Blues And Purples Are So Pretty For This Spring Quilt Block.
This adorable Dutch Treat quilt block has you wishing for Spring. It’s so fresh and vibrant, the purple blue is luminous. A quilt block to brighten your heart after a long cold winter.
If you love blue, you’ll have fun digging through scraps to find just the right blue to capture the same effect. Put different blues together that create a purple hue. It takes a little time to get just the right combination, yet the blues are quite common, it’s just finding the right ones to go together. The block is quick to piece and much easier than you might think at first.
Dutch Treat was the February Aurifil Designer Block of the Month by designer Maureen Cracknell, who says the best thing she’s ever done is dedicating an extra-large basket just for scraps. The Dutch Treat quilt block is the perfect scrap buster. Any fabric could be used.
This striking quilt block was constructed by Melissa Cory of Happy Quilting. The versatile block would display beautifully on the wall, in a quilt, or a table topper. It’s the perfect Spring project.
