Tracy's Row by Row Block of the Month 2021/22

For the longest time I had a yen to make a Row by Row quilt and when I created my “And Pretty Blocks All in a Row” quilt in the summer of 2021 I was so delighted with it that I developed a pattern and instructions in a Block of the Month format.

I formulated the BOM to appeal to the Beginner and the more Experienced Quilter, with two options each month – a simpler one and a more challenging choice - so that each quilt could be as individual as its maker. I included a range of different techniques, so there was plenty of scope for learning and growing as a quilter. There are a few old favourite blocks such as the Variable Star, some hand pieced hexagon rosettes and a couple of Dresden Plate variations as well as techniques such as working with bias bars and Foundation Paper Piecing.

I thoroughly enjoyed working on the quilt and was delighted to find that other quilters enjoyed it to. It was amazing to see the different quilts (and their quilters!) grow and develop over the months and it was such a thrill to see my designs come to life. Here are a few pics of students’ work.....
