The block we’ll be working on at our August meeting is the Star block. For instructions on how to make this block in the series, check out the following link: Block #5. Mary provided the paper templates at the June meeting and will be bringing them again to the August meeting. Mary will also have a finished sample block at the August 22 meeting and will be demonstrating paper piecing technique.
Block of the Month Procedure
Make a block in your own colors and keep it.
If you wish to be part of our block exchange, make a second block in the designated color of the month. For the August meeting we’ll be exchanging our Flower Garden Path block that was black and scrappy (made back at the June meeting.)
For the Star block we’ll be working on for next month – we are asking you to use solids from the same color family like the block at left (whatever color family you choose – for example: dark red, light red, pink OR dark purple, medium purple, light purple) and solid white. We’ll exchange these blocks at our September meeting.
- April – Star of Virginia – Angi Wiggins
