Lasting Legacies Block of the Month
11.19.2013

The Lasting Legacies Quilt Along is beginning their first block for Connecting Threads first ever Block of the Month this week. It is being constructed from the brand new Lasting Legacies civil war collection. The quilt is made with twelve blocks; two colorways of six different blocks giving the overall look a very scrappy, yet cohesive feel. The project will be made over a seven month period with the first six months dedicated to making the blocks and the last month for constructing the sashing and borders.

There are two options for participating: first, the pattern can be downloaded for $5.99 so you can make it from your stash, second, the kit can be purchased which includes a free pattern. Consider dropping by or joining the Lasting Legacies Block of the Month Quilt Along to see step-by-step, how to construct the whole quilt. Instructions will be posted in the Discussion Forum area for each block and included are construction photos. The Quilt Along already has a large number of wonderful members who are eager to help anyone with construction and/or questions as well as yours truely!

Come join us as we begin this wonderful adventure!

    The differing blocks offer such a great exploration of style and techniques. I love how the quilt leads you on a story and lets you dance around on the piano keys, which I love!
