For the 2018 Block of the Month you
can work on your own project, donate blocks for charity quilts
or do a little of both. Each month one or two block patterns
will be provided for a total of 20 different star blocks. They
will vary in difficulty. For some you may want to make practice
blocks. Turn those in and they will be incorporated in charity
quilts. All of the blocks finish at 12" x 12" (12-1/2"
x 12-1/2" unfinished). Several different settings are given
so you can pick and choose which and how many stars you want
Just as in 2017, videos will be available. The piecing of each
block will be in a separate video so you will only need to watch
the video for the block you want. The blocks made in the videos
will be scrappy and incorporated into one or more charity quilts.
Hard copies of the instructions will be available at the guild
meetings. The pdf instructions for each month will be available
free at www.CatDenMountainQuilts.com/bom-2018.html for two months.
Be sure to get your copy as there will be a charge of $2 for
past months. For example, the January installment will be free
through February. Starting in March there will be a $2 fee for
Guild members should look in their newsletters
for a coupon code to download the PDFs for free.
