Like it’s cousin Row by Row Experience, Wooly Block Adventure is all about quilting, travel, and collecting. For Wooly Block, quilters travel to wool stitchery shops to collect free block patterns that become a unique wool sampler.
People who participate in WBA are affectionately known as ‘Woolies’, quilters and stitchers full of enthusiasm and warmth for all things wool.
Wooly patterns are highlighted each week on the RxR Experience website during the Wooly Block Adventure season, via Special Shoplight Shops pages. Wonderful sampler projects bring ‘woolies’ together in their shared love of wool. Woolies unite!
December 1 - January 31

Flossy’s Block (aka The 9th Block)
Since 9 is the perfect number to create a 3 block x 3 block sampler, a bonus 9th Block is available in several stores. Ask for it and include it in your project. Note: Flossy’s Block must be the 9th block. You still must include 8 blocks from 8 different 2018 WBA participating stores to claim a prize.
