We are now up to Block 10 for the Mystery Block of the Month 2022, I can’t believe it, time is flying by! For Block 10 we are making the super sweet Prairie Queen Quilt Block.
The Prairie Queen Quilt Block is a lovely nine patch block from the Pioneer Days and is also known as the True Blue Quilt Block. I liked the name Prairie Queen because it reminds me of one of my favorite TV shows as a child, The Little House on the Prairie.
For my blocks, I have used various fabrics, but the main fabric collection I have used is Heirloom by Alexia Marcelle Abegg.
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 Prairie Queen Quilt 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.
CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PRAIRIE QUEEN QUILT BLOCK
To make the Prairie Queen Quilt Block you will need FOUR different fabrics.
Please see the diagram below for cutting instructions
I like to make the four patch units in one go, but you might like to cut each of the blocks out at 2½” x 2½” and sew them together individually, this is the best option if you want to use directional fabric and have each of the blocks sitting the right way up.
