2019 Guild Year has officially begun!
This year the Block of the Month has one goal: use modern aesthetic with a continuous theme to design a series of blocks that can be made into one quilt at the end of the year.
Here are the parameters for the blocks through the year:
- 12.5” square: each month the block will be 12.5”, or when sewn together equals 12.5” (6.5” blocks, when sewn in a group of will equal a 12.5” block);
- Grey or white: each month the BOM will have a grey or white element;
- Modern blocks;
- Make 2 blocks: one for the Guild raffle and one for you to keep.
We hope to encourage each member to make at least 2 blocks per month, one for the raffle and one to keep saving it for a single quilt at the finish of the Guild year.
Below is a quilt made out of Orlando MQG 2013 BOMs.
Please make 12.5 inch block in grey and white solids.
The block will have a square or a rectangle centred on the block. No diagonal or wonky lines. The square or rectangle can be of any size, therefore there are no specific cutting directions. A little bit of Improv! The photos below can help in guiding you with some ideas, but you are not limited to them.
