Jo's Little Women Club

Jo's Little Women Club part 9 is currently running in the store. Participants purchase a stack of Jo Morton fat quarters (1800s era fabrics designed by Jo Morton) for $125, then for only $5 each month they come along to a class where we start a Little Quilt.

Jo Morton designs Little Quilts, so we have the name "Jo's Little Women Club".

The Club runs for 6 months. During that time, participants attend 6 classes and receive 6 patterns. This is Jo Morton's 9th series, although this is our first time. In this series there are 2 little quilts and 1 little-ish medallion that is in 4 installments.

Here are the night group's versions of the first installment - the "patriotic strippy quilt".

Rosie's quilt top in pink and brown.

Wow! Tracee, this is definitely a patriotic quilt!

The colours in the quilts are fabulous.

Annie even quilted hers exactly as suggested by Jo Morton in the pattern.

Elizabeth hasn't quite finished her quilt top yet, and Sandra is completing her Little Quilts in Queensland, we patiently await her photos while she moves house.

You too can join Jo's Little Women Club online, no matter whereyou live. We would love to see pictures of your little quilts!!
