Blocks for Good - Round Three

Updated: May 30, 2023

Spectacle Quilt Blocks

Again we are giving you 2 months to make your Blocks for Good. We are running Block lotto every 3 months, so have decided to give extra time here.

Our block this time uses 2 fabrics. If you like, you can make them in pairs, alternating fabric placement. Make as many blocks as you like.

Faith Jones, of Fresh Lemons Quilts, designed this quilt for Project Linus. Get her free pattern over at Bernina's We All Sew Blog.

Are you ready?

The colour palette...

  • We are not using a background color.

  • For each block, choose 2 of these colours.

  • Try and aim for some contrast between the 2 fabrics.

  • If using solids, please try and pair it with a print.

These blocks will go into our Community Giving Program, to be made into quilts.

Let's be social! Tag us on Instagram @calgarymqg and use these hashtags. #calgarymqgblocksforgood #calgarymqg

Blocks will be collected at Calgary MQG March and April meetings.

I looked at the tutorial for this one and there is a reasonably efficient layout from a 12" square that might appeal to the scrap busters in the group. Two 12" squares would yield 2 blocks.

Cut a 12" square into the following three strips:

- 2" (or 2" and a bit for finished block trimming later),

- 5", and

- 4.5" (or 4.5" and a bit for finished block trimming later).

"A bit" could be 1/4" roughly. Taking advantage of the "bits" would use the entire 12" on one side. …
