Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing the Quilting Life Block of the Month | October 2019 blocks. This months blocks are number 20 and 21 which means we just have four blocks left for our quilts. My plan is to get at least one of my quilts finished and off to the quilter in the next week or so and then finish my second quilt asap after that.
Quilting Life Block of the Month | October 2019
I have plenty of half-square triangles for making my final blocks, and so for this month’s blocks I was able to mix half-square triangles from many different fabric collections. I’m in the process of deciding on sashing right now, and that has been a lot of fun to play around with all of the possibilities!
The pattern for this month’s block 1 has always been a favorite, and I love the scrappy look!
I also love the design for block 2…and again, I really love it with the different mix of fabrics.

Red and Green Version
I’m still working on my red and green blocks for September and October. But as I did last month, I’ll share my red and green layout on the PDF.
Thanks so much for sewing along with the Quilting Life Block of the Month! Happy quilting!

These are just beautiful! What fabric are the white background pieces? Thanks for your blog and videos!

I am behind a month! IF there is a block that I am not happy with, what do you suggest I do? Would it throw the layout of the quilt off if I made an extra of a favorite block as a substitute? and, when will we find the final layout?! the suspense is getting to me!
In the PDF, it shows four blocks, so do we make 4 or just 1 of each.
In the PDF, it shows four different but similar blocks, so do we make one of block one and one of block two or two of each.

Make four of the smaller units as shown in the book to make one block for the sampler quilt. You can make them as scrappy as you’d like! Thank you for sewing along!
