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.  

 2018 

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 Rebeccamaedesigns.com .   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 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.  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!”

As we near the final blocks for block of the month, I hope everyone gets as excited as we are to finally be able to put our blocks together. As always, we had great participation by members for November’s block, “Balancing Act”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we near the final blocks for block of the month, I hope everyone gets as excited as we are to finally be able to put our blocks together. As always, we had great participation by members for November’s block “Balancing Act.” 

This month’s block is “Bargello.”  We are also sending the border along with December’s block so you can get a head start if you choose to do the border designed to go with the quilt.

Again, the border is your choice! Instructions are e-mailed to “members only” each month. Those members without e-mail may pick up written instructions at the meeting. Remember, it is your block, you can put it together any way you choose. If you still need help, just give us a call. Missed the meeting and need the instructions? Give us a call, we’ll be happy to help you out!

        Happy Quilting!
