Frequently Asked Questions about Mini Block Monday

How many mini blocks will be shared?

I've decided to end the Mini Block Monday series at 30 blocks. As with all of our Quilt Alongs, the tutorials and blog posts will remain online indefinitely. Piece as many blocks as you like and enjoy building new skills for precision patchwork piecing!

Where do I get the monthly Mini Block Patterns?

I'd originally planned to create a monthly mini pattern to showcase our mini blocks, but this plan also had to change due to my house repairs.

I published three Mini Block Patterns and you can find all three as a bonus for joining the Quilt Friends Club here.

You can also purchase the Easter Basket Pattern here without joining the club.
