Welcome to the 2023

Block of the Month!

This year’s Block of the Month project is a 9-block star sample quilt called “Stars for Service”. Each month a new star pattern will be presented and by Veterans Day we should be ready to sew them into a top that can be given to our Veterans’ program. Each block will be in our newsletter, on our website and shown at the monthly meeting. January’s block will be due in February, February’s in March and so on. I’m hoping you will make 2 blocks: one for you to keep and one to donate to the BOM project. 

 

Fabric: The block you make to donate should be red, white, and blue.

It can be scrappy or you can elect to use the same fabric throughout the months.

 

Size: All blocks will be 12 ½” unfinished (12” finished). We will add borders to make a nice lap size quilt.

It looks like we will have 14 quilts to contribute to the guild’s Veterans Program. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the 2023 Block of the Month program. If you made blocks and put them together into a top or quilt, please bring it to the October meeting. It would be wonderful to have a few more.

 

Stay tuned for information about the 2024 Block of the Month Mystery Quilt. The fabric requirements will be in the December newsletter so we can kick off the blocks in January. Hope you’ll join in the fun.

Happy Sewing!
