August BOM - Anvil Block

This is one of the older quilt blocks, so it's kind of fun to try to give it a modern look with fabric choices and placement.

Blacksmiths (who used anvils) were big burly guys, so using Seahawks colors, gray, dark blue, lime green seems like a good fit.

Make it 12.5” unfinished, and as always, let the community quilt ladies do the final trim.

he tutorial link for for the block I showed at July Meeting seems to be broken. So I've made a couple from this tutorial. This one seems to give you more choices on fabric placement. Have fun!

July BOM - Low Volume Wonky Log Cabin

July's block is a Low Volume Wonky Log Cabin with slivers of some wild colored fabric. It is inspired by a post from Debbie Jeske at A Quilter's Table.

Blocks should be 12.5” unfinished - No need to trim. It's best if all blocks get their final trim with the same 12.5" ruler, so we’ll let the Community Quilt committee do the final trim!

Have fun with this one!

Last month we had 5 of the "birch tree" blocks brought in and could use a few more if anyone wants to contribute. Check out the May BOM - Improv Birch Trees post for details. They can be any size — square or rectangle. Black/White/Gray/Green and seeing as though we have an awesome blue block, let's add Blue to the mix.
