August 2014 Block of the Month

SAMQG Block of the Month (BOM) is a really really popular program.  Our BOM Chair, Kelly, has consistently coordinated blocks that are not only super fast & really easy, but they are contemporary and they yield a quilt block that "can be trimmed."

That last part is really important.  All the blocks she's organized are designed that if you need to trim the block down, because it was created on a different sewing machine, by a different stitcher, you won't lose the integrity of the block.  You will not be chopping off points or anything like that.

The last couple months we have had so much participation that the winner pretty much leaves with a full size quilt. This one above appears to be missing a block in the corner, but we have a member who was un-able to make the meeting & still made two blocks to throw in.

Now that is a happy winner right there!

Our September Block of the Month is a blue or green striped rectangle.  You'll have to check back or check the FB page for directions and sizes.
