Block of the Month 2015-2016

For this year's Block of the Month, we will be using the Central New Jersey Modern Quilt Guild's 2015 BOM as inspiration. We say "as inspiration" because we are giving you the opportunity to build skills and go off the grid when completing this quilt-along. It's completely up to you. We're providing the measurements you need to create this block in one of three sizes -- 12", 6" or 18". Also up to you, is how many blocks you make each month. You can make 1 --- or 100! This is your quilt, so have some fun, challenge yourself, and lets build skills together!
