May Block of the Month
Six month challenge
Each person gets a quilt block from me and must make something that incorporates that block. It can be a quilt, a bag, a mug-rug, or anything you want to make, as long as you use the block you’re given. You must use the whole block, however, you may cut the block up into smaller pieces or even take it apart. You can add as much of your own fabric as you want.
This challenge runs from April through September. At the October meeting, members bring in their creations to be judged. Projects do not have to be finished in order to be judged. Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!
If you want to join this challenge and did not get a block at the April meeting, send me your name and address and a block will be mailed to you or brought to the May meeting.
If you have questions, email me at email@example.com
Make a 12 1/2" block that has a floral theme. You can make a basket of flowers or just one flower. You can piece, paper-piece, embroider, appliqué, or use any method you wish, as long as the finished block has a recognizable flower or flowers.
Please use white or off white for backgrounds so the blocks will tie together better. Bring your completed blocks to the May meeting for a chance to win all the blocks that are turned in!
