As small business owners, Lissa and I were both excited to see the name of this week’s block. We were drawn in by the design, but the name of this traditional block, Small Business, made it a must have for Quilt Concert 2023. Let’s get started on Block 3!
This post is packed full of information, so keep reading for all of the details about the block and how to win this week’s giveaway!

Block 3 Instructions
The Small Business block is based on block number 1225 from Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
The instructions are available to download for free through 11:59 pm Eastern on Thursday, July 6, 2023. If you miss the free download, you can purchase the Block 3 instructions alone for $2.50 through the end of the quilt along. The full pattern is available for purchase at any time through my Etsy Shop.
How-to Video for Quilt Concert 2023 Block 3
The best part of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) is that once you learn a few basic techniques, you can construct any FPP design. To help you learn these techniques, we are offering instructional videos for each block of the quilt along. This week Lissa is sharing techniques and tips for constructing Quilt Concert 2023 Block 3.
