Call for Blocks

Two Kissimmee families recently lost their homes in a fire.  Beth and the Calls for Blocks Subcommittee are collecting blocks to make seven quilts for two adult males, three adult females, and two boys, ages 6 and 10.

Sarah's blocks

The blocks are inspired by the "Missing U" blocks in the amazing Sunday Morning Quilts book by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison.  A tutorial for the color slab blocks can be found on Cheryl's blog post (used with Cheryl's permission).   Each block is many hues of 1 color with a square/rectangle of white and should be trimmed to 12.5" to finish as 12".  The blocks are due by the June meeting.  If you are on Instagram, please use the hashtag #justoneslab.  Thank you for your participation.

  1. Thanks for the clarification. I'll add a couple of inches to my blocks.
