Every other month a block will be presented and demoed by a guild member (or members) who volunteered to be in charge of that month’s BOTEOM, which will be made in the color scheme to be used. The months that blocks are due, names of the members that made a BOTEOM will be randomly drawn and the winner gets to take home everyone’s blocks! You are entered into the drawing the total number of times as blocks you made; if you brought two blocks, your name is entered into the drawing twice. Participation in voluntary and we encourage winners to use the completed blocks to make into a quilt, BOTEOM quilt finishes can be seen here!
