Little Quilts' Applique Block of the Month Begins: Nutcracker!

Little Quilts begins a Classic Nutcracker Applique Block of the Month pattern this very month; the first month's kit and pattern are available Saturday, February 9th, at Second Saturday Sampler. Our own Kathie West's sample above is on view in the shop. Patterns are $5.00 each and include a history about that particular Nutcracker and a recipe. The kit comes with the background, applique fabric, and pattern $10.00. There is an embellishment kit available for $10.95 that includes gold and silver floss, gold and black beads, a watch, coin, and key buttons. Our Nutcrackers have teeth cleverly made from a piano keyboard fabric. This fabric is 1/3 yd. at $3.50 and will make all your "teeth". The coordinating patchwork block pattern, see above, is $1.00. See website as well.
