The March block by itself really isn’t all that exciting, but it makes an excellent cornerstone for the center medallion, which we are also putting together this month.
So grab your rotary cutter and let’s get started because there is a lot to do this month. The blocks themselves are pretty easy. You’re making four, four-patch units, then the rest of the block goes together log cabin-style with black squares and rectangles. That’s what makes the negative space at the corners of the center medallion.
Then in the video tutorial accompanying this pattern I offer you tips and tricks on how to pin your blocks in order to get perfect joins whether your seams abut nicely, are both pressed in the same direction and are bulky or form the point of a triangle. There are HD close-ups of me pinning and sewing the blocks so you can follow along at home.
This is one of my favorite months because you really get a big wow factor when that quilt center goes together. It is very exciting. Next month we’ll start working on the pieced border and then we’ll work our way out to the corners.
