March Box in a Box blocks: Patchwork Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop


It’s March in Minnesota.  A little over a week ago, we had one day where temps soared into the 70s.  Then just two days ago, parts of our state saw 8 inches of snow!  It can make a person a little cranky.  Thank goodness I’m part of the 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop.  I’m finding springtime in my fabrics!



Last month I shared my six Diamond Panes blocks, and in January we made our Souvenir of Friendship blocks.  This month our block is called Box in a Box.  This 5 1/2" block is easy to make and so darn cute.  



You may recall I am using the pretty Fleurs collection by Brenda Riddle (Moda) for my quilt. This is a collection that causes you to say, “Oh this is my favorite print . . . about several of the prints!  However, I’m pretty partial to this green floral.  So sweet!



In case you are a new reader, this annual event hosted by Fat Quarter Shop is a charity quilt along.  The patterns are free and are posted on the 15th of each month on the Jolly Jabber. Quilters are asked to donate $5 for each block pattern that they download.  All proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!  What a great opportunity for us all!



It's not too late for you to join in the fun. Here’s a link which provides all the details:
