Participants create their own blocks and bring them each month for display and to be eligible for monthly prize drawings.  Then the participants take their own blocks home and, at the end of the year, each has enough blocks for an entire quilt. 

2017 Block of the Month Project

Christmas Wishes Christmas Wishes

All are invited to participate in the 2017 Block of the Month. The first two blocks are due at the May Guild meeting. We will do two blocks a month except for the large center block and the finishing.

Bring your two blocks to the monthly guild meeting to receive two tickets for a chance to win a small 'quilty" prize. If you only get one block done, bring it, and get one ticket. There will be a Grand Prize drawing in December for all finished tops.

The pattern, Christmas Wishes, is available online at http://www.debbiemumm.com/Projects/QuiltBlocks/2008/. Please print out the patterns from the webpage.
