COLOUR NOTES QUILT BLOCK – BLOCK #1
Finished blocks on parade.
The block of the month program begins this month (October) and continues to June 2024. For this series, there will be a total of 9 all new blocks, from October to May, with ideas for sashing and borders available in June. Individual finished blocks will measure 12” square.
Each month, you will receive a dedicated email a week ahead of the monthly meeting...it will contain the pattern and instructions for the latest block along with a layout diagram, and a photo with a LIGHT background. The sample shown at the meeting will have a DARK background so you can see both options.. Please review the information, and print it out for future reference. The blocks will range from beginner to intermediate to help encourage our new quilting members to participate.
Fabric requirements will be block by block, so dig into your stash, pick a colour scheme, or go completely scrappy...it’s up to you. Background fabric...if you wish to do all blocks with the same background fabric, you will want to have 1.5-1.6 metres on hand to do all the 9 blocks...this includes a little bit extra for any oopsies that may occur.
Each assembled block will measure approximately 12 1/2" square. But not everyone uses exactly the same seam allowance, so its more important to be consistent than anything else. Don't trim any blocks until they are all completed.
At each of the monthly meetings, you will be able to view a sample of the monthly block...and Nancy will be available during the break to answer questions.
