Block of the Month


This Is How It Works


Each month full instructions for a new block will be given in the

Borderlines Newsletter and on the RVQG Website at rvqg.com. 


You are free to download and print the instructions for the Block
of the Month. If you choose to make the block, bring it to the next
Guild meeting, show us your beauty and enter your name into the
Fat Quarter draw. If you are unable to attend the meeting or it’s a
Zoom Guild meeting just take a photo of your block and send it
to me at BCQuilts@gmail.com to be included in the BOM monthly
Fat Quarter draw.

If you choose to make just one or two of the Blocks that’s O.K.
There is no obligation to make the entire project.   However, if
you decide to do so, by the end of the current 2022-2023 Guild
year, you will have made a fabulous Quilter-on-the-Go Project
Bag, perfect for toting all those must have for any quilter-on-the-go.

See you at the meeting!
