Block Of The Month: A Quilt-Along

I've been a personal fan of Canton Village Quilt Works for quite some time and follow Jackie's blog religiously.  She decided back last summer to host a Block of the Month ....started in September.....but it's not too late to get the blocks and play catch-up! 

Jackie started out with Kaffe fabrics from her shop but this is meant to be a scrap quilt, so any fabric from your stash, scraps or collections would work just fine. 

Jackie invited a pretty amazing slate of diverse quilters from some of our favorite blogs to participate in the block designs and these five block'll recognize the names....have already designed and posted their blocks. 

September:  Sherri McConnell - A Quilting Life
October:  Vicki Welsh - Field Trips In Fiber
November:  Stephanie Dunphy -  Loft Creations
December:  Pat Sloan - The Voice of Quilting
January:  John Adams - Quilt Dad

and to look forward to in the  months to come are blocks and tutorials from these quilt designers:

February:  Amy Smart Diary Of A Quilter
March:  Allison Harris Cluck, Cluck, Sew
April:  Amy Lobsiger Mrs. Schmenkman Quilts
May:  Cathy Underhill Cabbage Quilts
June:  Pam Vieira-McGinnis Pam Kitty Morning
July: Victoria Findlay Wolfe Bumble Beans, Inc
August:  Amy Ellis Amy's Creative Side
September:  Sarah Fielke The Last Piece
