BLOCK OF THE MONTH
2022 - 2023
Welcome to a new year of Block of the Month. This year’s theme will be Disappearing Blocks. Start with a very basic block, cut it into smaller pieces, rearrange them, and sew into a new, more complex pattern.
Questions? Call or e-mail and I will be happy to help.
Here’s to another year of fun !
2021 - 2022
Welcome to a new year of Block of the Month! I’ve had so much fun researching and planning 12 months of log cabin blocks that will be unusual, colorful, challenging and versatile. You can use your scraps or strip sets and, you’ll learn/practice foundation paper piecing (FPP).
There are video links which explain the techniques, and written step-by-step instructions if you’d rather read than watch another video. Once you’ve made one block (it only takes one evening), you’ll discover why so many quilters love FPP - your blocks will be precise (meaning non-ripply & perfectly square). Not having to cut hundreds of precise pieces is kind of freeing!
As you make your blocks, email a photo to Lisa, who will have progress posted on a BOM Gallery page. Then, there will be a prize drawing in May 2022.
I will be available to answer any questions, and even give in-person lessons for those who feel that they “don’t like Foundation Paper Piecing” or have never tried.
Let’s have fun!
