Block of the Month 2018

We will be changing the BOM a bit this year....There will be twelve sampler blocks, thirteen "setting" blocks, a border, and TWO-COLOR WAYS to choose from. Each month you will receive a block and a setting block. Month 6 you will receive a block plus two setting blocks. Month 12 you will receive a block, setting block, and border fabric. All block parts will be pre-cut using the Accuquilt dies. It goes together like a dream. You MUST SIGN UP in order to participate. There will not be any extra blocks or drawings for blocks. Cost per month is $6. We are asking that you prepay at least by the quarter. So $18 every three months, or $36 twice (six months) or $72 for a onetime payment.


President's Challenge

Each year the guild president challenges the guild to creat a unique quilt based on a set of guide lines. In 2018, members are challenged to create a piece that best describes the street on which they live. There are no size restrictions. It must be a finished piece using fabrics of your choice. Check out the President's Challenge page for all the details.
