April Block: Cactus Block

In 2017, we will be making 8 inch (finished size) blocks. This month’s block is the traditional Cactus Pot block.

Guidelines and the link to the block directions are in this post:


Colorful Cactus Pots in April


The maximum number of blocks you can make and enter for chances in the drawing this month is the usual NINE blocks.  If you make multiple blocks … you can use the same fabrics in multiple blocks as long as each three-fabric combination is unique.

The target set size for our winners will be 48 blocks.

Although there will be no Quilt-Along in 2017, I have a quilt idea that I think is pretty interesting (and might be used for a sampler quilt). Check out  The 3 Bears – A Fill-in-the-Blocks Quilt Pattern.
