An Exclusive Block-of-the-Month Program begins September 2010 through March 2011
Aunt Grace Circle of Friends
In honor of the 100th birthday of Aunt Grace, Judie Rothermel has created a very special Aunt Grace collection, Circle of Friends, to be merchandised exclusively through a BOM program designed & developed by Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek. As the originator of 1930’s reproduction fabrics for the quilting industry, Judie presents her Aunt Grace devotees with a group of prints that is varied in color, scale and motif, as well as classic Aunt Grace solids.
Together, Judie Rothermel and Vicki Bellino have designed a project that’s not only
beautiful, but also provides quilters with new techniques to advance their quilting skills.
Aunt Grace Circle of Friends is the result of months of collaboration between Judie Rothermel

and Vicki Bellino. Their friendship has developed because of quilting, as was the case with
Aunt Grace’s own circle of friends. The quilt design represents many Aunt Grace favorites, including pinwheels, the Dresden plate, her local county fair and cake sales. Judie also captures Aunt Grace’s love of small prints in this exclusive collection, and the quilt design incorporates the use of solids, which Aunt Grace used often in her quilts.

Vicki adds her own creative “spin” on the theme by designing a quilt with her unique interpretation of the traditional Aunt Grace style, as well as her personal passion for English paper piecing and appliqué. The appliqué is minimal, making it suitable for even a beginning quilter and instructions for two techniques are included in the instructions. Throughout the 7-month program, Vicki shares her easy methods, allowing the quilter to experiment and learn as she or he creates. This makes Circle of Friends a perfect way to introduce new quilters to Aunt Grace while also appealing to the long-time Aunt Grace collector!
