Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing the A Quilting Life Quilt Block of the Month September 2023 Blocks. I do love a sweet basket block and love how my blocks turned out in both the 12″ and 6″ finished sizes. Additionally, I have some information for you about the 2024 Block of the Month including a new option with some extra goodies!
A Quilting Life Block of the Month September 2023
September Block Details
This month I’m sharing one of my favorite simple basket blocks. I used a petite red floral from our Emma collection along with a tone on tone background, and a light background and green leaf print from our Favorite Things group for the 6″ finished block. And I used five different prints from Favorite Things for the 12″ finished block. At first, I wondered if the stripe was too busy for the basket bottom, but I’m really loving the fun look of the stripes there!
Half-Square Triangle units are sized up and trimmed exactly to size, making this a wonderful block for beginners. You’ll find a few extra hints and tips on today’s video.
