Bristle Creek Farmhouse Block of the Month

The prints in Paula Barnes’ new collection, BRISTLE CREEK FARMHOUSE, were inspired by a quilt top she discovered along with Mary Ellen Robison in a Florida antique shop. Both traditional and triangle paper methods are used to create their quilt design, and to simplify the construction process, Red Crinoline Quilts again teams with Liz Eagan of Spinning Star Designs for a 12-Month Program beginning in March 2018.  Call the shop to hold your spot!  The cost will be $26.99 per month for 12 months.
