Introducing The Mercantile Block of the Month
Mercantile Block of the Month

We can’t keep it a secret any longer! We’re excited to share that we’re offering our very first Block of the Month! Mercantile, designed by one of our all-time-favorites, Kristin Gassway is sewn up in General Store, our newest assortment of 1930s feedsack-style fabrics. Every print comes from an authentic vintage feedsack, meticulously recolored and scaled into this charming group of quilting cottons.

Block of the Month…what’s that?

Each month we’ll ship you all the fabric you need to make a portion of the Mercantile quilt. You will be shipped four packages, one each in May, June, July, and August. At the end of four months, you’ve got a finished quilt top!

How much does it cost?

The Mercantile BOM (that’s Block of the Month for short!) costs $35 per month, and ships to you at no additional cost.

Who is Kristin Gassaway?

Kristin has been designing quilt patterns for 13 years. She now has almost 200 patterns under her belt, and hers are some of the most popular patterns we’ve carried to date! A fresh take on the vintage sampler, Mercantile showcases Kristin’s signature flair for taking the bones of classic blocks and re-imagining them in lively, modern interpretations. Kristin is known for her love of star blocks, so naturally she included quite a few in Mercantile!

Okay, I’m in! Where do I sign up?

  11. Marlene walker - September 6, 2019

    I am at the end of the mercantile block of the month. I have been very careful and not had problems until now. I have ran out of the navy fabric and also the light blue gingham. I would be happy to pay for a couple fat quarters if I could get some.
