Welcome to Month Nine of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild 2022 Block of the Month Sampler! Only 2 months to go (including this one) until we have all the blocks to finish our quilts! I plan to have the last tutorial posted early, by the time we're at SewMe STL in October. I'll also be at the retreat in person if you need to as me (Em Komiskey) any questions.
Remember to post your block to Instagram with the hashtag #stlmqgbom before the usual October meeting date (no meeting in October) to be entered to win this month's prize. If you don't use Instagram, you may email a photo to the guild email.
This month, we will be making TWO 12.5-inch (unfinished) string blocks! If you've been looking ahead, I originally planned a different block with a similar look, but I didn't like how it was coming out, so I pivoted at the last minute. As a result, the graphic looks slightly different than the block. I'm writing this tutorial with specific widths for the strings, but if you're familiar with this block, you can totally improv it!
