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.

Block 5   Our BOM for 2019…block 5 is called “Lone Star”.  Once again we had a great turnout for block 4.  Don’t forget to bring your finished block to the June 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  It will not be published in the newsletter or on SSQ’s web page.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. We had a block left at the April meeting (block 3).  It was not claimed at the May meeting so we will bring it back with us to the June meeting.  Please remember to pick up your blocks at the end of each meeting. Also, if you had trouble with block 4, Ferris Wheel, and do not have email we have a different template you can pick up at the June meeting.  If you have any questions for the past or the present BOM feel free to contact one of us.

Happy Quilting!
