Charity Block of the Month: Easy Triangles!

April BOM: Easy Triangles

I know last month's triangles were kind of rough, so here's an easy version to get you going!  It's time to pull out all the stops for the grand prize Aurfil thread box! 

Ok, so here's a quick reminder of how this game works.

  • 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
  • In May we'll be giving away a travel size Olfa set!
  • The grand prize for most donated blocks is a full size set of Aurifil thread by V & Co!


Please use any combination of (solid or print) blue, orange, and green with a neutral solid or print background.  You do not have to make yours scrappy unless you want to!
