The National Quilt Museum ~ Block of the Month

Dutchman's Puzzle Pattern ~ Fresh Lemons Quilts

Have you heard about The National Quilt Museum’s Block of the Month Club?  On the 1st of each month, a new block pattern is released on their website and on their Block of the Month Facebook group.  The 10″ x 10″ block patterns are each designed by a different quilter, and represent an exhibit currently on display at The National Quilt Museum.  At the end of the 12 months of blocks, participants can submit their quilts for a chance to be featured in an exhibit at The National Quilt Museum in August 2019.  I was invited to design a Dutchman’s Puzzle block for November, inspired by the Kansas City Star quilt patterns and exhibit.

I love vintage blocks and playing with color, so this was a really fun project for me to be apart of.  I hope you enjoy making the versatile Dutchman’s Puzzle quilt block.  I’ve already seen many amazing versions pop up online!

    I love the fabrics you used! I have always loved blending blue and green, even when I was 10 and my 16 year old sister who knew everything told me blue and green never go together. I couldn’t see why they couldn’t. They looked fine to me so I just ignored her about that for my entire life. I loved her so much but we just didn’t agree about blue and green. It sure wasn’t worth arguing about.
