Block of the Month

Block of the Every Other Month – Lockup – Due August 2022

Renee presented our next BOTEOM: Lockup, which was created by Riane Menardi Morrison & The MQG. Please follow the instructions found on the MQG website, but note our color choices for the SBAMQG blocks.

Finished block size: 8-½” x 4-½”

Fabrics: Any color/any scale stripes on a white to off-white background.

Substitute striped fabrics (any color and any scale) in place of the coral used on the block on MQG’s website. If you don’t have any striped 1-½” strips, Renee will bring some to the in-person June guild meeting to share.

Please use a white to off-white for the background color. Renee’s sample blocks are made with Kona Dove, for reference.

Renee Tallman shared her inspiration for the color scheme, which came from a scrappy stripes quilt she completed with Kona Dove background:
