52 Blocks in 52 Weeks!

WELCOME to 52 Blocks in 52 Weeks!

How exciting that a nation of quilters is going to participate in a weekly Block Party!

How this works:

Starting January 15, 2019, each Tuesday morning a new set of instructions for a block will be posted here. There will also be a post on social media (Facebook and Instagram) reminding you to download your new set of instructions.

Instructions will only be on the website for 3 weeks and then they will be removed, so make sure you download each week.

There is a facebook group for those participating called 52 Blocks 52 Weeks if you want to join that and share your blocks and see what others are creating.

Block:

Each block is a 6 ½” unfinished (6” finished block).

The blocks themselves can be print, solids or a combination. It is a great stash buster or a fun time to use up some unique prints.

Each block will be written up using the same 3 colours to demonstrate. An example of fabric yardage for only these 3 colours is 1.5 yards for each.

If you’re going to post your block, and we encourage you to do so, please use the hashtag #52blocks52weeks. This is great for Instagram and twitter to allow quilters to search for other quilters doing the block challenge with us. Then we can see what everyone is creating!

Quilt:

You can arrange it anyway you want, but if looking for a finished size with no sashing or borders the quilt would be 36” x 54”.

For a quilt with a 2” sashing throughout and 2” border the size would be 46” x 70”. The  sashing and border fabric requiring 3 yards in total.
