|May's 'Dutchman's Puzzle' block|
I have been joining in the “6 Designers – 12 Blocks sew-along” (6kopfe12blocke) this year.
There are twelve blocks 12" traditional patchwork block - one a month.
|February's Churn Dash Block|
I have made four of the blocks to date as part of my 2017 BAD (block-a-day) project.
|January's 'Rolling Stone' Block|
I am going to put together a red, white and blue quilt using many of the blocks I make this year - hence my colour choices.
|Just some of the Block-a-Day blocks I have made this year|
Making larger blocks is not unknown to me and the tutorials are clear and straightforward (click on the photos to go through to the tutorial for that block). But I decided it might be fun to paper-piece this month's 'Pineapple' block - such big pieces - such big fun!
I shall of course be including my 12" Spinning Churn Dash block in the finished quilt ...
