Block of the Month 2016-2017 – Round Robin Instead
Block of the Mystery 2015-2106
Hold on to your fabric because this year we’re going to shake things up! I am combining the BOM and the Mystery into one, large BLOCK OF THE MYSTERY! You may choose to only complete the BOM and that would be awesome… but why stop there when you could end up with a wonderfully scrappy, twin size quilt?
I have designed the quilt to use up those 2.5 inch strips, expand your piecing horizons and stretch your color imagination! The approximate size will be 70×90 which is about twin size.
For yardage, the program I used was very vague so I am sorry I can’t be more specific but I used 15 fabrics in my mock up and it said there was no more than a yard of each color. I would encourage you to grab random yardage, fat quarters, scraps and LOTS of 2 ½“strips for this project. The more colors the better! If you love each fabric, you will love the quilt.
For support, I will be attending nearly every open sew this year to help out those who may want help with new piecing techniques so don’t be scared! It will be brilliant! I know you can do this!
Updates to Part A – from 2 ½ inch strips:
- 2 – 18.5” strips
- 2 – 24.5” strips
- 1 – 28.5” strip
- 1 – 32.5” strip
Block of the Month 2014-2015 – Stars
The Block of the Month shares the Bolton Fair theme – Stars.
The goals for BOM this year are – make interesting blocks, make blocks you’d be willing to donate to create a baby quilt, make quilts that will be shown at the Bolton Fair and then donated. Outreach will provide one fabric to coordinate the blocks and you to choose the other colors. As always, you can make the BOM without donating the block or donate a block using your own fabric.

Block of the Month 2013-2014 – Hearts
This year the theme is hearts. Each month there will be a new pattern for a 6″ block. Color scheme is your choice. Please bring your completed block to the next meeting for show and tell. These blocks are for you to have fun, learn a new technique and to keep. They can be turned into a wall hanging, potholders, or used for placemats.
