Block of the Month

We love to see Block of the Month quilts at our Show and Tell. 

Wendy won these blocks in April last year, and one year later she's turned them into this lovely quilt.

Each month our members are given a pattern for a block, and each block they bring back equals one entry in the draw to win them all.

Here's another example of a block of the month being turned into a finished quilt.
