For our first month I have selected 3 blocks. The first block's name just seemed it belong so here it is,

Bees and Fields Block

The next two blocks are a variety of difficulty for some, so give them a try:

Snow Church Block

Snow Blossoms Block 

Good luck and enjoy!

Post your block pictures when you are done.

The instructions for making each of the above blocks can be found at http://www.quilterscache.com/QuiltBlocksGalore.html. They prefer you to come to their sight rather than create a link. It will be worth your journey!

Melody - this sounds like fun - I am going to go look at the first block and figure out the fabrics I have to pull for a new BOM quilt for 2013 - I do love BOM programs and doing the same block with others sounds like fun.   Are you going to be giving any help with the instructions?

My friend Candy has been talking about a quilt idea that I thought some of you may be interested in doing. After piecing these blocks together, go a head and quilt it and bind it, making a potholder. Then each block potholder could be stitched together for a quilt. When you get to the quilting part you can hop over to the FMQ group for pointers on Free Motion Quilting techniques.

Hi all. I am going to give this a try, right now my only commitment is the round robin.  Do we make 1 or 2 blocks a month or is that up to us?

Thank you Barbara.  I am thinking that I will make two blocks a month; one in Christmas prints and one in patriotic prints. That way I will have two quilts (UFO's LOL) by next December.
