Starry Starry Night - Block of the Month 2017
We're back! and looking forward to an exciting Block of the Month in 2017. The theme is Paper Pieced Stars made with batik fabrics. We are asking that you use a specific black batik for the background fabric of all your blocks. You will need 2 yards of Hoffman 1895 Black #4 and it is available at StitchCraft. The choice of all other batik fabrics is entirely your choice. You might want to plan ahead and decide to use just a few colors either in bright tones or more subdued tones or just make it scrappy. You will also need foundation piecing paper to print your patterns on. Make sure that your printer is set to “actual size” and that your test square measures 1” on your patterns.
The blocks for this year will be are posted below as they re made available. The protocol is:
- Make your block and bring it to the next meeting.
- Pick up your block at the end of each meeting unless yours was chosen as the "winning block" for the month.
- You will receive credit for each month you participate and be eligible for the final quilt made from each month's winning block. You get one credit per completed block. The drawing will be in November 2018.
- If you are unable to attend a meeting, you may bring your block to any following meetings for credit.
In December, 2017 we will present a plan to assemble all your blocks for your own quilt.
