2020 Summer Blocks of the Week!

 

 

General Information on how the 2020 Summer blocks of the Week work:2020 Summer Blocks of the Week/LIsa Bognean Top US Quilt Blogger

HERE IS ALL INFO YOU NEED, THAT JESSICA HAS PUT TOGETHER FOR OUR 2020 SUMMER BLOCKS OF THE WEEK…ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS SHOULD BE COVERED HERE…PLEASE READ IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH...I KNOW READING STINKS BUT IT HELPS US SAVE TIME WITH QUESTIONS THAT WE HAVE ALREADY ANSWERED.  Also keep in mind, these are photos and the actual projects look, much, much better in real life…Lisa.

 

         A lot of you have done one of our Summer Blocks of the Week with us in the past, we ask all of you to read over the information carefully in case it has changed from the last time that you did this program with us.  Like most of our Summer Blocks of the Week this will be a weekly commitment from all of you, we will start shipping the Summer Block of the Week, the week of June 8.  This year our EPP and our Pieced SBOW will be a 14 Week commitment and our Wool one will be a 15 Week commitment.  When you sign up for your Sunmer Block of the Week, you will need to ask yourself if you would like to pay monthly or pay in full.

         If you are paying monthly, we will be charging you as soon as you sign up for your first set of blocks, after that your card will be charged on the 5th of each of the following months for the duration of the program.  This allows us to start shipping your blocks on the first of every month- instead of having to wait until a certain day when our billing cycle completes.  It may look like it is going to charge for more, but it is not.

         If you would like to pay in full, you will be charged at the time of purchase as well, and this will be for all of the blocks and shipping. If you are paying in full, you will receive a FREE week as our “Thank You” for only having to run your credit card one time! We have a Pricing section for each project for you to see what each week’s price is so that you can fully understand our pricing of the Summer Blocks of the Week.  Weekly paying is ONLY for those that are picking up their blocks in our Shops.

All pricing is without tax.  If you live in Wisconsin, there will be tax added on to your SBOW and items purchased to go along with the SBOW.

The sooner you order the easier it is for us to know what to cut/package for…If a bunch of  you sign up close to the first ship date we may not have your block ready and will ship with the next one.  I am sure you can understand why this may cause an issue…

Pieced SBOW-LakeHouse or Homestead scrappy

Our Pieced SBOW is a little different than what we have done in the past.  This year you have 2 different color options to choose from.  We have our Lake House Scrappy and our Homestead Scrappy.  Our Lake House Scrappy will be a “controlled” scrappy quilt, meaning it will only be using the colors that you see in the pictures.  Our Homestead Scrappy is not going to shy a way from color; we are going to use every color under the rainbow using reproduction fabrics.  It will use more of the whites and creams for the Lights in the blocks, versus using more of the tans.  Both of these quilts will finish up at around 72”x81

Pricing: Shipping included

Per Week: $21 ($18.00 (Pick up only)+ $3.00 Shipping) Paying Monthly: $98.00 (For 3 months)

Pay In Full: $273.00 (one week FREE)

5.5 yards Backing Fabric: $56.20  

Thread option: $10.20

What do you receive each week?

Each week you will receive 12-lights and 12-dark fabrics in your kit, and will make 5-6 blocks.  Which means you will be doing a total of 72-9” Finished blocks! Each week will feature a different “setting” square in the middle of the block.  Meaning one week it could be a star that you do in the middle of the block, and the following week you might do a churn dash in the middle of the block. There will be NO Finishing Kit needed for this quilt; you will have everything you need to finish this quilt minus the Backing Fabric, as that is optional.

Some things to consider:

We did not do a Supply Kit for you this year because if you have done our Pieced SBOW in the past a lot of the products we recommended are products we recommend now.  So take a peek at our Related Products at the bottom of the Pieced SBOW page and see if there is anything there that you don’t have and would like to use.

