To All Our Wonderful Friends,
Although it's not officially Summer yet, we want to make sure to
get a jump start on it this year, after the brutal Winter we endured.
As many of us are busy working in the garden, sewing at our machines,
or finalizing those Summer travel plans, we just have a few exciting
announcements to make. Every Summer seems to bring more and more
excitement to everyone that visits Country Caboose Quilts, and this
Summer is surely not any different!
There are three sets of dates this Summer, that you will want to
make sure are marked on your calendar! The first dates you'll want to
make sure you mark down are June 30 through July 6. With the 4th of
July falling on Friday this year, it's a week that is certain to be
busy, but that's not why we recommend marking down. That week will be
the start of our first quarterly Block of the Week program! If your
asking yourself, what happened to Block of the Month? No worries, this
is just a fun little twist we put on the usual block programs we
The next set of dates you'll want to take note of are July 1
through September 2. These are the start and end dates of this years
Row by Row Experience! This shop hop is sure to be a fun time for all,
and has it's own unique twist. At last count, The Row by Row
Experience shop hop consists of over 1,250 Quilt Shops, in 34 states
and Ontario! Each participating shop you visit will give you a free
pattern for the row their shop designed.
Finally, the last set of dates you'll want to keep an eye on are
August 1 through August 17. These are the dates for the 8th Annual
Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop! With some great changes being made to this
year's hop, as well as unique fabric line produced by Clothworks, it is
sure to be a great event! Of course, the Upper Mid Minnesota section
has done it again with our amazing section prizes and incentives!
We hope to see you soon,
Kim & Travis
Block of the Week
Make sure you don't miss out on this great new quarterly
program! Some of us just need that little bit of a push to be
productive(I know I'm one of those people). What better way to do that
than committing to 1 block a week! Our Block of the Week program is a quarterly program, with each quarter being a
With each quarter, brings a new design, but also, each quarter offers multiple color waves of the same quilt blocks. Picture above you will see "Block #1" for the three color waves offered the first session. From the gorgeous "Nature Walk" made from batiks with a focus on the green, blues, and browns to the "Black, White, & Bright" for those that want something a little more bold. We are also offering a third color wave, focusing on the ever popular line from Moda Fabrics, by Kansas Troubles!
How about this… a shop hop type event with no fees, no passports and all
summer to play? Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive
a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to
create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling
throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and
have fun collecting rows!
With over 1,250 participating shops in 34 states, plus Ontario, it sure to be a fun time!
