|WELCOME to Block of the Month (BOM)
Block of the Month 2020
The theme of the 2020 Block of the Month is Baskets & Flowers. Members will be
provided with three different basket patterns and three different flower patterns throughout
the course of the year. How will you fill your baskets? Its entirely up to you!
Members will construct two blocks from the same pattern. The first "pin up" and drawing
will be in February.
Directions are provided for both the Go! Cutter and traditional rotary cutting.
Don't have a Go! Cutter? Members can bring their fabric cut to the measurements given
in the Go! instructions to Sew Time before the meeting. Go! Cutters with the appropriate
dies will be available.
Block 1: Basket One - January/February
Block 2: Tulips - March/April
Block 3: Basket Two - May/June
Block 4: Posies - July/August
Block 5: Basket Three - September/October
Block 6: Flower - November
We will display your interpretation of each block at the meeting. Those who complete
blocks will be entered into a raffle to win a prize. Don't forget to take your blocks
home at the end of the meeting - you'll need them to assemble your quilt at the
end of the year!
There will have be a limited number of printed instructions at each meeting. If you have the
capacity to receive these instructions electronically, please do not take a printed copy.
The instruction have been scanned in a PDF format and will be emailed to those
members that have email addresses listed in the membership list. Let’s save a few trees
while we’re at it.
Already thinking about next year?
