Relief Society Block of the Month

For those of you who will be joining me in our Relief Society quilt class here is a little preview of what we are going to be working on this year. We had planned on doing a life quilt, but because many people were interested in the class who had never sewn we decided to do a basic quilting class. We will be starting with a simple nine patch. Each block will be 12 inches finished. 12 1/2 before it's set in the quilt. The quilt will be a large throw size. If you would like to make more blocks to make the quilt bigger that will work too!This is the block for March. Many patterns call for flying geese, which is what these arrows are called, as a sub block. The finished quilt will look similar to this quilt. This quilt is one that my friends each did a block to give to every other person doing the quilt. Although the quilt we make will not use these exact blocks the finished quilt will be a sampler like this. There are many different ways to finish your quilt and we will talk about that as we go along.
