Pop Top or Longneck Block for March Quilt Block Mania

Welcome! Make yourself comfortable and feel free to grab a drink - do you prefer a Pop Top or Longneck?

When the theme of 'drinks' came up for this month, I immediately thought of our favorite BBQ party song - Drinking Again by Luke Bryan. In the song, he describes all sorts of reasons for having another drink, with 'pop top and longneck' as part of the song's refrain. To my surprise, this month's creative quilt block designers came up with a wide variety of drinks to satisfy that desire to drink again. Maybe they were channeling the song too. Take a look - there are 27 'drink' themed blocks this month!

And here's the list of the creators behind these refreshing beverages - be sure to thank them for serving up some delicious refreshments this month!

Though Pop Top or Longneck looks complicated, it's really quite easy to put together. The stitch and flip technique is used to advantage, along with straight line seams - it's perfect for the beginner quilter. One could even add some embroidery on the labels. So grab some fat quarters or scraps and get to making your own 12" x 12" finished block!
