Block of the Month...Change In Plans

Okay friends, after much consideration, this is how it will work. If you are interested in participating in the Block of the Month (Quilts of the Underground Railroad) e-mail me at So far my interested friends are Cynthia, Teresa, Lizzieann and Bev. I had contacted Eleanor Burns to see if Icould get a release to use their materials and haven't heard back from them yet. Then, I tried to make my own directions, that didn't work so good either. I figured if I couldn't follow them, then no one else would either! So, I will post the story on the featured block along with a picture of my finished block and then I will e-mail you a copy of the instructions. If you have the book, let me know if you don't want me to send you the instructions. I did get my block done by following the directions in the book! My goal is to get this started on Thursday, which will be the 20th. Then each month, I will post on that same date! Hope to hear from you soon.


  1. I can't wait to see what you all do, Michelle. I love quilts, and this sounds like fun. I don't quilt, but if I did, I would be doing this with you. Are you hand or machine quilting this???

  2. I have the book, so you won't have to send me the directions. Looking forward to this!! Thanks for doing it! Bev

  3. I have the book as well, so you won't need to send me instructions. Thanks. Also, I was just at Joann's and they have their books on sale 40% off and what did I see on the rack. This book. Go figure.
