During January's meeting, we had two suggestions for doing a block or quilt of the month club.

The first is through Lucky Spool Media called "Mighty Lucky Quilting Club."

Mighty Lucky Member ButtonFrom their site:
Just as with a “Mystery Block of the Month Club,” when you join the Mighty Lucky Quilt Club, you’ll receive a single challenge or project idea each month. Unlike a mystery BOM club, though, these projects are focused on increasing your design skills rather than simply completing a specific block or section of a quilt.

There is already an active on-line community using #mightylucky to tag their progress and share their success!

Cost is $5/month or $50.

If you are an OCMQG member, we may be able to get a discount. Please contact Lisa if you're interested.

The second is The Splendid Sampler. As the project creators worded it: "The Splendid Sampler is a year long 100 block ‘Epic Adventure’ of quilt making." If you're up for a different type of challenge, why not check this one out and make it modern?

 This quilt along will have a Facebook group and will be using #TheSplendidSampler.

This is a free quilt along - the first block is on Valentine's Day and goes through February 2017. They will be publishing a book in March 2017, so the patterns will only be free until then.

What other quilt alongs interest you? Leave your comments below!
