2007 Block of the Month / Quilt in a Year
The project Statement was " Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Jamestown and our state of Virginia" and our Committee Chairperson was Susan Palmer. The fabric color and print choice was left up to each quilter. Ten blocks were taught, but the individual quilter was free to do as many or as few as she pleased. She could do all of them and have a bed sized quilt, or some of them and have a wall hanging.
Many of the finished quilts were entered in the 2008 Quilt Show. View a slide show of the 2007 Block of the Month Quilts. (Close the slide show window to return to this page.)
Each instructor made two blocks, one to keep and one to donate for a quilt to be given away as the 2008 Quilt Show Grand Door Prize Quilt. View the Grand Door Prize Quilt.
Patterns and instructions for these blocks are in a folder in the guild library and may be signed out by members.
