BLOCK OF THE MONTH
This year we are hosting a Mystery Block of the Month project. Members will choose fabric based upon the color wheel and receive instructions each month, resulting in a finished quilt by the end of the year.
- January – pick your fabrics
- February – start making your blocks
- Block patterns / instructions to be provided each month
- Instructions will be specific to the size of quilt you choose
- September – design your quilt layout
- October/November – quilt
- December – share your finished quilt!
