Traverse Block of the Month
The Traverse Block of the Month, available in Multi and Neutral, is a take on traditional row by row quilts, but with a decidedly modern look and a brilliant display of colors. Each row demonstrates a wide range of techniques that will build the skills of novice quilters and be a fun play day for the experts. Techniques include strip piecing, curves, and a new way to paper piece! This quilt is made up of 10 different blocks & sashing strips, both pieced into 72” (finished width) rows. Be sure to join us in 2022 for the Traverse BOM, a satisfying adventure in technicolor!
