In 2022, the Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild's annual quilt-along is a block of the month! From February to November, we will release one block pattern per month, and the plan is to make 3 of each block for a total of 30 blocks for the year. (That's a 5x6 block layout of 12-inch finished blocks, putting the finished quilt around 60x72 inches.)
BLOCK #1: GRADUATED GEESE
The first block we've chosen is Graduated Geese, using a free tutorial from the Boulder MQG (thanks quilty friends!)
The instructions are posted here: https://bouldermqg.com/2018/07/29/august/
If you're using only 2 colors in your quilt, you can make all 3 blocks the same or swap your color placement for variety. For example, here's the block made up in Kona Pond and Peacock:
BLOCK #2: CHAIN LINK
The second block is Chain Link, using a free tutorial from the Block Central index.

BLOCK #3: MODSQUARED
The third block is ModSquared, a free block available to members of the Modern Quilt Guild.

Note that the center of the Square in a Square block should be a 3-1/8" square to preserve the points (not 3-1/4" as the pattern indicates).
BLOCK #4: MODIFIED GRANNY SQUARE
The third block is the Modified Granny Square, a free tutorial created by KMQG Education Coordinator, Sarah Elliott.

BLOCK #5: COMING SOON!
