2024 Blocks:

Block 1 - "Old Maid's Puzzle" block  External link opens in new tab or windowLink  The January Block of the Month

Block 2 - "Dutchman's Puzzle" block  External link opens in new tab or windowLink   The February Block of the Month

Block 3 - "Chinese Puzzle" block   External link opens in new tab or windowLink   The March Block of the Month

Block 4 - "Bachelor's Puzzle" block  External link opens in new tab or windowLink   The April Block of the Month

Block 5 - "Indiana Puzzle" block  External link opens in new tab or windowLink  The May Block of the Month  (Special Note:  This is a 9" block, made of 9 3" segments, 3 segments per all 3 lines. However, to make it into a 12" block, enlarge those segments to 4" each.  So, to make a half square triangle (this block has 9 of them), cut your squares 4 7/8" or 5" and trim to size.  On the center segment, get some graph paper, draw a 4" square, mark the center point on all 4 sides, and draw lines to make a square in a square.  Cut out the square and one of the half square triangles and draw around them and add your 1/4" seam allowance to all sides. )

Block 6 -  "Arrowhead Puzzle" block  External link opens in new tab or windowLink  Everyone calls this "garlic knots".  Any questions, please give Rebecca a call - 281-732-1575
