Destination: Quilt Along – Block 3

And, yes, another week flew by and we are on Block 3. Fair in the Square is an adorable block by Abbie Danahy of Sparkle On, Living in a Material World.

Patterns are available on the designers blog. As in prior years, the posts go live on our blogs and our Facebook Group at 8 AM, EDT. You can see Abbie’s block here and read all her good information about making this delightful block.

Abbie lives not far from where I grew up and I remember all the great fairs we would go to. There was the May fair at the hospital, the fair that my grandfather would be guarding (he was a state cop) and we would get tickets to, and all the great food and church fairs. I know there will be some fun interpretations of this, just look at a few from our other designers.

Above are the blocks some of the hosts made for this week. Do be sure to check out their blogs for hints.

Jennifer @ Inquiring Quilter

The segment 1 prize will be awarded on August 10. Anyone who has completed all 4 blocks, substantially like the designers pattern, are eligible to win. You must post your picture on our linky page, Facebook or instagram. Links and more particulars will be in my Block 4 post.

    Hi Kathleen! I love your block! The ice cream cone looks good enough to eat, and the pennant flags just scream “good times”. ~smile~ Roseanne
