December 2014 – Big O (in quarters)


forblogThe block for December is a 7-inch square (finished size) block that is one quarter of a 14-inch Big-O block.

Debbie made these four Big-O quarters (AKA 4 blocks)

Complete guidelines for this month and link to the pattern are here:

It’s Like a Big Hug

If you make multiple blocks, you may use the same very dark background fabrics in multiple blocks, but each block should contain a unique quilter’s choice fabric for the quarter O.

The maximum number of blocks you can make and enter for chances in the drawing this month is TWELVE

The target set size for our winners will be 48 blocks.


  • To receive the January sneak peek, post photos of your blocks no later than December 24 , 12 PM (Noon) on the US East Coast
  • To be included in the drawing, post photos of your blocks no later than December 31, 12 PM (Noon) on the US East Coast
