There are three options for selecting the pattern and your fabrics:
OPTION 1: Purchase an Irish Thistle (coming July 2019) pattern and choose your own fabrics from your stash or as desired.
At 57” x 57”, you will be able to add C and D Borders of your choice at that time to increase the size of the project if desired. The price of each border option is separate and depends on which ones you choose. The borders will need to be added in Quiltster. Choose the Irish Thistle Queen template to get started planning, but please understand you will only be able to use fabrics in the event for now. Choose fabrics close to yours to play with the quilt. Upon publication, you will be able to add your own fabrics as desired.
Please prepare your kit by cutting the strips 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. We have prepared one kit options that will be available for purchase as well, from Quilter’s Market if you require a kit!
OPTION 2: Select one of the Courtyard Fountain Mixer kits, exclusive to this event! There are 17 options that have been created for you to choose from. You will have a Quiltster account for six months (from sign up) as part of your event and will need to use it to purchase your project if you choose one of these options.
We have not finalized all kit pricing at this time, but to give you an idea, your kit will include the following:
- A pattern, ranging from $32.50 to $80, depending on the size and number of papers required.
- A kit with fabrics included, pre-cut for you to the strip size, (Small patterns will range from $175, with larger designs being as much as $400).
- A 17% kit cutting fee will be included so shop and Quiltworx staff can prepare your kit for the workshop.
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! If you haven’t received it already, any day (or upon sign-up!) you’ll receive a 6 month subscription to Quiltster, allowing you the opportunity to mix and match blocks and fabrics in 3 different quilt sizes to achieve your perfectly unique quilt! You may use Quiltster, or contact Judel Niemeyer for an additional design fee ($25/design) to help you create your perfect quilt.
Again, we have not finalized kit pricing at this time, but the range will be similar to that noted above and depend on the selection of blocks and fabrics for your pattern.
All kits will be based on a yardage price of $12.99 per yard, regular price, however, kits purchased for this event will be discounted at 10%! If you are interested in backing and binding, you will have the option to purchase this at the time of kit purchase. Backing and binding purchased with the kit will be discounted 25%. All sales will be subject to applicable sales tax in the state of Indiana. Kit orders will not be placed until after May 15th when we finalize yardage, so have fun designing in the meantime and stay tuned for more information on kit purchases.
