Freedom Bound Block of Month

Freedom Bound Block of the Month | Essence of Me

The year is 1859. The country is in turmoil. Tempers on both sides are heating up. In Claiborne County, Mississippi, a very unusual family is preparing for a trip to freedom. This is the story of Hannah Cummings Cotton, her plantation life, her children, and her journey to Ohio, leaving the chains of slavery behind. This Common Threads original block of the month will begin in September and run for 12 months. The program includes the pattern and the fabric for your quilt top and binding.

You can choose to have your pieces cut by LASER for a small additional fee. The finished quilt measures 97″ x 97″.

Classes are available from beginner to the more specialized arts. Denice, our owner, has a passion for antique quilts and has created original patterns so that these antiques can be reproduced.
