Welcome to our 2016 Internet Block-of-the-Month Program. This is our gift to you for being such a loyal reader of our "As the Bobbin Winds" Newsletter. As you know, the sampler block patterns for this quilt are only made available to the loyal readers of the "As the Bobbin Winds" Email Newsletter.

Over the 12-Month course, you will receive directions on how to construct (12) different blocks. They will start out easy and work their way up in difficulty as we progress throughout the year. In the last month, you will receive the directions for the final layout and finishing of this beautiful Web Sampler Quilt.
For the 2016 Internet Block of the Month, we are bringing you an exciting new sampler that is designed to work with the Accuquilt Go! Qubes. The Accuquilt Qubes come in (4) different block sizes. 12" Finished, 9" Finished, 8" Finished and 6" Finished Blocks. So you can also choose how big or small of a project you wish to make! Be watching for other coloring options to be posted on our Facebook Page! This quilt would look great in any fabric coloring from Jo Morton to Batiks and anything in between! Let your imagination be your guide!
