Block of the Month 2013 – Block #6

Arkansas TravelerCongratulations to Lisa Lopez who won our beautiful black and scrappy Flower Garden Path blocks and to Vicki Ruggles who won our UFO drawing. She chose a Debbie’s Gift Certificate.

The block we’ll be working on at our September 19, 2013 meeting is the Arkansas Traveler block (shown at left). For instructions on how to make this block in the series, check out the following link:  Block #6.  This block includes regular piecing and paper piecing. *For colors see below.

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 Arkansas Traveler block we’ll be working on in September – we are asking you to use white on white (not cream or off-white) for the white and use floral fabrics for the diamonds in the middle.  Any color fabric as long as it contains flowers in the print.  Please make them scrappy.. We’ll exchange these blocks at our October meeting.

For the September meeting we’ll be exchanging our Star paper-pieced blocks made with solids from the same color family that we worked on in August.
