BLOCK OF THE MONTH -- 2013 - 2015
When we put our heads together for a Block of the Month plan, we decided on
"tried and true" classic patterns using fabrics from our stash with one fabrc
provided by QBS to be used in each block for continuity.
Our objective is to create as much participation as possible for our members at
all levels of experience. We selected relatively simple blocks that required
machine piecing only. We hope to see many blocks displayed on our board
each month. In addition to the blocks made for our drawing, please feel free
to make a block for yourself each month so that you can have a sampler quilt
of your own.
In June, we gave out a pattern for summer fun, a lovely butterfly. Almost
fifty patterns and fabric were distributed. Hopefully everyone has finished
their block, signed it on the front, and are ready to win them all at the
drawing. We will also be handing out some piecing tips with our first pattern
