Introducing our newest challenge, the Quiltmakers Block of the Month! This challenge features 13 blocks over 6 months (in case you want to set your blocks on point) and is a study in color value and its importance in creating a successful quilt! At each meeting, we will be revealing two blocks, with the last three being revealed at the March meeting. For instructions, patterns, and fabric requirements, head on over to the Challenge page.
NEW on the Challenge page - See two sample layouts along with fabric requirements for each setting. These are just two of many possibilities - be creative!
The raffle quilt for Quilt Plano 2020 will be made up of red and white blocks constructed by members of the guild. All blocks must be made from the fabric in the packets that were handed out at the January guild meeting. If you have the packet but have misplaced the instructions, you may download another copy here. Blocks are due back no later than the April guild meeting.
The guild has several open small groups that welcome new members. These include Art Quilters of Plano (monthly) and Dallas Games Marathon group (3-day day retreats). For more information, see the Small Groups page.
