Block of the Month

This is the information on the project for this years block of the month.  We meet the 1st Wednesday of the month.  The first meeting will be September 4th which is before the first guild meeting.  The attached file shows the finished quilt and also a picture of a queen sized quilt.  The fabric requirements are included.  Also, the first block we will work on is the Kaleidoscope Star and I have included the cutting directions, which should be done before the meeting.
Following is a description from the pattern:   
This pattern uses a combination of quilting techniques.  The stars are paper pieced.  The feathered star is completed by sewing short seams and then finishing it after the rest of the pieces are sewn.  The kaleidoscope star has an applique center circle. The border units use Seminole piecing.  In addition traditional piecing with quarter inch seams is used throughout.
I have been asked if quilters who are not members can join us.  That is fine as long as we don’t have more that 25 quilters.
The cost of the project is the price of the pattern & tax  ($37.00) plus a donation to the church for use of the room  ($5.00 each section).  We meet at Chapel Lane Church on Jefferson, 1st Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
If you are interested, please email me at, so I have an idea of how many patterns to bring.
See you there,
Linda McGibbon
