Quilt in a Box Block Party - Starting in July!

Quilt in a Box Block Party

In an effort to expand the group category in the 2019 quilt show and have some fun….consider joining us for block party/quilt in a box program that will run from July 2017 throughthe big reveal in June 2018 at our annual anniversary party. We will exchange every month but December. We will only exchange at the meeting… No swapping any other time unless you cannot make a meeting.

You can make the same block every month or change it up. All blocks that are made throughout the year will be in the box so you can see them before you decide. We will be making 12 inch finished blocks. Just a reminder you are only committing to making ONE block a month except for December.

In order to be consistent please do the following…..

  • Buy an Art Bin from Joann’s using your 40% coupon. Put your name of the out-side of box.
  • Include 1 ½ yards of a background fabric plus a ½ yard of consistent fabric. These two fabrics have to be used in each block for consistency. This way you do not get a civil war block with a Christmas block with a 1930’s block.
  • Place an envelope or file folder large enough to hold the finished blocks so you cannot see them inside the box.
  • Put TWO COMPLETED BLOCKS in your box!!!!!!
  • Include any instructions or suggestions of what you would like.

I will bring my box for everyone to see what is involved before we begin in July. Please send me an email if you are interested in participating. If we enough to do more than one group, we will do more.

I look forward to your participation.
