Any current GQCCC member is welcome to participate!
How It Works
Each month, the Block of the Month chair selects a block pattern. The pattern has been constructed with fabric to check the accuracy of the block prior to being published.
New block patterns will be announced each month at the general meeting and made available to members through the website, email, and the newsletter. You can make as many blocks as you wish each month, but only one drawing block entry allowed per person. Winner takes all!
Enter your block for the drawing by placing in the designated envelope in the Farmhouse, mail to the GQCCC address in the directory, or turn them in at an in-person general meeting. Drawings dates will be announced, but generally will be at in-person general meetings.
You can also keep the blocks for your own project - complete this year’s blocks and make a quilt from them. You could coordinate your fabrics or make it scrappy. Or use patterns from past years to make a quilt, and consider donating to the Quilts to Share and Patriotic Quilts programs -- they are always looking for donation quilts!

Early in its founding, GQCCC adopted the classic Weathervane block as its logo. The colors have changed over the years, but the characteristic contrasting color on the southeast corner has been constant.
Volunteers at the annual quilt show are required to wear aprons with this block, to identify themselves as members to assist visitors. Below are three patterns that can be downloaded to construct blocks to adorn an apron (members only).
