Block of the Month

Block of the Month

Each month the Committee offers an opportunity for members to join them with construction of a block depicting a new technique or pattern with the goal of creating finished quilt project.  The series begins in February and end with a completed block in January of the following year.

2019 Block of the Month.

Block 2

 

 

Block 2 has begun, it is called “Cornered Hearts”.  Once again we had a great turnout for our first block.  Don’t forget to bring your finished block to the March meeting so you can show off your great work!  As usual, the directions to each block will be emailed to members.  It will not be published in the newsletter or on SSQ’s web page.  No email?  No problem!  Those members without email may pick up the directions at each meeting.  If you have any questions for the past or the present BOM feel free to contact one of us.

As a quick reminder…bring last year’s BOM challenge to the March meeting to show off your craftsmanship as well as be entered for a chance to win a prize!!

Happy Quilting!

 2018 Block of the Month

Jewel Buck and Debbie Sasser guided our participating members through each featured block of the month from a design pattern by Sherri Noel of Rebeccamaedesigns.com .   Participating members obtained the pattern.  

“Join us for 12 months of fantastic blocks.  Each block will introduce you to a different quilting technique, or refresh your quilting memory.  We have been given permission by the designer, Sherri Noel of rebeccamaedesigns.com to use her block of the month pattern “Scrap Happy”.  Feel free to visit her web site as the patterns for each block will not be included in the newsletter or on SSQ’s website.  Hopefully you will decide to join our adventure.  Happy quilting!”
