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. Ricky will be offering free downloads of the block patterns for the Legacy Quilt on his personal website (www.rickytims.com). He 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.
Look at the Flying Geese Block using Ricky’s hand-dyed blendables. Ricky will be presenting four colorway 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.

I have added these quotes and a link to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Legacy and Research Association. How COOL that this is the Laura Ingalls Wilder 150th birthday year. That makes this a timely project!!! Share the news with your friends.

I just got your website address from the Anchorage Log Cabin Quilters newsletter. Very exciting project! I am a fabric designer and I'm launching a fun quilting project next month involving Alaska quilt shops. I would really like to get the word out - is it possible for me to post a couple of jpg pictures here?

Thanks for another fun project. Looking forward to being part of the "club".

The templates are accurate. We made the four blocks using these exact templates. Template B doesn't really relate to template C. Template C is the huge triangle (north, south, east and west) in the block and template B are the four outside corners that attach to the paper pieced geese units.

I have printed off the templates, but template C
looks too big to go with template B. Am i doing. something wrong?

I'm 86 and still making quilts. This really sounds like fun. And I also have quite a stash. :lol:
