Make One or More from Scraps!
Rainy weather is perfect for quilting, and what could be more appropriate than this charming umbrella block? It’s a fun project that will allow you to take advantage of scraps and that can be used in many projects.
Sew several of the blocks in rows for a small quilt, table runner, or row quilt. Add one or more to a tote bag, or include them with other blocks in a sampler quilt.
In fact, this block is for April in a year’s worth of free block designs. Scroll to bottom of the tutorial page to find blocks for the rest of the year.
The finished block, designed by Diane Knott, is 8″ square.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
