Michelle Renee Hiatt designed each of the blocks in Grandma’s Blessing to be timeless with a twist. These blocks are inspired from newspaper clippings found in her Oma’s “under the bed box”, basically old newspaper and catalog clippings from the early 1900s through 1980. Michelle has taken the blocks and modernized the construction method to today's times and streamlined the piecing process using her favorite Studio 180 Design Tools.
Each month of this twelve month block of the month, you’ll learn new techniques and ways to use our favorite Studio 180 tools. The quilt utilizes the Tucker Trimmer, Wing Clipper, Square Squared, Quilter’s Magic Wand, and V Block. After making this quilt you’ll be hooked on how magical these tools are. Once you’ve learned how to use the Studio 180 tools it’ll be easy to spot these block types in your future projects and thus be able to more easily piece precise blocks.
As part of the block of the month you’ll receive detailed, illustrated instructions each month on how to use the Studio 180 tools to construct your block. If you’re more of a hands on learner, attend the Grandma’s Blessings class on the fourth Tuesday of each month. This class is included as a bonus for block of the month participants at no additional charge.
The finished quilt is 72" x 72". The sign up fee is $30 for the 12 month program. The monthly cost is $16. Throughout the course of the year you will receive the full pattern and fabric for the top and binding. The first block will be available January 15. Beginning in February, each block will be available on the 1st of the month.

Easton Loop West designed by Kori Turner-Goodhart of Olive Grace Studios was inspired by the row houses of Columbus, Ohio. The quilt is primarily hand applique. If you’d prefer you could use fusible applique instead. The pattern calls for hand embroidery for the detailing, but we used a triple stitch on our machine to speed up the sewing a bit. You can do as much or as little hand work on this quilt as you'd like! We also used cork on the trees to add a bit more texture to the quilt.
This quilt is a great way to learn different applique techniques including needle turn hand applique, stitch and flip, and fusible raw edge applique. Each month Jennifer will have a technique video to guide you on the different techniques. The applique on this quilt may seem a bit overwhelming, but it’s all broken down into small manageable sections each month.
The first month you’ll receive the entire pattern and fabric for three houses. Each month you’ll receive additional fabric and notes on the section to be completed. By the end of six months, your entire quilt top will be done!
The monthly fee is $30. Over the six months you will receive the pattern, cork, fabric for top and binding, and buttons (door knobs).Call Rae-Bon Sew & Quilt Shop at 701-433-7203 to sign up today!
