A Mother's Gift

This stunning quilt made by Barbara Butcher Snyder in the 1800s is now available as a pattern & kit!


Featuring 4 ½” blocks set together with fabulous double pink sashing, this quilt is a work of art. We’re thrilled that we can bring you monthly kits to make your own masterpiece.

To start you’ll need the pattern which retails for $24.95. There is also an EQ Companion CD available so you can print out templates, foundations or whatever piecing method you prefer. (Note: You do need to own Electric Quilt version 5.0 or higher in order to use the CD.) The CD is only available when you purchase the pattern and it retails for $22.95.

The quilt finishes at 81” x 91”. We’ll be using 1800s reproduction prints closely following the original color plan so your quilt looks as much like the original as possible.

There are 72 blocks in the quilt joined together with pieced sashing and finished with pieced borders. 

Since these are smaller blocks and we know everyone wants to put their best effort into them, we’re kitting this so you receive fabric to make a total of 4 blocks per month for each of 18 months. Then, we’ll finish off the sashing, borders and binding over an additional 3 months, making this a 21 month program.

The first kits will ship in February, 2011. Reserve your spot in this program now!  

Monthly kits are just $10.95.


All of our Special Programs or Monthly Programs require a commitment from you for the length of the program. Signing up for a Block of the Month is the same as putting a "quilt" on lay-away. You are making a commitment to purchase the entire set of patterns or kits. You have the choice of prepaying for the entire BOM or paying on a monthly basis. There are NO exceptions to this rule, so please don't ask if you can discontinue a program once you've joined in.
