New giveaway begins March 1

March Giveaway Preview

This is a small prototype block (half size) of the larger block from the block of the month quilt, Beyond the Gate, which will be the giveaway beginning March 1. I’ll post the rules and have everything ready on March 1. This post is just a preview.

This one is fused and ready to go. It’s 16.25″ x 35.5″ which is still a good size for you to add borders or other block to increase the size. It would make a good center for a round robin.

The giveaway will begin March 1 and run the entire month.

See how this block fits in within the entire quilt
