Pattern Details

This pattern is not an easy one, but it is beautiful! I drafted this block from a quilt that was made in the early 60's. I machine pieced mine, but the original was hand pieced and that might be the way to go with this block, it's pretty tricky! I've included minimal instructions for this block, just a suggested piecing order, as it is a free block. I used EQ7 to create the templates and my test block came out perfect. Have fun trying this - let me know if you do and show a picture of your completed block! I've written a tutorial on my blog to help you sew this block - make sure you check it out, and if you have any questions feel free to contact me!

I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! From my start in quilting I have loved creating my own original designs, and I am glad for the opportunity to share them here with you! I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process. I'm always happy to answer questions and provide help if you have any problems, just let me know. Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
