A masculine 16 Patch Block

We've had a need for quilts suitable for men, recently, and the pretty pinks and pastels just don't cut the mustard.  As someone said to me last week in Bee Blessed, "It's refreshing to make something that's not pink and pretty,"...or words to that effect!  So the good news is that this month is all about providing you with that refreshment and asking you to dig into the more masculine section of your stash.

There's a fab tutorial for the block here on the brilliant blog by Fiona @poppymakes. You'll whizz through the tutorial and won't want to stop at one.

The unfinished block will be 12.5" and is made using two contrasting fabrics.  We would ask that you use fabrics suitable for a man; blue, green, orange, red, modern brown, grey etc.  I hope you have as much fun making it as I did.

We would like to have the blocks by 25th November, please, and as always we thank you in advance for your continued support as we couldn't do it without you.

Happy Sewing
