Sign up today for Storytellers!

We all know the stories, but how many of us know the women behind the stories? The Storytellers is a gorgeous 12 month Block of the Month Program honoring the female authors of some very classic books. Each pattern has interesting tidbits about ladies who changed the literary scene. For instance, did you know Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein when she was only nineteen years old? Exclusively designed by Denice Lipscomb, this is what The Storytellers BOM is all about. Here is some very useful info that you need to know!

The finished quilt size is 102″ x 102″
4 bonus projects made with scraps are also included (3 quilts and 1 wall hanging).
