2017 - 2018 Block of the Month

Instructions using the BOM patterns

From Cheryl Gross:

These instructions were written by someone else so I have tried to double check for any mistakes.  The directions mention borders and binding for a calendar.  This would be if you choose to do individual blocks as a stand-alone wall-hanging.   The original pattern has a design where you put it on a background and hang a monthly calendar below.  

Leave the borders and bindings off if you plan to create 12 ½” blocks for a quilt.  The traditional pieced block goes together best if you use a scant ¼ inch seam.  When you print off the patterns for the foundation paper pieced blocks check the size of your paper pattern before you sew.
