Our November Block of the Month will be for another veteran quilt, still keeping with the Red/White/Blue fabric theme. We will be making a simple square in a box. The fun thing about this block will be the variety in the sizes of the square in the center - the more variety the better. 
Basic construction: Add strips to a square so your block measures 9" (I will trim them)

Some ideas - various size squares and combinations of fabrics. (Use prints and/or solids, your choice)

Sample block

I've cut some squares and will bring them to share. We will need 56 blocks for our quilt, so please, make 2 or 3 blocks and have fun thinking INSIDE the box. The more variety in the fabrics, the better. 

Happy Sewing!
