Last year, everyone seemed to enjoy the Pizza Box Challenge, which involved making blocks every month for someone else. This year, since so many people enjoyed making a different block every month, we thought it might be fun to do a Block of the Month Challenge. With this challenge you will still only make 1 block each month. You, of course, could make more, but for one 55”x70” quilt, you will only need 1 block of each. Also, with this challenge, you will be keeping all of your blocks, and if you get behind, no one will know except you! At the end of the year if you follow along each month you will have a finished quilt top ready to be quilted, and cherished.
