2019 Theme and April BOM

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.

April BOM

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.
