I belong to an awesome Guild here in Northern Virginia!
A member of the Centreville chapter of Quilter's Unlimited, today is an exciting day. After a 2 month break, tonight is the first meeting of our New Year.
One of the many activities we offer is a Block of the Month program.
My friend Lisa is the committee chair & hostess for this upcoming year.
Each month a new block is presented for guild members to make.
It's a wonderful way to stretch your sewing skills and try new techniques.
This year, I've decided make all of the blocks to create a Sampler Quilt.
I have no idea what the block designs will be each month, but I've pulled from my stash a variety of blue, brown, tan & cheddar prints that I think play nicely together. I will use a collection of creamy tonal prints from P&B's Apple Cider collection for the backgrounds.
And here is my finished September block to bring to the meeting for Show & Tell.
It's an original block design by Lisa called "Back to Spools".
every quilt tells a story...
