Block of the Month Programs Build Skills

Martin's Dream, 74 x 87 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2002.

Now is a great time to enroll in a block of the month program. Most quilt stores and some online sites sponsor them. In a block of the month program, you complete a block each month. At the end of the year, you assemble the blocks into a quilt. For beginning quilters, this is a great way to build your skills because working on one block is not as overwhelming as trying to finish an entire quilt.

Martin’s Dream by O.V. Brantley was the result of a  block of the month program sponsored by the Quilts and Fixins Quilt Shop in Jonesboro, GA. She added her own border of children holding hands to make this quilt uniquely hers.
