Hancock County 2023 Ice Quilters Derby

Hi Derbyers! Bolt Fabrics, Quilt ‘NFabric, and Fabricate are busy planning for our 7th Annual Hancock County Ice Quilting Derby, starting on January 3, 2023 and running until March 31. This year we’ll be back to our regular in-person format, with a Derby card to be stamped at all 3 shops once every month, special sales, kits, and prizes. You’ll receive a printed block pattern from each shop–one every month. When you complete the Derby in March, you’ll receive finishing instructions. And as always, participation is FREE.

And look, Myrtle’s already been fishing for a block pattern! 🙂 For our 2023 Derby, The Bird is the Word…actually, 12 birds in all, every one of them a familiar Maine visitor. Each shop owner is designing her own set of bird patterns, using several different techniques. We are learning new things and loving it! We hope you will, too.

Stay tuned for more details! And start planning your Derby course. ❤ Happy holiday season, Derby friends!
