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.  


Jewel Buck and Debbie Sasser will be guiding our participating members through each featured block of the month from a design pattern by Sherri Noel of .   Participating members will need to obtain the pattern.   Instructions are e-mailed to members only each month.  Those members without e-mail may pick up written instructions at the meeting.  Contact Jewel Buck or Debbie Sasser for more information.

“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 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.  The block pattern instructions will be emailed each month to members only upon request.  We are extremely excited about these blocks and hope you become as excited as we are.  Hopefully you will decide to join our adventure.  Happy quilting!”
