The purchase of this pattern helps support the Airedale Quilting Bee,
so they can continue to help fundraise for National Airedale Rescue.

The Airedale Quilting Bee is offering the individual block patterns for the main 2010 quilt, "A is For Airedale." You can buy individual blocks for $3 each, or the entire 25-block set for $30. The patterns can be used for many things beyond a quilt or pillow. Create a stencil, wood silhouettes, appliqué patches; let your imagination run wild.

Your purchase of a block -- or the whole set -- is important. This pattern sale is the first stitch in the safety net that extends to Airedale Rescue groups nationwide. The pattern sales will help defray the costs of the quilting bee fundraiser, whose sole purpose is to help fund National Airedale Rescue. Each purchase helps to ensure the funding needed so the Bee can continue to create these beautiful quilts thus providing much needed support for Airedale Rescue.

To order the whole set, click on the "add to cart" button at the top of the pattern blocks.

Individual blocks may be ordered by clicking on the button beneath the block(s) of your choice.

We offer patterns for Y and Z as separate blocks as well as a pattern for the combined YZ block as it is in the quilt. If you order the entire set of patterns, you will receive the Y, Z and combined YZ patterns.
Each letter pattern you are purchasing will print out on a separate 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper.
It is not in pieces nor are seam allowances added.

No instructions accompany the block(s); after your payment is received, a .pdf of the block will be e-mailed to you.

If you cannot receive a .pdf, or do not use PayPal, please contact Rebecca at to make other arrangements.
