BOM Online Signups Ready to Sign Up.png

Celebrate the seasons with our 12-block sampler quilts!  This year we will have three seasonal themes: Summer, Fall, & Winter.

We're taking sign-ups now for A Change of Seasons, but the first kit will be ready Monday, September 9 and Saturday, September 14. Buy the first kit before October 1 and it will be $3.50.



The bright batiks in this quilt will welcome warmer days.



Moda Grunge fabrics blend with newsprints for a rustic feel.



Red & white fabrics create a traditional and festive quilt for the holiday season.

What is Block Party.png

Here are the Prairie Point Block Party guidelines:  You may come in the shop on the second Monday or the second Saturday of each month.  The blocks will cost $3.50 for your first block and the following 11 months if you personally bring in your completed block (from the month before) on "Block Party day."  If for any reason you cannot come on Block Party day the block kit will cost $5.50.

At the end of the 12-month program, setting kits will be available for purchase.  The pictures and descriptions of the finished quilts will be shown a couple months before for your consideration and you may sign up for one at that time.

A mail order option is available for out-of-towners.  Call the shop for details: (913) 268-3333. 

Each month we will post pictures of the finished block right here in each of the three colorways offered.

Again, to get the special price of $3.50 on kits:

  • Come to the shop on Block Party Day (the second Saturday or the second Monday)

  • Come you yourself - not friend, spouse or anyone else

  • Have the block from the month before completed and with you

  • Only one kit each month qualifies for the $3.50 price

September — This is the first block of the year! I love the Jacob’s Ladder block; one of my favorites. And how easy is it! Four-patch and half-square triangles. Use your Bloc-Loc or Tucker Trimmer to square up the half-square triangle. Do you have a small ruler at your cutting table? It will help with accuracy in cutting small pieces for a single block at a time. Don’t use a 24” ruler— it is cumbersome and gets in the way. Accuracy in sewing is important in getting these blocks to be the right size. 12-1/2”
