Buck-a-Block for 2016 is ready!

  2016 Buck-a-Block

Merry's Stitchins
2016 Buck-a-Block! 

This is our 9th or 10th year offering this program.  Here's the scoop...You stop in the shop each month, pay $1.00 and get two strips of fabric and a pattern to make a block. SIMPLE! This year's blocks are a GREAT deal, as they are 3"'re basically getting the fabric at half price!  Because we love our customers and want to see your smiling faces every month :-)

There are a few rules to our program:

1.  You must stop in each month to purchase your block.  You don't have to show us last months, you can stock pile them for 10 years from now if you'd like.  If for some reason you miss a month, it will cost you $3.00 per block to catch up. (WE DO have an online option -- where we will send you the blocks quarterly for $3 each month here)

2.  Each participant must pick up their own block each month (no group pick-ups by one person)

3.  You must purchase a pack of Thangles for the project.  If you've never tried this
method of piecing half-square triangles, you need to!  The pack costs $6 and has enough strips to complete the entire project.

4.  Decide on a finish kit.  We will have a finish kit for this project priced at $85.  This will complete your 12 blocks into a quilt that is 76x100.  The finish kit includes all the scrappy sashing, background and binding.  These kits will be available on a first come-first serve basis, so let us know soon!
