                                     Introducing "The Circa 1880 Club"
                                            Dates and Pricing to follow in the December Newsletter

A Fabric and Club Program by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts

The Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt is a jaw-dropping beauty of fabric scrappiness. The quilt is a replica of a circa 1880 antique quilt Pam fell madly in love with, so much that she developed The Circa 1800 Club, allowing other quilters to recreate the antique quilt, too. Pam dedicated one hour each morning to making the blocks for the quilt which she now calls her "Hour-A-Day Heirloom!"

Pam soon realized the quilt blocks would be made more quickly, and give a scrappier effect if she traded completed blocks with friends, so she recruited seven quilting buddies. Each created seven identical blocks using strips sets, and then traded the blocks for the scrappiest assortment of blocks possible. Throughout the months, they constantly purchased more and more shirting prints and medium/dark prints to add to their strip collections! Pam's new collection of prints and shirtings, CIRCA PRAIRIE BASICS, provides the essential balance of color and pattern to guarantee success in making the quilt. Then, add your own choices to complete the quilt, making yours unique. It measures approximately 72" x 78"

The Circa 1880 Club is designed to bring quilters together in a special way -- In addition to finding the fabrics to replicate the quilt at your local quilt shop, you can also meet other quilters, trade blocks, learn hints and tricks on working with strip sets and small blocks, and participate in fun activities. The program will be supported by a private Facebook group, where Pam will interact directly with quilters, sharing blocks, tips and inspiration.

As an added benefit, Club participants receive six small quilt projects featuring the same Uneven Nine Patch blocks and all of the new CIRCA PRAIRIE BASICS fabrics designed especially for the Club. So, line up your best quilting buddies, and join the Club at your favorite local quilt shop -- it begins March 2019.
