Hello and happy June! It’s quilt block of the month day (it’s always a bonus when I can get this post up early in the month for you all)! I hope you have fun making this month’s blocks. We are getting quite a collection now, and it’s fun for me to see both of my quilts coming together.
As soon as I finish each month’s blocks I photograph them for the blog post and also take pictures of the entire year’s blocks together. This helps me make sure I’m getting a good mix of colors in the blocks.
I had quite a large group of half-square triangles left over from Harper’s Garden sewing, so this month’s blocks are pieced almost exclusively from that collection (I just spotted one navy print from Clover Hollow above).
I really like how block one turned out. Of course it would be super cute completely scrappy as well!
Block 2 is similar to an earlier block, but with the “arrows” going in different directions than in our earlier block.
I love the red and green versions of this month’s blocks, too!
This quilt is going to be so much fun to put together!
And thank you so much for tagging your Instagram posts with #AQuiltingLife–it’s been fun to see these blocks made up in so many different fabrics and fabric combinations.

Thank you, Sherri, for doing this quilt along. I had a ton of red, white and blue HSTs from two quilt tops I made last year. Most of my blocks came from this stash. I have probably had to make less than 10 HSTs for the blocks. On a whim, I took the lazy route and did not trim my HSTs to one single size to make all the blocks. I used as many of one size as I could for each block only trimming if I needed more. My blocks vary in size. It’s going to be interesting putting mine together. I can’t wait to see how you finish it. (BTW, I still have a pile of red, white and blue HSTs. I may make more blocks.)
Love these blocks! Looking forward to seeing your setting suggestions.
