Calico Gals is honored to once again be one of the 12 shops that have banded together to create fun blocks and beautiful quilts for quilters like us! Exclusive batik fabrics from Island Batik were used by all 12 shops to create their own quilt block and a stunning finishing kit. Collect your favorites or collect them all!

Let us introduce the block from Calico Gals! This beauty only looks complicated. Actually it’s assembled with simple squares and triangles. It’s the color placement that creates the magic! Includes pattern and pre-cut batik fabric to create a 9" block.

Available April 1st


Long before the event got started, the shops swapped blocks so we each could create a sampler quilt following the theme, “Where We Live.” The beautiful snowy white background fabric made it easy for Calico Gals! We are located in Syracuse NY, one of the snowiest cities in the country!

Presenting... Jewels in the Snow

Not just for winter, the quilt and pillow ensemble is perfect for decorating throughout the year. The smaller size of the quilt makes it perfect to toss onto the corner of a sofa or tuck into a patio chair. And it’s so “finish-able” you won’t have a box of pieces waiting around for “someday.”

As you construct each of the jewels, you are actually creating bonus blocks to make the coordinating pillow. Your kit includes enough batik fabric for assembling your collected Sewing Sewcial blocks into the 48x66 inch quilt top and front and back of the coordinating pillow.
