FAQ-on sampler quilt
What if I do not wish to continue this block a month?
You are not committed; but if you miss quite a few months and wish to buy missed blocks you may need to check with us to hold them.
You will get 12- 12 ½” blocks. The size of your quilt will be determined by the way you set your blocks. We have an example of a completed lap quilt using the blocks. During the year, we will try to have more ideas.
What if I do not understand your directions or have questions on the block?
We are here to help you through. You can call of e-mail me at or just come by and we will be glad to help you. You can bring your block in and make it here.
Do I wash?
This BOM was not designed for fabrics to be prewashed. If you wish to wash: just hand wash and lay out to dry. You can use Retain if you are concerned about bleeding or fading. I recommend that you wash the quilt with color grabbers the first time.
If I am late or miss the date what do I do?
You need to pay $5.00 and pick up a block in time to get it made before the next meeting. (plus, state sales tax)
If I wait until the next month and why is the cost $10.00?
If you wait until the next meeting you have missed a block ($5.00 cost) and you do not have the previous month block completed ($5.00 cost) a total of $10.00 to pick up two blocks. Remember others came by and picked the block they missed Paid $5.00. (plus state sales tax)
Can a friend pick up my block?
Yes, for a cost of $5.00 any one can pick up your block for you?
What if I do not have enough fabric?
If we have made an error in packaging your fabrics or in the directions, we will replace needed fabrics. You can substitute a fabric from your stash. I recommend collecting some prints now. You make wish to make extra blocks or you may not like one of the fabrics we furnish. It can cost you to have to come in for mistakes made by either us or you.
Why do I have to pay $5.00 if I miss the meeting?
We have budgeted this as advertisement. To justify the cost, we need to have you come into the shop each month. I do understand we all have tragedies and accidents that are beyond our control. I do have sympathy but if I change the rules for one I must weight each excuse. If everyone understands this is worth the cost and just pays for the blocks they miss, it is fair for all.
