Bonfire Block of the Month Club - July

Jul 1, 2016
Pin It The July Bonfire Block of the Month Club is a little different this month! I'm hoping you will take advantage of some "creative liberties" this month to pick your own favorites.

The Bonfire Sampler quilt requires 16 sampler blocks.  Each block is made in pairs, so we make 2 of 8 different block patterns.  The Bonfire chapter of the book only has 3 curve and 3 string blocks, so it is completely up to you which blocks you decide to use for the remaining 2 months.  I will show you what we chose, but please pick your favorites.  All the blocks in the book are interchangeable  - so make it your own!

JULY BLOCK - YOUR CHOICE.  We chose SISTER'S CHOICE  My mom and I decided we would each pick a month with the remaining 2 blocks for the quilt.  Lucky for me, my mom chose to include the block Sister's Choice in our quilt.  This block is my favorite block OF ALL TIME.  Hands  down.  (I even based Moccasin on this block if that proves my devotion!)  It's so classy.

Remember we are making Sister Blocks for the Bonfire Sampler (from the book Sister Sampler Quilts).  We will be swapping blocks at the end to make Sister Quilts. The Your CHOICE (we chose Sister's Choice) is the seventh block in the project. It's almost swap time!

*ALL of the blocks in the book are interchangeable, so if there is one you'd rather not do, you can always substitute ANY block within the book.  Make 2 blocks each month.

AnneMarie's Sister Pair of the Sister's Choice Block
Looooove.  I don't have anything more to say.  I simply adore this block.  It's sweet and simple.  Just perfection in my opinion.

My Partner (My Mom)'s Sister Pair of the Friendship Star Block
Again, more adorable blocks.  You just can't go wrong with this block.  It looks stunning pretty much wherever you put the lights and darks.
