Chunk of the Month

March began with a new mystery quilt activity designed by Julia McLeod, who brought us our two Lone Robin activities. Each month Julia will provide a new PowerPoint of the Chunk, which will be revealed at Quilters Gather. Participants will sew four or eight Chunks each month, then set aside those Chunks for future assembly.

At the end of six months, the quilter will have 44 Chunks, which will create a 48” square quilt. Julia will provide yardage requirements and measurements for each Chunk. She will suggest a variety of settings for the Chunks. No two quilts will look the same!

Total yardage needed for the 48" square quilt: 2 yards dark fabric, 1.5 yards light fabric.  Or you can use scraps.

No need to register to participate. When a new Chunk is introduced, the previous Chunk samples and patterns will be posted at the bottom of this page so you can join in anytime and catch up. The current month's description is on the right.
