Block of the Month

​​​​​​​​​2018 Block of the Month Star Sampler Quilt

​This BOM will be a series of nine, 12″ traditional star blocks taken from Marcia Hohn’s website, http://quilterscache.com/QuiltBlocksGalore.html   The committee has chosen three easy, three intermediate, and three difficult 12″ blocks.

Those who finish their blocks for the current month and bring them to the general meeting will have their name entered into a drawing for a small surprise pack which may consist of fat quarters, a quilt pattern, etc.

​The block patterns are given out in the month shown (as seen below) and are due at the subsequent month’s guild meeting.
