Dolly Days heirloom quilt is the perfect gift for a daughter or granddaughter. This Block of the Month Program begins in February 2012 and ends in December 2012.

10. Sweetheart Houses
This program is one of the newest Shabby Fabrics exclusives and it's seen high enrollment - the program doesn't even begin until Summer of 2012! We can't wait to get this program started and we hope all of you are just as enchanted with the sweetness of this quilt like we are!
