Quilt Block of the Month

For 2009 we have joined two clubs. One is a scrapbooking club and the other is a quilting club.
For the Quilt Block Club, you are given the materials and directions to make one 12 inch quilt block per month. At the end of the year you can put all the blocks together to make a quilt. You can also use them to make tab curtains, table runners, or anything else. You pay five bucks to join and as long as you bring your completed quilt square back each month, you get the next kit free. If you don't make it, you just pay the $5 to rejoin.

There are two different patterns that you can choose from. I am doing both and MJ is doing just one of them. Here are the two fabric patterns for January.

All the pieces cut and laid out to be pieced together.

Here is MJ working hard putting hers together. are our finished blocks - mine are the top two and the bottom one is MJ's.

We are really happy with how they turned out. We are looking forward to going back on the first Saturday in February to get our new kits.

I'll save the scrapbook kits for another post when we get something done with them.

My Mother is a quilter. She has one of those 8ft long arm sewing machines. She's apart of a quilting B so she really wanted me to also have the same hobby. I made 1 full quilt myself and another quilt I made all the block but paid another woman to put the blocks together. I just don't have the patients.

Your blocks look great. Have fun. Can't wait to see the finished product.

beautiful!! i love quilting! we made two - both as wedding gifts. after that, we vowed the next one would be for our own bed. of course, its a little harder to get motivated when there is no deadline, so we never started that project. the quilting club is a great idea - maybe i'll look for one in my area!
