Click on the block names to go to the block instructions. This grouping of blocks is made up of traditional block designs, Sew Many Blocks original designs, and designs from Marcia Hohn of Quilter's Cache and Janet Wickell. The links for Marcia Hohn and Janet Wickell's blocks go directly to the blocks on their respective websites.
These blocks were made by the members of the Education Committee.
Each month you can make up to two of the designated block, to submit for the monthly block drawing.
All submitted blocks must be 12 1/2" unfinished size.
Also this year, there is an extra challenge to take all of these blocks and make them in your own color choices and create a block of the month quilt to show in December 2014.
