Block of the Month
Do you like to try a new quilt blocks without committing to an entire project with that block? Then Block of the Month is for you!
At each month's guild meeting a "block of the month" will be featured. You can see a completed sample block, and instructions for making it are provided. Members can then make something out of this block, using the fabric and colours of your choice, and bring it to the next meeting to share at show-and-tell.
You can use Block of the Month to practice your quilting stitches and binding techniques while making something to use or give away. Choose colours that you like, or use this an opportunity to try combining colours that are out of your comfort zone. Be creative!
The options are many and varied. Examples to consider:
The block photos and instructions are posted here shortly after each meeting. So if you miss a guild meeting, you can still participate.
