Hello and happy Monday! Today I’m sharing my 2019 Block of the Month | March post. I’m sorry it’s a little late this month–I really meant to have it ready by last Tuesday. But with an out of town trip and kit and fabric shipping, I just couldn’t get to it until this weekend. This month’s blocks have a quick and easy setting, and I’ll post the April blocks earlier in the month 🙂
I had pre-made lots of half-square triangles earlier in the year, but this month I had to make a few extras to put in the mix. I’m super excited because I’ll be able to use our next fabric collection in the April blocks, and I’ve already got a pile of half-square triangles from that collection ready to go!
For the scrappy version of my blocks I went really random with the first block, but I used color pairs in the second block. I love them both.
With the red and green version blocks, though, I kept the colors more unified in both versions. I love the secondary pattern in the first block, and I love the way the second block turned out as well.
We are really starting to get a little collection of blocks! Seven finished…with 18 more to go! I have a super fun setting idea that I hope to get ready to share with you next month. Hopefully the end of March and beginning of April will be a little more relaxed.

It’s really been fun to see these blocks start showing up on social media. The quilts are going to be beautiful…every one! Happy quilting, and thanks so much for stopping by. I’ve got some really fun things to share over the next week or so! Stay tuned!
I’m so happy I decided to make your BOM, I really love these HST blocks. So simple but pleasing. Is there a special hashtag you use on social media? I’d love to see more blocks 🙂

Your blocks make me think Spring is right around the corner. I love your fabrics!
Thanks, Sherri. I have yet to make a HST for these blocks. I’m still using my stash of leftovers.

Love the blocks. Printing my pattern now for March. Looking forward to your upcoming posts! 🙂
Love your blocks and hopefully I get them done this week. Thanks so much for sharing!
Sherri, can I ask you what background fabric you are using for both sets of blocks that you are making?
sherri McConnell says
I use a lot of the tone on tone fabrics from our collections for the scrappy set. Moda Bella Ivory goes really well with those, too. For the red and green blocks, I’m using a more white background similar to Moda 9900 200.
Super excited to the setting ideas! Thanks for all you do!
I just love your fabrics! And all your pretty quilts and blog! thanks for the BOM sew along I’ve done Jan & Feb, can’t wait to do March now!
