“Let’s Get Going Challenge”
Patching HST blocks for the next year is the challenge. You will be provided drawings each month for the layout of the blocks. A young computer programmer, Mark Jason Dominnus, did a woo to his date and created a drawing using 72 different blocks containing only half square triangles. She later made a quilt from his drawings and then became his wife. Go figure. The challenge is to make them all using your color choices and fabrics in 12 months – (that is only 6 a month). You can do it. Stop in to see the finished quilt in person that was created using only HST. The sample has 6” blocks, but they can be made any size. Use the infamous Grunge, or one of the many fat quarter packs for your creation. The possibilities are endless. They are adorable.
We will meet to showcase your blocks and to pick up the next month's pattern on the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm. If you choose not to come to the meeting, the pattern can be picked up after that date in the store.
The cost for the sew-a-long for the year is $15. This covers the monthly patterns. If you purchase fabric for this project in the store, you will get a class discount of 15%.
We will post our blocks as we go online and you can too using the hashtag #SO2020HST.
Let’s plan a big reveal in February 2021. Join us for the “Let’s Get Going” send-off for this challenge.
