30th Anniversary Block of the Week
To begin the 30th Anniversary celebration you are invited to participate in a 30 BOW (block of the week) Beautiful, Outstanding, Wonderful blocks.
These 12.5 inch (finished 12inch) blocks are a combination of blocks that some of the teachers have created, lottery blocks from previous years and some of the favorite blocks of the MAQ Board.
Starting January 13, 2017 you will receive by email your first block and should receive a block on Fridays until you have a total of 30 blocks. (Please be patient if you do not receive your block until Saturday or receive 2 blocks in one week). If you have not received any blocks, please contact us to make sure we have your correct email address.
The Thirty and Flirty theme is open to your own interpretation. You may use bright, wild or scrappy fabrics, thirties fabrics, batiks or maybe flirty to you means more subtle reproduction fabrics. The choice is yours!
You may make one block, thirty blocks or any number in between. The only requirement is that a minimum of 12 blocks must be in a finished project or quilt top to be entered in the special Thirty and Flirty door prize drawings. The quilt tops do not have to be quilted but the top or project (wearable, tote) must be completed or sewn together.
These blocks may be only used for the MAQ 30th Anniversary Quilt and that they may not be reproduced or sold.
We hope you will join us as we begin the countdown to MAQ in this way.
