Another Setting Idea for March Blocks
Peaches and Dreams is a free quilt pattern from Judy Laquidera, available on her Patchwork Times site.
It is made from 12 inch blocks that contain one large rectangle and three small ones.
If you wanted to use our March blocks in a similar layout, you could make 18 inch blocks, using three lotto blocks and one large 9-inch by 18inch rectangle. I would probably start with a center cut at 3-1/2 by 8-1/2, add 2 rounds with 2-1/2 strips on the short sides and 1-1/2 inch strips on the long sides and 2 more rounds with 1-1/2 inch strips all around.
Adding the larger rectangles and making 18 inch blocks could make a pretty quick quilt.
Of course, you could always make Judy’s quilt using our March color-way. I think that could be interesting, too.
