We wrapped up our 2021-2022 Block of the Month / Challenge at our October 2022 in person meeting.
This Block of the Month (BOM) was a celebration of our guild's 20th anniversary and consisted of blocks from the past years' blocks of the month. Each month our BOM coordinators Johanne and Amanda spun a wheel on our Zoom screens to select a block for that month from a large selection of past blocks. And then they reached into the pile of blocks they had made, and showed us that month's winning block. This BOM evolved into a challenge to see how creative our guild members could be to make these random blocks, of differing sizes, and incorporate them into a quilt. There were no restrictions on the fabric used in these quilts.
The results were amazing!
The prizes (gift certificates to Sew Inspired) were awarded based on viewers' choice voting and the winners were:
1st Emma Russell
2nd Gwen Pennings
The voting resulted in a tie for second place and Emma was asked to choose the piece of paper with the tie-breaking quilt number.
Once again our guild members inspired and impressed us with their creativity in fabric and colour selections, placement of the blocks, and their impressive piecing and finishing skills.
Here are the winning quilts.