We encourage you to use the Itty Bitty Eighths Ruler in either the 3”x7” or the 6”x6”, they are perfect for cutting your pieces.  The Charming 5”x15” Eighths Ruler is also a great one to use when you are sub cutting your larger piece of fabric.  We also have the NEW Magic Pins available, they are amazing to use with heat resistant comfortable grip handles.

Backing Fabric:

You are going to need 5.5 yards of backing fabric to complete your quilt. If you would like to purchase it from us we are extending a 30% discount on your backing fabric, which means that instead of paying $66.00 plus shipping, you will only be charged $56.20 and that includes shipping! Just let us know in the comment section what color you would like, and we will pick out an amazing one for you! Most of you know how much I (Jessica) love picking out backing fabric for you.

Interconnected- our English paper pieced

2020 Summer Blocks of the Week/LIsa Bognean Top US Quilt Blogger
Interconnected, English Paper Piecing, stitched by Joanne Blank

Interconnected is our hand pieced English Paper Pieced project for this Summers Block of the Week.  Joanne used the same color palette that Lisa used in her Lake House Scrappy Pieced Quilt.  Your quilt will finish approximately 72”x87”.  This is a perfect size for you to make 2 smaller quilts out of this project if you would like to.  This quilt is based off of one of Lisa’s antique quilts.  We actually had to have templates specially made up for us for this quilt.  The pieces are much larger than they have been in the past and we felt that this quilt was also different than anything we have ever done. 

Pricing: includes shipping

Paying Weekly: $18.00  

         ($15.00 (Pick up only)+ $3.00 shipping)

Pay Monthly: $84.00 (for 3 months)

Pay In Full: $234.00 (1 week FREE)

5.5 yards Backing Fabric:  $56.20

Papers: $60.00

What do you receive each week:

Each week you will receive the fabrics to create a portion of the quilt.  The fabric quantities may vary from week to week, because this is a scrappy quilt we might be using some of our many scraps that we have here at the warehouse to put into the kits.  You will not need a Finishing Kit for the quilt; you will receive all the fabrics needed to create the top of the quilt and binding.  If you would like to order the backing fabric, there will be an option to do that as well. Because of the template/papers being a specially produced for us, I am sorry but we will not be able to tell you the size of the pieces.  Thank you for understanding. 

Some things to consider:

Supply Kits:

As I said in the Pieced SBOW I do not have a supply kit for you.  We have some suggestions that will help you in your EPP journey for this quilt.

         *Small Wonder Clips (10 pack) $6.95

         *Sewline Glue Refills probably 5-6 packs $3.95/pk

         *Sewline Glue Pen $7.95

         *Jeana Kimball’s Foxglove Cottage Milliners Needles $3.60

         *Aurifil Gray 5004 for all piecing $14.00

So take a peek at our Related Products at the bottom of the Interconnected SBOW page and see if there is anything there that you don’t have and would like to use.

Wool-Summer block of the Week

2020 Summer Blocks of the Week/LIsa Bognean Top US Quilt Blogger
Live a Thankful LIfe, Wool Applique on Moda Flannel, Stitched by Lisa Bongean

This year Lisa is finally doing a companion quilt to her Summer Primitive Garden.  Live a Thankful Life is the Autumn version of A Primitive Garden. We have talked a lot about doing this quilt over the past couple years and we are finally going to make it happen!  The blocks will be done on Lisa’s Moda Flannels, some are from older lines, and a few are from Lisa’s New Farmhouse Flannels II line coming out in July.       

Pricing: including shipping

Paying Weekly: $35.00

         ($32.00(Pick up only)+ $3.00 shipping)

Pay Monthly: $131.25 (For 4 Months)

         Yes, if you divide $131.25 by 4 weeks it comes to be $32.75 per week.  But you have one payment that is for 4 weeks, but you are only getting 3 weeks of shipments because of it being 15 weeks long. Hope that makes sense.

