STONEHENGE 10th Anniversary Contests

Northcott is celebrating its 10-year anniversary of their Stonehenge line with 3 contests. Long story short, they are offering great prizes for all 3 contests, including a 9–day trip for 2 to England awarded to the winner of the contest for best quilt created from 12 blocks collected from over 300 different participating shops. Yes, the Nimble Thimble has a block!

The Nimble Thimble Block is 18″ and comes in 6 color ways, pictured below on the left.  Single block kits are $8. Shipping is $5 for a single kit, or only $10 for 2-6 kits. As a bonus, this lovely block can be used to make a standalone quilt of Celtic knots, called Entwined Hearts, pictured below on the right, pattern available. Both the block and quilt design are credited to Sandi of Gramma Sandi Quilts.
