Okay, the word “club" is being used loosely — there’s nothing to actually join. Still, Ricky Tims is gathering a virtual group of quilters for a fun, “take-your-time” project and it’s totally free! The Legacy Quilt Club
is the name Ricky is giving to anyone wanting to play along. Starting in February, Ricky will be offering free downloads of the block patterns for the Legacy Quilt
on his personal website (www.rickytims.com
). Ricky will be presenting one pattern per month for the next 20 months!
In 2015 Ricky designed the blocks for a local production of, The Quilters. Most of the blocks in this quilt are used to intertwine the stories of pioneer women. The play reveals their hardships, their celebrations, and their tragedies. Ricky’s local theater company performed the show in 2015. The blocks are used to help tell the stories of the pioneer women. Due to the small theater in La Veta, Colorado, Ricky’s Legacy Quilt had to be designed horizontally. You can make yours vertically.
The Legacy Quilt is filled with timeless classic quilt blocks. Each block is fifteen inches.
THE NEW BLENDABLES from RICKY TIMS INC.
Look at the Flying Geese Block using Ricky’s hand-dyed blendables. Ricky will be presenting four color-way options featuring his new Blendables — beautiful gradations of hand-dyed fabrics. Using the Blendables is totally optional, but we know you’ll love them. The hardest part will be choosing which is your favorite colorway. Lucky Legacy Quilt Club participants will get a coupon code for 15% off of these beautiful Blendables when the project launches.
