Traditionally, a block of the month program is all about making a sampler quilt. Each month a pattern is handed out. Each month you make a block for yourself. At the end of the program you have a pile of blocks intended to be used as the focus in one quilt.
Our program could work this way...
BUT ours has a twist!
Our Block of the Month (BOM) works much the same as a traditional BOM except the blocks are turned in for a chance to win enough of them to make a quilt.
Each month, members who choose to participate are given a kit and/or instructions for a block. That block is to be returned at the next monthly meeting. Members can make as many blocks as they want, but must take a kit for each one and return either the unfinished kits or the completed blocks at the next meeting. For each block completed their name is included in a drawing to win the blocks. One name is then drawn to win all of the blocks submitted.
