Block of the Month: February 2015

Here's our next block due in February 2015, Octagonal Orb Quilt Block by Elizabeth Hartman

The color scheme is Purple, Pink, and Gray. (Hm...seem familiar to those scrap baggies we swapped?) ;-) Solids and prints are fine. You may order the color of the rows in any order. (For example, purple-gray-pink, as in the picture, or gray-pink-purple etc.)

White for the background and center pieces.

Here is an example of the block in the chosen color scheme:





Every month, we'll show a block at the meeting and post a link to a tutorial here and on our blog, along with a designated color scheme. If you want to give it a try, make the block and bring it to the next meeting with your name on a piece of tape on the back. Your block acts as your lottery ticket, and if we draw your name, you get all the blocks! If we have more than 20 blocks we'll draw 2 winners. You may make up to 3 blocks, giving you additional entries. If you win, you must show us a FINISHED PROJECT (not just a top!) in order to win again, but you can still make blocks for future months.

The blocks might be a little challenging and out of your comfort zone, but hey, you have the chance to win lots of finished ones with a fraction of the work!
If you have any questions, just ask!
