Beginning in January, each month a member will sew and present a quick demo on how to construct that month's 12" finished block. Photos of the construction steps and brief written instructions will also be provided by the member and posted each month here on the website approximately one week prior to the meeting.
You may choose to design a new block, or you can choose a design that you have seen online or in a magazine or book (just be sure to give proper credit to the original designer!). Please keep in mind that we are a Modern Quilt Guild, so the block designs should reflect that. Don't be scared - it will be great fun! You can do it, and we can help you!
If your block design(s) is chosen, you will be provided with fabric to make your sample block that will eventually be part of a guild quilt that will be either raffled or donated at the end of the year.
For more information about this program and to volunteer to design a block, please email us at crystallakemqg (at) gmail (dot) com.
Please volunteer by December 1 so that we can begin scheduling blocks for each month.
Here are links to two US Modern Quilt Guilds that offered BOM programs to their members in 2013. Check them out to get some block ideas or just to see what other guilds are up to:
Thanks everyone, and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday!!
