Halloween Figs Block of the Month
You may recall this beautiful line of Halloween fabrics from last year. We now have them back in time for your to complete this gorgeous project just in time for this year's Halloween! We are offering this both as a kit and a block of the month. 

The quilt features a variety of block sizes and styles. The program will be supported by cutting and piecing videos by Marilyn to help you along your way. Marilyn will demonstrate the use of the “Wing Clipper”, the “Bloc Loc” and “Folded Corner Clipper” rulers to help make your blocks look wonderful.  There are no classes for this project.  The quilt finishes at 66” x 72”

The BOM will start May 3rd run for 6-months (thru October). The total BOM fee is $235.98 with a $50 deposit at the time of sign-up and $30.99 a month at the start for 6 months with a credit card on file. There are no cancellations. The fee includes the fabric for the top, binding and the pattern. It does not include the backing or any applicable shipping. Shipping fee will be calculated separately for each shipment to minimize charges based on size, shape, and destination address. A credit card number must be provided to keep on file.  The full kit is separately available at a 15% discount for $198.95 with a $50 deposit at the time of sign-up.
