Block of the Month 2018-2019
This year’s Block of the Month program will use the versatile “4 Patch”. All
of the blocks will be constructed within the 4 patch grid. Blocks submitted
each month will be donated to the Comfort Quilt Program. The Comfort
Quilts program will be contributing to organizations that serve men this
year. If you could keep color and fabric choices suitable for men in mind as
you make your blocks the recipients will appreciate it!
You will receive a ticket that will be placed into the monthly drawing for
each block you bring to the monthly meeting . Monthly prizes will vary but
will be either fabric or patterns or Both! We hope you will participate in the
program again this year!
