President Block Challenge - October 2021

October 02, 2021 7:36 PM | Lynn Roginski (Administrator)

Each month of this year I will be introducing a new block. You may take this as an opportunity to build your own skills. Additionally, I encourage you to post your block creations either on our ACQ Community Facebook page or on Instagram using #ACQPresidentBlock2021. Each block you post will be entered into a monthly drawing for a fat quarter bundle. If you aren’t on social media – no problem, just send me an email with your photo (pond.jennifer@comcast.net). We will draw the winner at the next guild meeting, and you don’t need to be present to win (although we hope you will because we have a great line-up this year!). The winner of September’s block will be announced at the October meeting, and the October block winner at the November meeting. (Note from Newsletter Editor: Boy did I mess up not copying the September block instructions into the September newsletter article! If you made the September block you are a Block Star!!!)

The October block is the Bento Block brought to you by The Spruce Crafts. You can use precuts or yardage for the pattern depending on what you prefer and the look you want. Try it with scraps for a real challenge using the color and value tips you learned from Diane Harris at our August meeting. You’ll find the pattern and instructions here. Have fun with this block. Can’t wait to see what you do.
