Red Violet is the new color to explore this month.
You don't need to register. Just join in at any time!
This exercise may become the beginning of a series. It can be as small as a postcard, 12" x 12", or just a block for a future quilt. Of course, you can make more than one piece on any given month.
For more information go here.

Chunk of the Month #3.
This mystery quilt activity is designed by Julia McLeod, who brought us our two Lone Robin activities. Each month Julia will provide a new Chunk pattern, This activity will continue through August at which time you will have all the blocks needed for a 48" square quilt. Each new chunk will be demonstrated at the monthly Quilters Gather and instructions will be posted on the Chunk of the Month website page. Participants will sew four or eight Chunks each month, then set aside those Chunks for future assembly.
Intrigued? You do not have to register for this activity...just join in. More details here.

Join EBHQ for a Color Wheel Study
Each month a new color will be selected to explore. You might want to study the monthly color using one of the harmonious color schemes like monochromatic, analogous, complementary, split complementary, triad, or tetrad. You are welcome to do just one-color scheme or even all of them.
Join in at any time! This exercise may become the beginning of a series. It can be as small as a postcard, 12" x 12", or just a block for a future quilt. Of course, you can make more than one piece on any given month. For more information go here.
Signups are closed and the 2022 Round Robin is underway. The exchanges take place at the walkway in front of Bay Quilts at various Sundays at 2 p.m.
Read the guidelines for the 2022 Round Robin here. Check out the 2021 EBHQ Round Robin gallery page for examples of last year's Traditional and Improv quilts.
