March Calendar Blocks and TWO Quilt Patterns

It's March and I have another set of blocks from my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar. There are 31 blocks in TWO sizes, along with complete directions for TWO quilts!

See more about these two blocks below (as a FREE pattern included). I used the new Uncorked Collection by Windham Fabrics to make this in the 10" block size. Irish Cross and Chain.

Irish Cross and Chain Quilt: 28" x 28"
You can see ALL of the blocks in the calendar, in alphabetical order here: Block a Day Calendar. Be careful; you could spend some serious time there looking at all of those 366 blocks!

I've also included a list of all the blocks in the calendar (366) and the sizes. It's at the end of the March Blocks pdf. You can also link to it here: Quilter's Block a Day Calendar Blocks

This set of March blocks is a full 49 pages. Would you like to see one? How about a birthday cake?

Celebrate Block: March 7. Two sizes: 6" and 12"
Remember, you can see ALL of these blocks by doing a search in the right side bar for "Quilter's Block a Day Calendar." I featured 7 of them each week here. The blocks were made with real fabric (not just my digitals) by Patricia Bryant using my block patterns. She did such an awesome job!

One of the two quilts included is Patches and Leaves. The block size is 12". The quilt, as shown, is 56" x 68". I've also included a one page tip sheet for quick-stripping the center 16-Patch. The little leaves are appliquéd either raw edge by machine or by hand (your choice, of course)!

Patches and Leaves: 12" block from March 21
Here are 3 quilts, two from shop owners and one (the runner) made by me:

Beautiful Patches and Leaves in bold, happy colors
And a quilt done in lavender and cream:

 And my simple runner:


The second quilt pattern I include is Irish Cross and Chain. These two 10" blocks from March 17 and 18 are a perfect way to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day!

Irish Cross and Chain: 64" x 74"
I had some of the new Uncorked Collection by Windham Fabrics to make two each of these blocks:

Double Irish Cross (10") is the March 17 block  (for St. Patrick's Day, right?)

March 17 block: Double Irish Cross - 10"
Double Irish Cross (10") is the March 18 block

March 18 block: Double Irish Patches - 10"
You can get your copy at my Craftsy store. If you missed the January and February sets, they are there, too!

January Calendar Blocks (31 blocks and 2 quilt patterns)

February Calendar Blocks (29 blocks and 2 quilt patterns)

March Calendar Blocks (31 blocks and 2 quilt patterns, along with list of ALL 366 blocks by size)

So many blocks, so little time . . .
