November Charity BOM: Maple Leaf

We had such a great showing for the September Rail and Posts BOM.  54 blocks were donated!  The guild gave away a set of 20 blocks so Susan and kept 34 blocks for our charity quilts.  We also gave away the October Quilty Box to Christi.  What a fun prize!  Tabatha, the founder, lives in Miami and curates a collection of special items to be delivered to your door each month.  She loves us so much, she's giving a special $5 discount to AMQG members.  Please email me if you'd like to get the code.  Another neat factoid: Tabatha is a childhood cancer survivor and she donates 5% of Quilty Box proceeds to Quilts for Kids.  If you are interested in having your product (yes, you!, aspiring pattern and fabric designers) as part of the Quilty Box, contact the company directly.  More awesome prizes will be given away in the following months, so stay tuned.  The grand prize for the most blocks donated will be a big V & Co. Aurifil thread box!!




Emily brought the pieced August BOM top and it's awesome (if I do say so myself).  Jessica is going to be quilting this lovely for us.

Instructions: November Maple Leaf BOM



Without further ado, the November BOM is the glorious Maple Leaf.  Angela at All Patched Up has a wonderful tutorial for making the 12.5" unfinished block, so please refer to her site for directions.  You'll need a 7.25" square of both background and focus fabrics for her method, plus additional smaller pieces.

Please use leaf colored fabrics for the leaf, and low volume prints or solids for the background.  

Need a quick challenge rule refresher?
  • Bring as many blocks as you like
  • Each block = 1 entry to win a group of the blocks
  • The rest of the blocks will be made into an outreach quilt
  • Win prizes while giving back to the community!
  • If you are unable to make it to the meeting, you can still play.  Contact me for more info at communications@austinmodernquiltguild.com
