  GOALS are to build our expertise by:
   Increasing the difficulty of the blocks as the year goes along and
Highlighting a particular skill or technique each month.
   
 General Guidelines & Commentary:
  Blocks will not be collected this year. Do what you'd like with your blocks. Make a quilt and donate it to one of our projects, give it away as a gift for Christmas or another occasion or keep it for yourself. It is your choice.
  Each month bring your block(s) to the guild meeting and add it to the display of blocks so we can all see the eye candy. 
  The monthly deadline will also help you complete this project by the end of the year. 
  The full sampler with consist of 9 blocks given out December 2016 - August 2017. Instructions for the setting and borders will also be provided in September 2017 through November 2017 to provide you time to finish your quilt before the end of the year. 
  A wall hanging, wheelchair size quilt or large lap quilt can be made depending upon whether you make 1 or 2 of each month's blocks. 
  Fabric requirements will be provided for each block (if you are doing scrappy) and the yardage for the entire quilts (if you want to use a collection). 
  Instructions will be provided for 3" and 9" finished blocks. Full quilts using the provided setting will be:
Approximately 20" x 25" for 3" blocks - quite challenging; consider hand piecing
45-1/2" x 45-1/2" for 9" blocks - wheelchair quilt Approximately 57" x 72" for 2 of each 9" block in an on-point setting - lap quilt
 
  Diagrams will be shown in gray tones. You will need to pick your own color scheme. The gray tones will give you an idea of the placement and constrast of fabrics. 
  Have fun and enjoy the year's journey. 
  Bonny and Jan (or both) are both available via phone or email to assist. Videos of each month's installment will be available at www.catdenmountainquilts.com
