Make a quilt in 2019 – March quilt block

Hello – and welcome to my 200th blog post!

This year, I am hoping to persuade you to make a quilt. Each month, on the second Monday of the month, I am sharing a step-by step pattern for a twelve-inch block.

In case you missed it, January’s block is here

and February’s block is here.

In the January post, you can see information about basic equipment for quilt-making. You don’t need a whole lot to get started!

This is the link to the free downloadable pattern for March’s block.

The block looks like this.

I have used light, medium and dark tones of blue for my blocks. My suggestion is that you choose whatever colour you like, but stick to the light, medium and dark, as suggested in the pattern. Using the same colour throughout the quilt will give the quilt cohesion, so the different patterns of the blocks can shine.

Do get in touch to let me know if you are joining in! I’d love to hear from you.
