Block of the Month 2013-14

A Mystery Quilt

 Sign up to participate at the meetings and put your name to the Block of the Month bag.  You only have to sign up one time, not at each meeting.

Everyone will choose their own colors/fabrics and keep their own quilt.

You do not have to bring any of the blocks to the meetings to show, unless you want to.

There should be someone at the block of the month table each month to answer any questions that you might have about the project or about the blocks.  You can also email questions to Susan Chace with NBQA in the email title.

Theme: Spring

Type: Sampler (includes various techniques)

Size:  54” x 54” to 60” x 60”      (Wall Quilt or Throw)

Block construction information will be found at a couple of internet sites.   Please note that some of the designs are original so make note of the terms of use.

If you have a friend that wants to participate, but doesn’t have a computer or internet access, you might want to invite them to join you to get the block information they will need.

You will need to choose a color that you will use in each of the pieced blocks.  You can make that choice a single focus fabric that you use in each of the pieced blocks, or a group of different fabrics of the same color.  If you choose a single focus fabric you should probably have a least a yard to ensure you have enough for all the blocks.

You will have a choice of blocks to complete so that everyone will not have the same finished quilt.   Therefore, fabric requirements will vary.  Make the blocks using any colors/fabrics you want.  There is no need to follow colors shown on line or colors suggested by the block title.

I want to point out that this quilt tends to be “busy” because of the different block sizes and overall design so keep that in mind as you choose your fabrics.  You may want to consider a single background fabric to unify the blocks.

Most of all have fun!
