There are three options for selecting the pattern and your fabrics:
OPTION 1: Purchase a Prairie Star ($77.00) or Rain Forest Blossoms ($75.00) pattern, and choose your own fabrics from your stash or as desired. Patterns will not be available for purchase until December 2018. We request you purchase the December 2018 Prairie Star pattern publication as it will be easiest to follow along in class if you have this version of the pattern.
Please prepare your kit prior to class by cutting your fabrics up to the point where you would begin cutting with a Template Layout Sheet (you do not need to cut apart the layout sheets prior to class). This way, you will be prepared to begin working on your project at the steps where the rest of the students will begin.
If you are not having the shop cut your kit, you can still use Quiltster to plan your design! This will help you get yardage, strip cutting information, and your fabric planning underway as soon as today! The patterns can be purchased when available, through Quiltworx. Please let us know by responding to this email if this is your choice so we can contact you when the patterns are ready.
If you would like to make either of the above quilts in the original fabrics and have the shop prepare the kit, this is an option as well. To order a kit (Ordering opens November 7th) for Prairie Star or Rain Forest Blossoms, log into Quiltster, click on the Enter Quiltworx University Tucson 2019, then select the color you want to order. You will then select Buy Now and process an order accordingly. We will bring all your project needs to Tucson in February!
OPTION 2: Select one of the Meadow Mixer Kits, exclusive to this event! There are 13 options that have been created for you to choose from that showcase the different blocks featured for this event, a variety of fabrics, and the endless possible arrangements for this project. You will still have a Quiltster account available to you through mid-March as part of your event, but you will not need to use it to prepare your project if you’ve chosen one of these options. You will, however, need to use it to purchase the design.
Starting on November 7th, you will be able to click on the project you want to purchase, save it to your account, then click Buy Now and purchase the kit, which will be cut and prepared for you when you come to Quiltworx University in February!
OPTION 3: Create your own completely customized quilt, where you pick the combination of blocks for your quilt and your favorite fabric collections from the list shown below!
Quiltster allows you to mix and match blocks and fabrics in 5 different quilt sizes to achieve your perfectly unique quilt! Want a custom quilt, but you want to have someone help? There is also time to contact Judel Niemeyer for an additional design fee ($25/design) to help you create your perfect quilt. She will have you call into Quiltworx to pay your fee, then begin working with you to create a quilt you love!
Again, on November 7th, you will receive an email from us letting you know that ordering is available. You will click on your prepared project, click the Buy Now, and be able to purchase your kit!
