Block of the Month

Block of the Every Other Month – Cornered Block – Due January 2021

This month’s BOTEOM is “Cornered Block” and is the MQG block study for October-November-December designed by Jamie Siel for MQG, colors and organization by Mickey Beebe for SBAMQG.

The color pallet that won the August vote is “New Mexico.” We postponed the winning color to November in favor of having our Community Quilt block be our BOTEOM for November. For this block, please use solids; they do not need to be these exact colors from Kona, but try to remain close to this palette.

New England Color Palette

Examples from Mickey:

The “Cornered Block” is on the MQG website –  here (you will need to log in) – or click on Resources and it’s 3/4 down the page.
This block is easy to cut out (most of the pieces are cut from 2 1/2” strips) and quick and fun to make.

Pick 4 out of the 6 colors in this month’s color palette: Celestial, Blue Jay, Grass Green, Lime, Tangerine, and Grellow.

Follow the directions on the MQG website. Press all the seams open.
The Cornered Block finishes at 16” square. The block is made up of 3 inner block elements and 2 sashings.

For a chance to win all the blocks you need to return the entire block, which consists of 3 completed inner block elements and the 2 pieces of sashing.

The blocks are due at our January 5th meeting.
