Summer Blockbuster!


7 Comments

Here is your chance to have the fun of starting a new project and make yourself feel righteous for finishing a work in progress…all in one!

Do you have a group of sampler blocks, block of the month project or Bee Blocks languishing on your W.I.P. list? This would also be great for a group of applique blocks that need a setting, or a beautiful large-scale print you want to display but not chop up… just cut it into squares!

Starting this week I am going to publish periodic posts with the pattern and instructions to turn your blocks into a finished quilt, using the design shown above.

I have these Lemoyne Star blocks that have been haunting my to-do list for a while,

I made them in four sizes, 12″, 9″, 6″ and 3″ and have the perfect number to piece them all up to 12″ squares and come up with 9 blocks for the setting at the top.

This could also be made larger for more blocks, and I will provide instructions for blocks of different sizes.

Tune in on Friday for fabric requirements and cutting instructions.
