Here we are at block 3!

Block #2448

*Remember, if you’re keeping all your sew along blocks in the same project, open the project now so you can add this new block.*

Open BlockBase and click the Search by Number tool.

Type in 2448 and click Search. Our pretty block pops on screen!

I’d like to show you a fun feature of BlockBase. Move your mouse cursor on top of the block and then right-click. In the context menu that appears, click Quick Quilt.

A 4 x 4 quilt layout appears, filled with the selected block. What a wonderful way to quickly see what this block would look like in a quilt! I love the secondary design created at the sides & corners of this block.

Click the X at the top-right corner of the window to close the quilt.

With Block #2448 still selected, click the Print Block tool and choose your pattern type. I’ll be using Foundation Pattern, but you can use whichever piecing method you prefer.

Now type in your size- remember it’s finished size! BlockBase adds the seam allowance for you. Preview your printout and then click Print.

If you’re saving all your sew along blocks in the same project, click the Add to Project tool and then the Save Project tool.

Come back on Friday, November 9 to show off those finished blocks!


Due to several requests for reminders about the sewing along, I’ve decided to create an email list only for those participating in the sew along. You must email me directly to be added to this list. Please send an email to with the subject line BlockBase Sew Along Email Reminders to be added to the mailing list.
