Join the Party!

We are thrilled to be participating in another party with our fellow quilt shops and quilt lovers! The year 2013 has been an exciting one, and this year's Patchwork Party is proving to be just as exciting--all 12 of the blocks are LASER-CUT this year! You'll be able to take your block directly from the mailbox to the sewing machine!

If you're a newcomer to the Patchwork Party, here's how it works: Twelve online quilt shops each designed a block which is available for purchase exclusively at their shop. Visit all 12 shops to collect the unique blocks. You can visit Patchwork Party's website for the list of shops participating this year. Our block features a gray and red star framed by blue and green. The red and cream corners are a final touch that make the whole block reminiscent of the kaleidoscopes from your youth.

Each shop also designed a complete quilt using the 12 different blocks. Our very own Jennifer Bosworth designed Kaleidoscope Breeze--a gorgeous, queen-sized quilt that showcases the 12 blocks interspersed with other blocks made from the Rendezvous fabric collection. Our finishing kit includes the pattern and the remainder of the fabrics necessary for the front of the quilt.

We also offer the backing for Kaleidoscope Breeze and an Oops Kit containing one Fat Eighth of each of the 23 fabrics used in the blocks this year. Pick up an Oops Kit if you know that accidents and mistakes happen or if you want to make a coordinating pillow or wall hanging.

If you've never participated in a Patchwork Party before, now is the time! We know you're going to love the accuracy and ease of the laser-cut blocks. Instead of worrying about making all the right cuts, you'll be able to jump right into piecing your blocks. Rendezvous by Kensington Studio for Quilting Treasures is the perfect collection to showcase the wide variety of blocks this year and Kaleidoscope Breeze makes an eye-catching statement!

The blocks are only available until January 31, 2014 so start shop-hopping today and collect all twelve! And don't forget to order your finishing kit at Shabby Fabrics too! For more information, visit Patchwork Party's website here.

We invite you to share your progress with other party-goers. Send your pictures to socialmedia@shabbyfabrics.com to be included in our Patchwork Party 2013 board on Pinterest! We'll be sure to include your name when adding your picture to Pinterest.

Enjoy the party!
