This year Patchwork Party features Arabella Rose from RJR Fabrics.
These beautiful fabrics from RJR run in two basic color combinations: green/raspberry and purple/rust. You need to make a decision early in the program as to which color combo you will follow. In each block kit you will find the necessary fabrics for BOTH color combinations. You will want to make all of your blocks in either one or the other and put the extra fabrics in your stash.
Garden Star was designed by Marti Michell and made with the Arabella Rose collection by RJR. This block is sold exclusively at Quilting by the Bay in Panama City for Patchwork Party 2012. You can make this block using the paper templates included in the pattern or with Marti's Template Sets B and D.
Price includes free shipping and handling to U.S. addresses! Quilters in Canada and Mexico will be charged an additional $2 for shipping. International quilters will be charged an additional $3 for shipping.

About Patchwork Party:
Patchwork Party began in 2006 and is the brainchild of Deb Lutrell. Each year, a fabric line is chosen and Marti Michell of From Marti, designs 12 blocks from the chosen fabric line. Each of the 12 participating quilt shops is assigned one of the blocks to kit and sell in their shop. Each shop is also given the task of designing a unique finishing kit using all 12 blocks, which will be sold in their shop.
How to Participate:
Go to patchworkparty.com for current information and to view previous Patchwork Parties.

Once you’ve collected all 12 blocks, click on the Finishing Kit Gallery link, move your cursor over each thumbnail at the top of the page to view each shop’s finishing kit.
