Blocks from the Past Quilt Along

Categories:Tutorials
MooseQuilts

I am starting off the new year with a quilt along with some friends from the book Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past by Marie Henry and Leisure Arts. We’d love to have you join us!

The book is out of print, but used copies are available all over online. The quilt looks really old fashioned, but we think it will look good by updating the fabric.

I am making my quilt out of a Kate Spain layer cake of Solstice. solstice


The schedule is below. I will be hosting two weeks of the quilt along. I will not be making all of the blocks. My quilt will be as big as it ends up being from as many blocks as I end up making.

The blocks in this book are 6″ finished. This makes some of them a little adventurous. I have started making my blocks-that I will show you on my day. They have been fun!

    Konda are you doing the blocks the same size as the book suggests or are you enlarging the blocks?
