Just a Fun March Block


Or is a February block? This same block can be done in pink and reds to resemble a heart. Do you see it? Good. Now, let’s construct it, shall we?


This block was seen on McCall’s website some time back and I’ve been playing around with the design for quite awhile.


Materials List:

  • Green 1 (light green): (4) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and (2) 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Green 2 (dark green): (4) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and (2) 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • White: (8) 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ and (8) 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and (4) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

Pretty simple. I just grabbed some craps and cut up what I needed for the block. It was a quick and easy assembly, as well. To start, we did our HSTs from the light and dark green 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ pieces. When done, you’ll have FOUR 3 1/2″ HSTs of light/dark green.


I set them up on my design board to start setting up the assembly part. The above is the way they will set when assembled.


Next, we’ll take our 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ light and dark green pieces and attach a white 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ piece to opposite corners. On the dark green, it’ll be top left. On the light green, it’ll be top right. Do this four times.


Trim a quarter inch past the sewn line and iron open.


Opposite the white 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ pieces, you’ll attach the white 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. Sew diagonally (on a line already drawn on the white to keep you straight) and then trim, iron open.


Add those where they belong on your block and sew the entire thing together. Simple, beautiful and done!
