Block of the Month 2014-15

Block of the Month will have two parts for this NBQA year. Members who would like to participate in Block of the Month can participate in one or both parts of the program.

Part 1 – Traditional Block of the Month Program

Directions for eight blocks (6 incorporating the flying geese block using various techniques, 1 other piecing and one appliqué block) will be distributed at the September meeting and will be available on this website.

  • Members are invited to make a block each month and bring it to bring to the monthly meeting.
  • Members will receive one raffle ticket for each block that’s turned in at the meeting.
  • A winning ticket will be drawn each month and the winning member can take home all of the blocks that were turned in that night.

Part 2 – Members make a designated number of blocks each month in their own chosen colors, which can be used to make a quilt.

  • Blocks are brought to the meeting and the member receives a ticket for a drawing for a fat quarter, but keeps the blocks for her own quilt.

Directions for a quilt layout are provided in the NBQA Block of the month booklet and are available on the NBQA website.

Quilt Options:

  • 84 x 84 – 49 Block (square) quilt
  • 72 x 84 – 48 Block quilt (rectangle) can be made

Members who participated in Block of the Month Part 2 can bring completed quilts to the September 2015 meeting for display.

Quilts can be entered into 2016 Quilt Show and will be displayed together.
