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.
Block of the Month 2017 Show
In January, 2018, the final blocks for the 2017 Block of the Month series were presented. We anticipate a wonderful show of these assembled quilts at the April 2018 General meeting. Can you imagine the pictures these blocks will make as a finished quilt top? Here are the results as shown at our April General Meeting.
2018 Block of the Month
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!”
BLOCK OF THE MONTH
We are in our third month for block of the month. We had another great participation by members for March’s block, “Hexi-Flower”.
This month’s block is called “Joseph’s Coat Variation”. It lets us try our hand at fusing a narrow layer on the outer edge of the shape, rather than on the entire shape. Or, you can just raw edge appliqué. Feel free to follow the pattern layout or choose your own! This block will be due at the April meeting. Instructions are e-mailed to members only each month. Those members without e-mail may pick up written instructions at the meeting. Missed the meeting and need the instructions? Give us a call, we’ll be happy to help you out!
Happy Quilting! Jewell and Debbie
