Circa 1880 Club
by Pam Buda
We know you've been longing for a fabulous, super-scrappy, unique 1800s repro program & we've found it!
Pam Buda has created the Circa 1880 Club
as a way to make her incredible reproduction of an antique quilt.
The quilt is about 72" x 78" and features lots of small blocks. Don't be intimidated, though because Pam has created acrylic templates that will ensure success & she has developed a strip piecing method so you're not dealing with teeny-tiny individual pieces.
This is a 12 month program. It's specifically designed to allow you to pull in fabrics from your stash
Pam's original concept was for friends to swap blocks to maximize scrappiness and variation of fabrics. Because we know so many of our customers don't have access to a local shop where they can swap, we're offering an online version of this quilt. We're also launching a Homestead Hearth Block-of-the-Month page where you can chat with friends and arrange your own swap of blocks. Join the group here
Here's a close-up of the blocks.
In month 1, you'll receive 4 yards of the aged muslin that Pam selected for the setting triangles. And you'll receive 11 different prints from Pam's new Prairie Basics collection to get you started on blocks.
Then, over the next 11 months, you'll receive additional 1800s prints from a variety of manufacturers and designers to maximize your scrappy options. We're providing two options here--either a monthly starter set of additional strips for those who have an extensive stash of 1800s to pull from or a generous selection of assorted repros each month designed to provide enough fabric for your entire quilt. Pick the option that works best for you.
You'll need the pattern and acrylics to get started. The pattern and acrylics are ONLY available as part of the club purchase so they are shipped with Month 1.
Then, reserve your spot in the monthly program. If you have a stash and only want some inspiration fabrics each month, then Month 1 is $96.50 and Months 2-11 are $11.95 (the inspiration option). If you need more fabric to pull from for your monthly blocks, then Month 1 is $112.50 and months 2-11 are $27.95 (make it complete option). Sign up here.
As an added bonus, occasionally we will offer 6" strip rolls on our website so you can add to your selections.
It's going to be so much fun!As always, if you're already in a BOM, you're welcome to add this to your monthly shipments. This program begins in January 2019 and runs for 12 months.
