When: Fourth Wednesday of the month at 10:00 AM. See events calendar.
What: A block of the month club where you work independently on the block in advance of the meeting and then share your progress during the meeting--everyone is welcome to see the progress and offer advice and encouragement (you don't have to be working on a BOM)!
The quilt for 2022 is Star Sampler, by PieceandQuilt.com here.
Group Contact Person: Mary Lemon, Joanne Gilch
SQC Members: To be added to the BOM group, email SuncoastQuiltingCircle@yahoo.com and put BOM in the subject line.
Blocks will be done by rows, top to bottom, starting with the Union Star in the upper left corner for April 2022 as block 1.
Block 1 Notes: In testing and checking the Union Star, the author/quilter did not include in the white fabric cutting instructions….
WHITE FABRIC CUT: 8 2 1/2” squares
(they are the corners of the pink 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” that make the pink flying geese) Mark them diagonally on the wrong side of white fabric, fold or press a diagonal line, or use a tool like "Diagonal Seam Tape" to let you sew without marking each piece of fabric.
Block 4 & 10 Notes: As an alternate to these blocks, you may choose use Moda Block Heads 3, block 2, by Sherri McConnell "Sunshine Star". Email one of the group leaders if you need the pattern. The pattern for Block 10 "Christmas Star" from Piece and Quilt is missing.
Block 5 Notes: There are no pattern corrections. Here is the PDF for Block 5 Morning Star.
Block 6 Notes: There are no pattern corrections. Here is the PDF for Block 6 Pinwheel Star.
PDF for Block 7 Wandering Star.
PDF for Block 8 Aunt Mary's Star.
