Block Rock’n Week 6 – Marley

by Julie Hirt

Welcome to week 6!   Here is the “Marley” block (aka Three Little Birds).



This may be my favorite block of the series, so far.  I actually had the name picked out before I made the block!  I knew I wanted to do something with Bob Marley and I love the song Three Little Birds.  Then I had to figure out a block.

The other blocks don’t really match their namesake, but this one made sense to try.  I also like how the center makes a 4 pointed star.

Rise up this morning
Smiled with the rising sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singing sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying, “This is my message to you-u-u”

Due to changes within Craftsy, I am moving the patterns to Etsy. 
Buy the entire series of 12 blocks for $5 or each block for $1.  

Download HERE

Feel free to share within sewing groups if you use this pattern as your Bee block!
It does NOT need to be purchased multiple times. Same with the series purchase.

If you make this block I’d love to see it:


Have a blog? Grab a button and share the fun – this is a free series! Code is here.



Hope you enjoy this one, see you back in two weeks for week 7!
