Welcome to the 2022 St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month Sampler Quilt!
Each month for 10 months, we will introduce a block (or blocks) for you to complete in a color palette of your choice. The blocks will give you the opportunity to practice different quilting skills or techniques each month. If you complete all ten months, you will have a 60 inch throw quilt at the end of the year.
Blocks will cover a variety of sizes: 6 inches, 9 inches, 12 inches, 18 inches, and 24 inches. You can use this coloring page to plan your quilt.
Win prizes! We hope you will quilt along with the guild through the year and create your own sampler quilt. Each month that you complete the blocks by the meeting date, you will be entered to win a prize. Post your completed blocks to Instagram with the hashtags #stlmqgbom and #stlmqg or email a photo to the guild email at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter the prize drawing.
Anyone who completes our quilt by next January will be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE of edge to edge quilting on their finished quilt provided by our own Dottie Vaughn. If you need longarming services in the meantime, please consider supporting Dottie by contacting her at 636-795-8712.
There's a twist! If you don't prefer the style of a block, or don't want to tackle that technique, you may choose up to 2 months for a "free pass" to complete a block of your choice or to recycle an orphan block of the same size. Post the block (or blocks) you will include in your sampler quilt, and you will still be entered in the prize drawing for that month. You will need to remember to keep the block size consistent with the block of the month so that your sampler quilt will still come together at the end of the year.
We are looking forward to quilting this year and can't wait to see your sampler quilts!
