Our March Block – Susannah

Posted by on March 1, 2018 in housekeeping | 2 comments

Welcome to March at the Block Lotto! To celebrate the eventual arrival of spring (in the Northern Hemisphere, that is) and all things Irish in March, our block this month is heavy on the greens. It’s  fun and easy and offers a lot of design potential.

For March, we’ll be making the traditional block, “Oh Susannah!”, but we’re simplifying the name to Susannah. The finished block will be 8”, but should measure 8.5” as sewn.

The inspiration and colors for this block comes from Design Seeds (a great color website – check it out!) and the picture at the right. We will be working with this fresh color palette in our blocks as follows:


Main Color – Dark or Bright Green

Accent Color – Medium to Light Green or Medium Gray

Background: White or White-on-white


Without further ado, let me send you to the PDF link – BlockLottoSusannah – where you can print out full instructions.

I’ve had a blast making my three donation blocks for the tutorial, and I hope you enjoy these Susannah blocks too!
