North Wind Quilters Guild
Block of the Month
Instructions for making each months block will be provided in the monthly newsletter. There will also be a demonstration/workshop on the morning of the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
Each month you make two or more blocks. One block goes into the Block Of The Month drawing at the General Meeting and the other block is available to purchase the day of the drawing by the winner of the blocks. If the blocks are not purchased by the winner we save them to sell at the Quiltique at the Quilt Show.
We are also asking members who do participate with the BOM program to make another block or two to help out Community Service. There is no limit to the number of blocks you can make each month to donate to Community Service! Each and every block is much appreciated. As you know our Guild is all about Community Service.
Every few months there will be a patriotic block in either red, white and/or blue fabrics and the other months will be a block for a child or adult. Every month the BOM chairperson will specify if it is a Patriotic block or a block for a boy/girl or adult.
Any extra blocks that are turned in will be used to make "Quilt of Gratitude" quilts or other quilts to be distributed by our Community Service Chair.
For more information about the BOM program you may contact the Block of the Month Committe Chairperson: Susan Hogan. or Meta Bonnell.
