Block of the Every Other Month – Water Slide

Our newest block of the month is Water Slide, designed by our very own Pam Rocco!

How to get started: 

  • Access the Water Slide Templates and basic instructions written by Pam Rocco. Print the templates for use while making your block. Make sure your printer is set to print with no scaling, or 100% scale to ensure the templates are the correct size.
  • Use the photos and basic instructions below to complete your block.
  • Our color palette for this month is Arctic Winter.  Use solids or prints from the color palette below.
  • Complete as many blocks as you’d like.  Each block is an entry into the drawing for the block lotto.
  • Bring your finished block(s) to the January meeting for a chance to win them all during the Block Lotto!

We can’t wait to see what you make and what unique layout the winner will choose!
