KIdsQuilt Jigsaw Puzzle

Welcome to another quilt jigsaw puzzle from Quilt Alliance! This is our very first KidsQuilt puzzle for you and we’re starting with a game called Rock the Block! See below for clues. Be sure to sign up for our blog notifications, so that you don’t miss any of the upcoming puzzles.

Rock the Block!

Rock the Block is a quilt block guessing game. Each puzzle features the image of a popular quilt block and the name of that block. The clues below will give you hints about the shape, theme, design or name of the block shown in the completed puzzle.


Clue Number 1:

Our first Rock The Block puzzle spotlights a quilt block that is made up entirely of straight lines, just like the boards used for the walls of a house. 

Clue Number 2

Our mystery quilt block has a square at the center, like the fireplace in the center of a house.

Clue Number 3:

The name of this block is the type of house that Abraham Lincoln was born in.

Think you know what the mystery quilt block is called? Solve the puzzle to see if you’re right!

How To Trim Flying Geese Without A Specialty Ruler

If you don’t have a Bloc-Loc ruler, you may find trimming these flying geese challenging. But by following these steps, you should be able to get four accurate geese in each color!

First, line up your ruler so the point of the flying geese unit will be trimmed exactly ¼” above the point. Try to line the unit up as straight as possible on the other three sides.

Next, flip the unit over. Line up the edge you just cut on the 2” line of the ruler as shown below, and trim the excess from the top.

Flip the unit right side up again. Line the lower left corner up with the 3 ½” mark on your ruler as shown above. Trim the excess on the right.

Finally, flip the unit over again so the point is pointing towards the 2” line. Align the left edge of the unit with the 3 ½” ruler mark as shown above and trim the excess on the right. Your flying goose unit is now ready to be pieced into your block!

Quilt Documentation Tip

 Andrea’s block story is all about the importance of quilt guilds. Quilting can feel solitary, but guilds bring us together. It’s a topic of conversation that was discussed with two Birthday Block of the Month Designers in a recent Textile Talk where the participants all shared emotional stories about their love for their guilds. 

Did you know that your guild can document your quilts as a group? Consider hosting a quilt documentation day in your guild! Follow these instructions and have members share three minute stories about one meaningful quilt in the Quilt Alliance’s signature Go Tell It documentation program. You could even host a screening so all of your members can see the videos! Get in touch at:

See You in October for Month Seven!

Thank you so much to everyone who has participated in the Quilt Alliance’s Birthday Block of the Month so far! Our designer for next month, the seventh block we’re making together, is Bonnie Hunter herself!
