We just had a MQG contact us (Hi, Central Jersey MQG!) about using our BOM from 2012.  And since we've migrated from Ning (our original website) and our content there is no longer available, we realized it's time to upload all this info to our blog so that it's available for everyone!
In 2012, there were very few Modern BOM programs.  But the members of the KMQG wanted to try out some different, modern blocks. Seeing a need, members Robin S. and Emily D. set to work compiling a Block of the Month for our little guild.  These patterns are always free to use. We simply ask that you not charge for the patterns and of course we always appreciate a reference to our guild!  Please don't hesitate to e-mail us if you ever find a broken link or need more information about a block.

One of these patterns IS NOT original:  The "Circle of Geese" block is by and we just included it because we loved it so much!  So please refer to her terms of use regarding those templates. (her terms of use are on the actual template, I think)
