    TheQuiltingBoard Block of the Month, 2013

    Our theme this year is "Yes, We Can!"

    To track the blocks selected, please CLICK HERE.

    The idea is to select blocks that will challenge us to learn something new.

    A block will be posted on the 1st of each month.

    Sulabug has already selected a lovely block for us to kick off 2013.
    That block will be announced on 1 Jan 13.

    I have one picked out for 1 Feb 13.

    If anybody would like to volunteer to select blocks in the following months, please send me a PM.

    1. All registered and active members of the board are eligible to request a spot on a "pickers' list".

    2. Pickers will be responsible for either a link to existing directions for a block, or for providing directions for the block they've chosen. We all have different skill levels and technique preferences.

    When choosing a block, please check copyrights and terms of use set forth by the authors of the instructions. Pickers are strongly encouraged to pick only blocks from the Public Domain and instructions that do not place strict or severe limits on what we can do with the blocks we make using those instructions.

    As individual quilters, WE are responsible for making sure we read, understand, and comply with those copyright/terms of use statements.

    3. Anyone who sees the list and likes the blocks is invited to make them. However, only registered members of the board will be able to post pictures of the blocks they've made.

    4. If a posted block doesn't interest you, feel free to skip it.

    5. There will be two threads for each block. Both of them will be in the BOM section of the board. One thread for directions and discussion, and the other thread for pictures of the finished blocks. For the sake of keeping things sane all other threads will be moved or deleted.

    When posting a new BOM, please make sure to use the appropriate titles, such as:
    "October 1, 2007 - Drunkard's Path - Directions & Discussion"
    and
    "October 1, 2007 - Drunkard's Path - Photos"


    5. Pick and make any blocks you like from any lists you like. No matter how long ago a block was picked, you are still invited to post pictures when you make one. Just make sure to post your pics in the pictures thread for that block.

    6. Again - You don't have to be a registered member or on the lists to play along. The lists simply tell us which registered members have volunteered to take a turn selecting a block. Any registered board member can volunteer for a turn. Simply send a PM to PatriceJ, who will update the list.

    6. Our Block of the Month activities are NOT swaps.

    7. Have fun! Quilting is fun and Quilter's Rock!!!!!

    all i can say is that if you play along you will prove to yourself that you can do anything - even if you think of yourself as a beginner.

    we are setting out to leave "i can't" so far back in the dust it isn't so much as a speck in our rear-view mirrors.



    any volunteers who'd like to help me select our opportunities?

    Playing sounds like fun, but retirement is freeing me from making decisions that affect others. But playing and stretching my expertise sounds like a ton of fun!

    This should be fun and a great learning experience. The first quilting class that I took years ago was a sampler class. I still have the blocks. Among the things that I learned from that experience was to use good fabrics and the same background fabric. Too bad the teacher did not mention it.
