Block of the Month

Made with modern Block of the Month designs

Participating in Block of the Month is a way to learn new techniques, try new designs or patterns, play with fabrics and colors … and win blocks.

At monthly meetings the BOM chair presents a pattern and sample block (also available in the newsletter). Interested members bring block(s), enter their names for a drawing (one entry per block) the following month, and one lucky quilter goes home with all the blocks.

Many great quilts have started this way. For details, please get in touch with Mariana Schwartz; her contact info is in the Membership Directory.

Here’s what it looks like to win blocks and complete a BOM quilt!

Margaret Barrett was the June 2018 winner of blocks made by participating guild members using Julia McLeod’s Books on a Shelf  pattern. Named Library, the quilt won first place in the group category at the 2019 Quilt Show.

If you are interested in showing off your BOM, email a pictures & information about the quilt to our Web Manager.
