Block of the Month - 2021-2022


Our Block of the Month project was created by Catherine Gentile.  It is made up of eight 9” blocks.  This quilt uses two of each block. The blocks are rotary cut and  stitch up quickly.  Catherine choose to do the  center medallion as simple snowballs using background fabric and squares made from the block scrap- you may decide to go another way.  The border is paper pieced, also from block scraps.  The quilt finishes 60” square, a nice throw or wall size or expand it to whatever size you prefer.  


Download the pattern each month from this page.  We will be posted each block the the first of each month starting October 1st through May.
