Our next three BOMs are holiday-inspired.  Noel Sampler is a wallhanging with a traditional flair.  Piecing and applique combine to create a darling quilt measuring 42" x 52".  Program runs for 8 months and begins in February 2013.

 Need something super fun?  The Merry Christmas Quilt is the perfect choice.  This applique design features Santa, Mrs. Claus, and all of their friends wishing you a Merry Christmas!  We've had a lot of fun choosing fabrics for this quilt and they'll include lots of glitter, sparkles, and metallic accents!  Program begins in January and runs for 10 months.

Lastly, Peppermint Place is the newest design by The Quilt Company.  These birds are all ready for Christmas with their birdhouses decorated and their stockings ready for Santa!  The quilt is finished with a darling ribbon border.  Program begins in January and runs for 6 months.
