Northcott has organized a Stonehenge Block Party that includes quilt shops all around the world. The Stonehenge Block Party will run from March 15, 2019 to September 30, 2019. Participating shops design a unique block pattern using fabrics from the Stonehenge Solstice collection. This pattern will be packaged with the fabric to be sold as a block kit to quilters during the block party dates.
Quilters are invited to visit each shop to buy and collect the unique blocks. They can collect as many as they like. The challenge for quilters is to use at least 12 different blocks in a quilt design and submit a PHOTO of their finished quilt to Northcott for the International Stonehenge Block Party Challenge. The quilts have to be made of 100% Stonehenge fabrics from the Solstice Anniversary collection with the option of including the Gradations oxidized copper palette.
The Northcott judges will select TEN finalists and have them send in their quilts for a final round of judging. They will then choose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner.
There is a dedicated section on the Northcott website where you will find a store listing, a Google Map of all participating shops, block party guidelines, and contest rules.
On social media, there is a dedicated Facebook page and a dedicated Instagram feed.
The three winning quilts will be displayed in a Traveling Stonehenge Quilt Display.
The Grand Prize will be a 9-day Trip for two to England with a private tour of Stonehenge in June 2020!
2nd place prize is $1000 USD and a Stonehenge fabric prize pack valued at $250.
3rd place prize is $500 USD and a Stonehenge fabric prize pack valued at $100
