October 2014 – Woven Bars


WovenBarsBlocks-SophieThe block for October is a 7 by 14-inch (finished size) block called Woven Bars.  It comes in two variations (called A-Block and B-Block) that, when alternated in a quilt layout, form the woven pattern.

These are my two first sample blocks.

Complete guidelines for this month are here:

Weaving Neutrals in October

If you make multiple blocks, you may use the fabrics in multiple blocks as long as each block has a unique 4-fabric combination.

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

The target set size for our winners will be 24 blocks.


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