Mary's Winter House

Mary's Winter House
January block 
The Quilter's Neighborhood

The Quilter's Neighborhood is the Free Block of the Month program at Sheep Camp Quilt Supply. The first four months will focus on houses: one house is decorated for a each season with a quilt block. The following four months will feature trees dressed for the season, and then another set of four designs to finish the row quilt. The blocks can also be used for table runners or pillows.

The program was supposed to begin in January, but the kits were not ready. On Saturday, I picked up both January and February's kits. The first kit (the pattern and enough fabric to make the block) was $10, and if the finished block is shown the following month, the next one free. If I do not finish the block in time, to stay in the program, I must purchase the next kit. By completing the blocks in the allotted time, I will have 12 blocks for the original cost of $10.

The shop offered a choice between the Original version (photograph of the shop display) or the Thimbleberries version. I chose Thimbleberries because I like the muted colors. Each block will measure 12 inches when assembled in the quilt top.


  1. That's a deal for someone like you who will no doubt finish each block on schedule. I like the seasonal theme of the blocks. They are going to make a very nice quilt.

  2. i love the snowy stone cottage quilt block....ahhhh it is amazing. That is a very good deal for 10 dollars I think. BUt I dont' sew, so is it?

  3. Think the 2nd one might be my favorite. Hey...how did you add your written signature to your blog like that? Nice touch

  4. Both of the blocks are beautiful :)
