KALEIDOSTAR BLOCK OF THE WEEK

I am starting a Block of the Week September 1 using this pattern and my Kaleidostars template sets (13″ and 17″). You will receive the Kaleidodstar template of your choice along with my seam guide, general piecing instructions, and fabric requirements on or around September 1.  You have time to practice the block using your own fabrics. The rest of the schedule is:

Week 2: 5 blocks on September 11
Week 3: 4 blocks on September 18
Week 4: 4 blocks on September 25
Week 5: 4 blocks on October 2
Week 6: 8 blocks on October 9
Week 7: Finishing directions on October 16
All directions will be emailed on a Friday at 9:00 A.M. CST.
This is a new concept for me. You can pick your own fabrics, your own size quilt, and the size block (13″ or 17″) or you can get a kit from me. All you have to do is purchase the template kit at:
The total cost of the 7 week BOW is $36 for the 17″ and $32 for the 13″ (plus shipping). If you wish to purchase a fabric kit from me I just need to know what size templates, what colors you want, and the size quilt you want to make and I will put fabrics together for your approval before kitting it. You will receive an invoice for your kit and after you pay for it I will ship it to you before the first instructions are posted. As an added incentive If you complete the quilt top (doesn’t have to be quilted) I will send you a copy of my Kaleidostars book FREE.  For those who like a challenge, I have added the 6-1/2″ kaleidostar template set to make a mini quilt!
I’d love for you to join me. Let’s have some fun!

To check to see if you are reading my home page, if you write in the comment box when checking out – 1/4″, I will include my 1/4″ seam guide with your order!!!
