    Do a sampler and there are many blocks out there to pick from . Also Eleasnor Burns has a couple of sampler quilt books and I have used them.

    You could do all applique or all piecing... or mix it up. Applique, PP, Piecing, a new technique each month?
    What would the members of this group like to learn/participate in?

    If it is for beginner quilters, start with a simple block for 4 or 9 patch & each month get a little harder or more detail in the blocks.

    I've participated in 2 block of the month "clubs" at our LQS. The first one was a themed set called Whirlwind Romance and the second was one that addressed a different skill each time...hst, flying geese, Y seams, applique, curved seams, paper piecing, etc. I didn't get to do but the first 2 months on the second club, so I still don't know how to do Y seams or curved seams. I thought it was a great idea!

    Whatever blocks you choose remember some students may not know how to put borders on or bind or quilt. My sister took a class and they did not schedule a time for borders,quilting and binding. I had to teach her the rest.

    You might build it into the class or have a followup class after all the blocks are completed.

    Samplers are always a good choice. When I had the Featherweight Club. I had everyone do a sampler. We all got them finished and had a great time doing it. Especially on our Featherweights...

    I just took a sampler class at our LQS. It was the Underground Railroad sampler quilt by Eleanor Burnes & Sue Bouchard, we had to buy the book as the only requirement to take the class. I have made quilts before and learned a lot of quick ways to piece blocks. There were first time quilters and quilters with some experience, we all learned something and came away with a nice quilt and good friends.
