Once A Week Keep Your Own March #4

Good Morning

Since there are 5 Sundays in March, we will have a challenge block but I will post that next Saturday.  Today, we have a fun block to play with and a little challenging.  The block is 7 inches.  Remember, these are just blocks to challenge us and are not meant to be put into a quilt together, though if you do find one that would make a good quilt, go for it.  I will be doing mine scrappy.  The name of the block is Another Pineapple Block and can be found here at:  http://www.quilterscache.com/A/AnotherPineappleBlock.html.

You have the rest of the month to post your March blocks.  Or if you are new to our group, you can play catch up by following the list of blocks already made.  You also have the option of passing on a block if you feel that it is too hard or just don’t want to do the block.  The blocks will be of different sizes and there may be some different techniques involved, such as paper piecing, applique, etc.  These are just for practice to hone our skills.

Here are the blocks starting with January to the present:

Jan:

Friendship Star

Friendship Scrap

Friendly Hand

Friendship Star Variation


Feb:

Scot’s Plaid

Scrapbagger

Z-Cross

Scrap Diddly

Bonus:  Solitaire

 

March:

Hole in the Barn Door

Golden Gate

California

Another Pineapple Block

Hope this helps!  I will try and keep the list updated. 

Thanks for playing along.  See you next week with the Challenge Block.  We may go with paper piecing.  We shall see.

Chat later.

 

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
