Block of the Month

Each year a different project is chosen. The participants meet in one of the classrooms at Trinity Church each month at noon on the day of the guild meeting. A different block or project is instructed each month. At the end of the year the student will have enough blocks to make a quilt, wall hanging, or various projects, depending on the plan for the year.
