|Butterfly Blues Block - 12"|
Here is the four block digital rendition that appears on Monday:
|Butterfly Blues Quilt - 33" x 33"|
Come back Monday for the June block. It's awesome. It's BIG. And it's easy to rotary cut. That's all I'm saying!
Back to the Block a Day calendar for a minute. You would think at this time my brain would be empty (and most days, it is). But for some reason I had a second wind this year and have designed several awesome projects for 2017:
A Civil War Sampler with 26 blocks!
A Flying Geese Sampler with 18 blocks
A Star Sampler with 16 blocks
An updated version of the historic Vintage Alphabet Quilt (Nancy Page 1930s) -26 blocks
And a USA quilt with a paper pieced block for every state (including Washington, DC) - 51 blocks
And soon to be released is my 2016 Wall Calendar of quilt blocks - just images, one for each calendar day. When my publisher asked me to do this, I said that I would like the rights to offer one or two of the patterns a week on my blog. They said, "Go for it!" Be on the lookout for those free patterns to be issued concurrent with the calendar. Ask your quilt shop to carry it. I'm pretty sure the big box stores will have it in the calendar section. These blocks are taken just from my first 2 years of blocks! Is my head empty yet?
