Last June, anyone in the Heart of Vermont guild was invited to create a 10" quilt block that would be used as the logo for the guild. Only two people entered four designs, but mine won! It was a takeoff on the traditional Moon over the Mountains block. I wanted something that could be machine or hand-stitched and that a beginner might be able to do. It can also be embellished.
Over the summer, Geri and I spent a little time creating instructions, and she scanned it for use on the guild nametags this year. I tried following the instructions to make the block in a different colorway, and I like it!
It's a little hard to see that I used three different black and white prints, and I buttonhole stitched around all the pieces. Before our Sept. meeting, I'll make copies for people to pick up on the membership table. We're going to have a block of the month this year, so this can be an "extra" for everyone.
