A Season in Blue Quilt Along - "Pinehurst" Month 5

Updated: May 19, 2023

This month, we will be working on blocks from the Pinehurst Quilt.


Each month we are making individual blocks

from a selection of quilts found in our "A Season in Blue" book.

This will give you a chance to try some of the beautiful patterns

and grow as a quilter, as we create a Block Sampler.


For more information about this event, click here.

Our fifth month's block will be from

the “Pinehurst” quilt on page 44 of our "A Season in Blue" book.


Please note: Fabrics in step-by-step photos and videos may vary from my blocks.

These will be provided to demonstrate the technique, and how to make your blocks

through the step-by-step photos and videos.


I will share with you the fabrics I will be using for each block, but

I encourage you to get creative this year and choose fabrics that you love!


BLOCK

We will be making this block from "Pinehurst" in a variety of fabrics!

Gather your supplies and follow the cutting directions on page 45 of the "A Season in Blue" book.


I recommend 4 blue, 4 light fabrics. Did you notice our Blue Escape and Seabreeze Collections? Those are perfect for this project! I am going to be using Pinehurst Acrylic Templates, Aurilfil 2325 for piecing, Sewline Pencil for marking, and Patchwork pins for pinning.


For our Block Sampler, you will need 4 pine blocks.

Get creative with those color choices!

Read through this entire blog before you start cutting.


Don't forget to visit our YouTube channel. If you need a little extra help,

click here to watch and get helpful tips for this block!


For one pine block, you will need the following:

Cutting: 1 - Tree A pieces

1 - 1½" x 1½" matching squares for Tree Trunks

1 matching pairs of background pieces B and B reversed

2 - 1½" x 2½" background strips


For our Block Sampler, we will be making 4 total pine blocks, I can't wait to do them with you.

Arrange one Tree A, a 1½" x 1½" tree trunk, and matching piece B, B reverse, and 2½" x 1½" light pieces.

Place right piece B, right sides together over tree piece A, pin and sew.

If needed, mark your sewing points with our Sewline Pencil!


Repeat for piece B on left side.

Pin and sew together trunk pieces.


Pin and sew rows together.


Press seams open, or push them towards the Tree.

The unfinished tree block should measure 5½" x 11½".

Repeat to make a total of 4 tree blocks.




Quick Tip

Or if you want a Pre-Cut option, our Quilter's Dozen - Pines Fabric Kit

is the perfect choice.

No cutting needed!







Congratulations! You have now made your "Pinehurst" Trees for your Sampler Quilt.

Here's some color inspiration for you!

Blue Escape fabrics are so serene in this design!


And look just how yummy the Strawberries and Cream Collection looks!







Great job everyone!

Oh I just can't wait to see how your

color combinations will come together.


Happy Quilting!

I have stitched the 4 tree blocks together in a row. I hope I haven’t jumped the gun and they should have been left single blocks!

I've got a sneaky suspicion you're going to be picking out some stitches.

I love this this pattern I just completed two table runners one in Blue Escape and one using the Seamsresss collection to give in a basket for Mother’s Day. They turned out to be stunning. Thank you Edyta.

Well, now I'm wondering if there's a compelling reason to make the trunks the same as the trees. I'd planned on making them contrasting.

I’m happy to use this pattern again! When I made the quilt, I used the same group fabrics for trunks, but didn’t match them to the trees. Tree A got trunk B. I liked the result— not too matched, but unifying.
