Moccasin Block of the Month Club - March

Mar 2, 2015
Pin It
Is it seriously March?  Because you wouldn't know it from the negative temps and wind chills we are still having here in Ohio.  Grrr.  If it could just hit 32, it'd feel downright balmy! March brings us the next block pattern in the Moccasin Block of the Month Club.

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?  :)  The good news is that this month we are back to basics.  This month's blocks are comprised only of squares and half-square triangles (HSTs).  The bad news, you ask?  It's a bit of homework this month.  There are 3 blocks to make.  But don't worry, they are so much easier than the curves!

Block #3 (Shoofly - shown in Yellow and Orange Colorways)  and Block #4 (Crow's Foot)
Fabric is Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for my version of the BOM.

There are several ways to share your participation in the BOM.  I hope you'll join in the fun of quilting along online with us.

Moccasin BOM Color Inspirations

Feb 27, 2015
Pin It It's almost the end of February.  A quick month... and although this month's block was quite a challenge, thankfully, there was only one block for the short month.  Did you try it?  Was it new for you?  I'm proud of you!  Part of this BOM is skill-building.  I hope to get you to try a few things you might not otherwise attempt.  Curves are definitely something that take some practice to learn.  Remember you can always substitute another block if it's not sitting right with you.

Here are some of your blocks:
BOM month 2
Ester's Moccasin Block #2.  I like the bright and cheery colors used in the flower with the print background.

Laurie's Moccasin Block #2. I'm a sucker for polka dots!  This is a fabulous background for this green/blue palette for Moccasin.  It reminds me of water and lilypads.

*If you would like to have your blocks featured in the monthly spotlight, SHARE them with us!  Here's how.*

Hi everyone.  For those who are headed to QuiltCon in a few days, be on the lookout for Moccasin!  I hope you all have so much fun and get to see so much inspiration.  Unfortunately, I will not be attending in person this year, but I'll be there in quilty spirit.  :)  My Block of the Month Club Sampler quilt for 2015, Moccasin, was accepted into the show at QuiltCon.
Stop by and see it if you get a chance.  The quilting, done by Mindy Powell, is absolutely STUNNING.  You MUST see it in person.  She did a phenomenal job...  her quilting is hold-the-phone, shut-the-front-door, jaw-dropping amazing!  Please.  Go see it.  And then tell Mindy how awesome she is!
