The Fabric Garden LLC

Our newest Block of the Month is available for sign-up!   Once again, we are offering two colorways.  This year's theme is "Cabin" and "Cottage".     Cabin uses rich tones: tans, maroons and deep blues.  Cottage is a mix of peachy colors, tranquil greens & creams.  

How it works:
Each month you will receive a pattern and the fabrics to make that month's block.  The following month (starting on the first of the month), just bring in the prior month's completed block and you pick up that month's block kit.   In the end you will have twelve blocks!    We have a limited number of finishing kits available, using complementary fabrics.   See store for details!

Current Block of the Month Members:
Blocks for the 2013-2014 Block of the Month will be available for pickup until the end of April.  So if you haven't yet picked up your last blocks, come on in!
