September Block of the Month

This project is designed to be fun and inspire creativity.

At the Guild Meeting, a block pattern will be introduced. During the month, members may make the block, submit it at the next guild meeting and be entered in a drawing. The winner will receive all the blocks that are turned in during the meeting .

 (If there are many blocks, more than one winner may be awarded). Members may enter as many blocks as they wish.
