Make a quilt in 2019 – May

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. By the end of the year, you will have enough for a quilt.  May’s pattern is below.

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

February’s block is here.

March’s block is here.

April’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 May’s block.

I’m using blue fabrics for my ‘Make a quilt in 2019’ project, but I’m suggesting that you do yours in different tones of a single colour – any colour. I have to say that blue often appears in my quilts. Here’s my ‘Pinstripe’ quilt, pictured on the beautiful coast of North-East England.  You can find the pattern here.


Thank you for reading my blog. Quilt patterns are here, Fabrics are here, Classes are here.
