Through a free online course offered through Craftsy called, 2015 Block of the Month, I am learning how to make a different quilt block every month. In January, I made a block pattern called “May Basket”. For February, two quilt block patterns were introduced. February was a crazy busy month for me with the kids visiting, so it was March before I got one of the blocks finished. Since they were similar in style, I decided to do only one of the February patterns for now.
Since I am not making a quilt at this time, I am just using random scraps of fabric I have to make each block, rather than a color coordinated set of fabric pieces– kind of like the way my grandmothers did it years ago. They just used what they had available.
Here is my “Basket of Fruit” quilt block for February.
So are you ready to learn to sew quilt blocks? You don’t even need a sewing machine– just a needle, scissors, thimble, thread, and fabric scraps. The class includes all the instructions and pdf printouts for you. Learn a new creative skill and set a goal to sew one quilt block a month this year. Sign up here.
