President Blocks

Once again, it’s that time of the year to honor our Leader with President blocks. Coleen O’Kane has requested a red and white quilt. Because Coleen has chosen a specific pattern, we are going to do things a little differently. This year you will be able to choose if you want to make Block #1, Block #2 or a 4 patch using gradations of reds and whites. Because a specific number of each blocks are needed, you will need to sign up to get the instructions for the specific block you have chosen. It is being done this way to ensure that Coleen is receiving the correct amount of blocks so she can complete her desired quilt. Please contact Becky Harvey at 815-742-7013 to make arrangements to receive your packet of instructions. Thank you!
