I won!

I won the Blocks of the Month yesterday at the Tarheel Quilters Guild meeting!


Each month Karen, our BOM chairlady, distributes a different quilt block pattern with instructions on colors/fabrics to use. She makes a sample to show at the guild meeting and encourages all the members to make a block. At the next guild meeting, members exchange their blocks for tickets for a drawing.

April’s block was “Dutchman’s Puzzle” in Karen’s favorite colors, turquoise and yellow. Twelve blocks were submitted; that’s a good number for a large lap quilt.


In my box of batiks I found a yard of turquoise fabric with splotches of yellow and majenta. Perfect for an outer border!


Do you have a suggestion for sashing and cornerstone colors/designs? If so, leave a comment below.

By the way, there is still room for you to participate in the North Carolina Quilt Symposium to be held in Fayetteville May 23 – 26. Find more info here on the Tarheel Quilters Guild website. I’ll be teaching “Black Forest Christmas” and “Get the Point.”
