At every guild meeting a new block pattern is usually available. Each new team chooses a different method for this activity. Sometimes, it is a kit made up each month to purchase, and other times it is a pattern to make your own version of the block. Sometimes, when you return the completed block, you have a chance to win all the blocks when the tickets are drawn. Other times, you could make a block to turn in and at the same time, make a block from your own fabrics to produce your own quilt. Whichever way the team chooses, it is always lots of fun and you have a chance to make a block you haven't tried before.
