Let’s Break it Down: A North Dakota Quilt Block Tutorial. In 1912 Hearth and Home solicited quilters to submit a quilt block that they thought represented their State, and they then published them and I am recreating these blocks for us to make!
National North Dakota Day is Wednesday April 19, 2023! I am going to try to release the State blocks on their National day throughout 2023!
This block looked difficult until I really started to break it down! I broke it down into 16 identical pieces and its how you arrange those pieces to get to the this block! My colors are the North Dakota State Fruit – Chokeberry.
