Visit participating quilt shops during the summer to collect the Quilters Trek Pattern for a block in a True Blue quilt. Patterns are offered at no cost, one per person, to shop visitors during the event dates, Jun. 21 - Sep. 8. Shops are offering the patterns as a thank you for visiting the store. Please do not ask for a pattern to be sent by mail or email. All patterns are copyright property of the designers. You may not copy or transfer the pattern in any format without express permission from the pattern author or publisher.
While supplies last… begining Jun. 22 you can purchase the Jewel's fabric Stash - True Blue Quilters Trek kit in-store and find a Quilters Trek token inside the package. Each area has seven unique tokens to collect and trade!
Bonus… just for fun… a few of the kits have Golden Tokens tucked inside!
Jewel's Fabric Stash Block
The thumbnail pictured below shows the blocks going horizontal, but you can place them vertical or in a square. It doesn't really matter, just as long as it's not upside down! The log cabin square with all the color is meant to represent a mountain sunset, so upside down would be bad.
New Challenge Date July 15 - October 15 (no winners in the first weeks!)
To participate in the challenge, you must create a quilt using a minimum of 32 9-inch designs from at least eight participating stores.
Use any pattern to layout your designs. You decide how you want to put them together. Stack them up, arrange around a center medallion, make them horizontal, vertical, upside down, on the front, on the back, whatever! You are the designer, just be sure to use the four blocks from each shop. Be creative and have fun, but be sure to use at least 32 9-inch blocks from at least eight different 2020 participating shops, and you must be able to identify the blocks for each store.
The first two people to bring a complete (quilted, bound, labeled) quilt into a participating store July 15 - October 15, 2020 will receive 15 fat quarters. You get a bonus prize if you include a design from the shop where you submit your challenge.
Flexible Shopping Options. This year you can either buy your kit online or in the store. All kits include a pattern and a token. Curb side pick-up is available, just give us a call and let us know you are coming.
All shops are open different hours! Be sure to check the shop websites or call ahead to verify summer hours when planning your route.
New this year– 2020 Shop Finder on the Quilters Trek website.

Kids can play too! Many stores will be offering a free pattern for children up through age 16. We all want kids to enjoy the wonderful hobby of quilting!
The important disclaimer: One prize per quilter. You may make several quilts and show them off in several shops, but you and your quilt may only claim one prize. Your quilt will be photographed for display on Facebook and our photo gallery everyone to see.
