Hello, Happy March 1st, and welcome to the third installment of the Blogger Girls Block of the month! Here in sunny southern Nevada March is coming in like a lamb which means we might be in for some windy weather and cooler temps at the end of the month--but that's okay because I'm never ready for the heat to arrive!
Once again I had a wonderful time using Monique's pattern to make my two blocks (my fabric is Indigo Crossing by Minick & Simpson for Moda, available in shops now).
I've always wanted to make a blue and white quilt, and with each set of blocks I'm happy that I finally started one! I'm not sure which version is my favorite?!
I absolutely love them both!
And here are the first 6 blocks together with each alternate version below the original version. It's quite a difference!
This month's pattern suggests you use Monique's Fit to be Quarter 6.5" and Companion Ruler. I must say, these are two incredible rulers! I probably use Monique's Fit to be Quarter 6.5" ruler every day, and the Companion Ruler makes flip corners a breeze.
So, head on over to Monique's blog for this month's pattern, and then visit the other participating quilters' blogs to see their beautiful versions! Remember, the patterns will only be available for free until the quilt along is finished, so be sure to download your copies now.
