Have you received your Encyclopedia?!

Posted 12-06-2020 by | Posted in: New Products

If you purchased the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns during our pre-order period, you’ve probably gotten it by now (or it’s on the way!!). As soon as we received the books from the printer, it was all-hands-on-deck to get them packaged and shipped out! Due to the overwhelming demand, we sold out of the first printing! We placed another order right away, and those were delivered January 27. We’re packing and shipping as fast as we can so if you order now, your book will be on its way very soon! Now that things have settled down a little bit, we can take the time to actually enjoy a copy! Take a look!! The colored blocks are just so fun to look at!! Not to mention the gorgeous pictures of sewn blocks! It’s really the only Encyclopedia you’ll ever need!  So, if you’ve gotten your copy, leave a comment below
