Dearest Country Traditions Friends,
The dog days of summer are upon us. Whether you are sitting back and relaxing or rushing to get the "back to school" sales, remember to take some time out and enjoy the remainder of your summer. While the kids are getting their heads filled with important knowledge, we are allowed some quality time with our machines to finish up those quilt projects.

Lets finish off this summer with style. New fabric lines and home decor have hit the shelves and are ready for you to explore. We have many exciting events planned and can't wait for you to join us.. We need cutters, piecers and quilters for the Quilts of Valor Sew Day. Have fun sewing with your quilting pals while creating something special for our honorable veterans. If you love fabric as much as we do, then don't miss our "I Love Fabric Days" Sales Event. Join in on the great sales and search for the hidden treasure for your chance to win a $50 Country Traditions Shopping Spree.

Web Block of the Month

Wind Across The Prairie "Wind Across the Prairie"
2017's Web Sampler

Welcome to our 2017 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 2017 Internet Block of the Month, we are bringing you an exciting new sampler.
"Wind Across The Prairie" is not only regular style piecing, but can also be cut from the AccuQuilt GO! System. Be sure to check out 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.