Pay In Full: $490.00 (1 week FREE)

5.5 yards Backing Fabric:  $ 63.62

 Thread Kit:

         With case:  $152.00      

         With out case: $147.00

Some things to consider:

Once again there is no Supply Kit put together this year.  This is all a la carte for you to pick and choose what you need.

  • Needle Threader $2.00
  • Fray Check $4.50
  • Needles #22, Embellishment, #24  $6.00 each
  • SAS2 Lite packages
  • White Clover Pen $6.75
  • Featherweight Heat N Bond

Take a peak at our Related Products at the bottom of Live A Thankful Life page and see if there is anything you would like to use.

Thread Kit:

This is what we are calling a “starter” thread kit. This will actually be most of the threads that you will use, but because we are not completely finished with the quilt, we just don’t know if there will be a few that Lisa will add.. You can order your Threads Kits as a complete set, which we advise as you will receive a better price, but if you so choose to purchase them separately you can do so.  A list of threads used is posted below.  You do have the option to have this put into a thread case for $152.00 or to have it with out a case for $147.00

Will there be a Freebie this year included with your 2020 Summer Blocks of the Week?

2020 Summer Blocks of the Week/LIsa Bognean Top US Quilt Blogger
Peek at our 2020 FREEBIE BLOCKS, stitched by Lisa Bongean

We always have a Freebie! This year if you are participating in one of our SBOWs, you will automatically be getting one of our Freebies with your blocks each week. There will be the same amount of blocks in your Freebie no matter if you are doing a 14 or a 15-week program.  Another words, if you are in the 15-week program you might not get a Freebie in the last week.  We will post a thread kit as soon as we have all that info…So this is an awesome bonus!

If you are not participating in our SBOW this year but still would like to receive the Freebie, you will need to make a purchase of $30.00 or more, each week in store or online that the SBOW is running.  If you miss one they can be purchased for $5.00 a piece.

 

International and Canadian Orders

In order to keep your shipping costs down when doing the Summer Blocks of the Week, we have to do your shipping a little different.  We will ship your first block out the first week of the program.  After that we will hold your blocks for a 4-week time period, and ship on that fourth week.  This allows us to have just enough money in postage to cover our cost to ship it to you.   If you would like to receive yours weekly, please call the Shop and we would be happy to help you, but please know that it costs us about $10.00 to ship you a package each week. Which means an additional $30.00 would be needed from you each month to get your SBOW out to you weekly.

Facebook Group

 We will be having a Facebook Group again this year. This group is absolutely amazing to keep you motivated, to learn new tricks and to see exclusive teachings from Lisa.  This year we are planning a few Facebook Live posts for everyone to learn from, which will be a lot of fun!  PLEASE make sure that you first are friends with ME, Jessica Holz on Facebook; from there you will need to send me a message to let me know that you are in the SBOW and would like to be added into the group.  I will then add you into the Group and you are ready to start participating and asking questions if you have them.  You NEED to be friends with me as it is a CLOSED/PRIVATE group, I am only able to add you if you are my friend.

Also if you avoid facebook for whatever reason…know that you can have an account that you only use for your quilting…it is possible, don’t miss out on this fabulous tool for learning and communication.

Want to know when your package ships?

UPSP Informed Delivery By USPS is available for you.  You just need to sign up online with the USPS if you would like to be informed as to when your packages will be arriving, instead of having to call or email us.  This helps us to focus on the shipping your orders/SBOW/BOM as quickly and efficiently as possible. Once we put it into USPS you will be informed of its journey to you and when you can expect it in your mailbox. This will be for all letters and packages that you have coming to you; this is not a service through us.  This is just an option for you if you want to get notifications about your package, if you do not want this service you DO NOT “have” to have it.

I hope you can decide….it isn’t easy all of our 2020 Summer Blocks of the Week are amazing…We are giving away a $100 shop gift certificate to someone who orders a Summer Block of the Week by midnight 5/17/2020!
