Block 3 Available at Store Site

Dog Tooth Violet is the third block in this year’s Kansas City Star Quilts block-of-the-month project, a tribute to those who served in World War I.

Block3WebWhere Poppies Grow … Remembering Almo commemorates the Great War, which started almost a century ago, in July 1914. Denniele O’Kell Bohannon of Louanna Mary Quilt Design in Harrisonville, Mo., and Janice Britz of Bee Merry Farms in Peculiar, Mo., designed this year’s quilt as a remembrance of Almo Ebenezer O’Kell, Bohannon’s great-grandfather.

Angela Walters of Quilting Is My Therapy in Kearney, Mo., did the free-motion quilting.

The finished quilt is 72 inches by 83 inches.

The pattern for this block appeared in the March 16 Kansas City Star. The Star will publish a new block on the third Sunday of every month. Go to the “Lifestyle” tab, then “House + Home.” To read the story about the quilt and this month’s block in the online version of The Star, click here.

Every month, we will offer the current block on this site as a free download for one week only. The blocks then will be available for $3.95 at the Kansas City Star Quilts Store.
