The October 2022 Eastern 401 Quilt Run is officially over! Thank you to everyone who visited one or many of our participating stores and purchased a block or two! We can’t wait to see what you make! Please find the Finishing Instructions for the 2022 quilt at the link below.

What is a Quilt Run?

A quilt run is an organized event in which participants visit 5 to 7 quilt shops and pick up a block or blocks at each one.  The object is to collect enough blocks to build a quilt.

The October 2022 401 Quilt Run is our dabble towards returning to our favourite pastime: shop hops!  To test the waters we have designed an Eastern Ontario 401 run this Fall to whet your appetite.  We have selected the “All Around the Neighbourhood” quilt and each of the participating shops are offering a unique to their store house block! (Visit each shop under “Participating Shops” to see each store’s block) In addition there are a series of accompanying blocks (trees, flowers, fences and lawns) to fill in the spaces between, some shops will be kitting these components as well but it is ultimately up to you what fabrics you choose for these components.

Entries for the GRAND PRIZE (TBA) valued at $700 CAD that all 7 shops have contributed to have closed.

Congratulations to the GRAND PRIZE WINNER Martha Kenny!
