2013 - 2014 Block of the Month
 
 
This Block of the Month is designed for the beginning and moderately experienced quilters. All blocks are pieced, although some sections may be paper-pieced if desired. Patterns for 13 different blocks will be posted from December 2013 through December 2014. Also during that time, patterns for the pieced sashing and borders will be posted so that the quilt top can be assembled in December 2014.
Block instructions should be available by the end of the first week of each month.
 
 
Fabric Choices:
I will be making this quilt using scraps or may be made using a Focus Fabric and two or more coordinating fabric choices. The picture below shows the fabrics I'm using to make the sample blocks. In each months pattern I will give the size of pieces that are needed to make the block if you are using scraps to make the block. If yardage is prefered, I have put the fabric requirements below:


Yardage Needed:


BLOCKS
** Background (should be the same that is used in the setting blocks) - 2 yards
** Color 1 - 1 1/2 yards
** Color 1a - 1 FQ (this should read darker than color 1, but be in the same color family)
** Color 2 - 1 1/2 yards
** Color 2a - 1 FQ (this should read darker than color 1, but be in the same color family)
** Color 3 - 1 FQ, (this will be used as an accent, and should go with color 1 and 2)



Sashing and Setting Blocks
** Color 1 (shown in red) - 1 1/4 yards
** Color 2 (shown in blue) - 3/4 yards
** Background (shown in white) - 5 yards



Backing and Binding for the quilt as shown -
** Backing - 4.5 yds
** Binding - 3/4 yd

Note: Yardage amounts needed are estimated high so that hopefully you don't end up short
