Amish Quilt Block

This block swap as a monthly series, with a different color theme each month. It is an easy block and everyone has solid color fabric hanging around. By this time next year, we will have enough blocks to make a quilt. You don’t have to participate every month, it will be fun to have blocks all made by someone else to put together as a quilt.

For this swap, you will make your partner one block. The block will have two SOLID color fabrics (no prints allowed), one always being black and the other will change each month. It will measure 12-1/2" square.

January swap will be Blue and Black. Remember solid colors.

Here is the pattern:

A couple of us have had a little trouble making the block end up 12.5". It's really important to use the scant 1/4" seam allowance, especially when assembling the three strips to finish.
