Mark your calendar for the 2020 Quilt Lovers Bingo date!
Completed BOM / Challenge 2018-2019
Block of the Month - For 9 months we will be doing a 12 “ (finished) Sawtooth Star but each month there will be a different 6” (finished) block for the center. Use any style of fabric that you want - 30’s, batiks, brights, scrappy.
Challenge - Put your 9 blocks together in any way that you want. Be creative. You can add more blocks, you can add different blocks. Use whatever setting you want. The only requirement is that the finished top must include the original 9 blocks. At the August Picnic we will have a show and tell of our finished top (quilting optional) with ribbons for Viewer’s Choice.
