We are Elaine Rottman and Bee Saunders, your new Block of the Month coordinators. We both have become interested in the modern quilt movement, with its clean, graphic aesthetic firmly rooted in traditional quilting. We look forward to bringing elements of this look to the Block of the Month patterns for the upcoming year. Each month we will have an easy-to-assemble pattern with clear directions and well-defined suggestions for fabric choices. Many months, we will provide a common background fabric, bringing unity to the blocks.
It is our goal to increase participation in the Block of the Month activity and to bring together sets of blocks that participants will be eager to win and take home and make up into a quilt. Should a winner not want to keep their set of blocks, however, Community Quilts has agreed to accept them to kit and pass along to other guild members.
