February Block: Dutchman’s Puzzle


In 2017, 12 will be making 8 inch (finished size) blocks. This month we’re making a traditional Dutchman’s Puzzle block, using green fabrics in shades inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year: Greenery.

Susan made this one.

Complete guidelines and the block directions are in this post:


Love It or Hate It–Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year


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 background and Greenery fabrics in multiple blocks as long as each block 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.
