July 2013 Block of the Month

July's BOM is the Snail Trail. Thanks for the suggestion, Yanick! This traditional block is fun and easy. Snail Trail dates back to the 1920s and 30s and is also known as the Monkey Wrench, Indiana Puzzle, and Friendly Hand. The pattern can also yield two blocks if you use four different fabrics. Remember, for each block you make, you get that many chances to win them all. Our color palette will be red, black, white, and grey. Any combination. You can find a step-by-step tutorial right here.

Escargots à la Bourguignonne recipe
After you finish your block(s), whip up some escargots. Bring your finished blocks to our July 3, 2013 meeting. If you have any suggestions for the BOM, let us know.
