Sampler of 2018

This year you'll go on a year long journey with the Sampler of 2018.  

This king size quilt features over 40 different quilt blocks, each having a fun twist.  

Infuse your own design and ideas using fabrics from your stash or a collection you love.

the Patchwork planner
& journal

Print the pages you need for keeping organized while you sew.  Customize your own quilt journal for those projects you've finished.

So many options, pages and layouts to choose from-allowing you to take full control and build a planner and journal you'll actually use and love.

scavenger hunt quilt

This year the IAQ is teaming up with the guest designers for a Scavenger Hunt quilt along.  

This is part mystery as the blocks from the designers are hidden until the month they are featured, and you'll have to hunt them down (we'll make it easy) before you can sew them.

Choose from two layouts and have fun designing your own quilt with the placement of the mystery blocks.  This quilt is perfect for using scraps or keeping it simple with two of your favorite colors.

ACCess all of this for just $120 year!

The Details:

"As a fairly new sewer/quilter and having never been involved with a quilt guild before, this group has been great with information sharing, growing me with new concepts such as the mini quilts, and stretching me by pushing for accuracy, i.e. the block swap. I love that the group is multi-national so ideas flow from everywhere."

"Good projects for both beginner and experienced quilters. Many of the ideas can be used in non-quilt projects but use quilting techniques."

"I love the Patchwork Posse Quilt Guild because we get to learn new things, hear from new designers and website owners. I most enjoy getting to see what others are working on and the variety of projects produced by many people."

"I don't know many friends that like to sew as much as I do. I was waiting to find a group that wasn't super expensive to join since I had never been part of one- I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it. I was so excited once I saw what the planned projects were, the names of guest designers I hadn't heard of before - I knew I had to sign up as soon as possible! I am beyond happy I joined this one!"
