It’s finally here – Block 3 of the Mystery Block of the Month 2022 – the Thrifty Block! This is a lovely simple yet effective block to make, the hardest part is making sure you cut the right size pieces for where you want them positioned in the block.
I’m loving that the Mystery Block of the Month is a small achievable project each month, that will become our most detailed quilt so far! The trick is making your block within the month so it stays a stress-free and fun quilting project.
This tutorial is free and everything you need to know to make the Thrifty Block is listed here, including the link to my free YouTube tutorial.
A PDF pattern with full printable instructions is available to purchase on my Etsy Store at a nominal fee.
