Block of the Month 2015-2016
This year the Block of the Month program will work with the Comfort Quilts program. Members can make blocks to donate to the Comfort Quilts program. Blocks will be used to make quilts during the Quilt-a-thon.
Of course, you can always make a block for yourself.
In addition, members will be able to sign up at the September meeting to receive fabric that has been donated to the Comfort Quilts program and use that fabric to make the donation blocks.
Finally, when you bring your blocks to the meeting you will be entered into a drawing for a fat quarter (or two). This fabric has been donated to our group by various fabric companies and individuals.
This year’s block directions will be posted on the website or a link from the internet will be provided where the directions can be found.
Many of the blocks were available and popular when our guild began 40 years ago.
September – Log Cabin
October – Trip around the World
November – Ohio Star and Churn Dash
January – No Block due to “Pot Luck”
February – Heart Blocks
March – Bow Tie
April – No Block due to Quilt Show
May – Scrappy Baskets
We hope you will choose to become involved in this year’s Block of the Month program.
It promises to be rewarding as we contribute to NBQA’s charitable efforts and sharpen our piecing skills.
