2016 Fabric of the Month

Hi BTCQ Quilters. 
After a soggy, chilly Halloween we have moved on to a glorious Autumn week that puts me in the mood for color and inspiration!  Time to reveal plans for next year's Fabric of the Month Club!!!
After going over our little surveys and coordinating with our fabulous Program Committee, we have a plan!!!!
I know that some of you will be shopping this weekend before our Autumn retreat and over the winter months, so here is a glimpse into next year's Fabric of the Month Club.  Hurray for early shopping and bargains!
We are once again going to collect fabulous Batiks but with a twist.  Each month's color will match the month.  We will still cut 2 1/2" strips some months, but will also be using other size cuts to coordinate with the fun our Program Committee has planned for us. I think you'll love what is in store for you !!!  Fabric of the Month and MORE!!
So that you can get started collecting your BATIKS for next year, here are the colors we are planning:  1 YARD FOR EACH MONTH
February - Valentine reds and pinks
March -  Shamrock Greens
April - Pastels for Easter
May - Daffodils and crocus
June - Brides white and creams
July -  Patriotic blues
August -  Turquoise or Beach colors 
September -  Red apple for the teacher
October -  Halloween Black and Orange

Happy early shopping!!!!  
Have a warm and safe winter and HURRAY for the beginning of another fun Fabric of the Month Club in 2016!
