BOQ : Mosaic

If you have some  free time this summer, why not get in early and construct a Mosaic Block or two for the February General Meeting?

This 8 inch block (finished) has a very popular name. In fact there are more than 40 block designs with the name "Mosaic". It really refers to a block that has a centre square, which becomes built up to a larger square with the addition of triangles or other shapes.

Erica Spinks, our BOQ Co-ordinator has asked for turquoise and purple fabrics combined with white-on-white to produce this easily rotary cut, dramatic block.
It's not all that difficult to construct : no "Y" seams, as it is diagonal rows that are sewn to each other.
What a great scrap quilt it will be for the "winner takes all" at the Feb Meeting.
Full instructions can be found on page 37 of the November 2014 Template. 

If making more than one block please remember to label each block with your name/address (eg do not pin 4 blocks together with one label, as this causes extra work for the Meeting Co-ordinator copying them out at the last minute to go into the "draw")
