2016-BOM
 
At the 2015 December Membership Meeting, the Education Committee presented the 2016 Blocks of the Month in a special Style Show! "Before" blocks were pinned to the front wall and "Finished" blocks were slowly revealed below along with a completed quilt using the block (not necessarily in the 2016 BOM colors). All blocks and quilts were made by the Education Committee. You can see more pictures of this fun event in the Education Gallery.
 
Reminders
Each month you can make up to two of the designated block or two pairs if the pattern creates two blocks, to submit for the monthly block drawing.
 
This year the block sizes vary each month! All submitted blocks must equal the unfinished size listed under each block.
