We now have only 3 blocks left! It's been so much fun watching your blocks finish up and seeing the colors and fabrics you have chosen. We can't wait to see the finished tops! Also, since it's October, we are busy planning for next years quilt along and will be announcing it soon. It's going to be a little different than we've been doing, but is something a lot of you have been asking for, so we are excited to finally be able to offer it. Make sure you've signed up for our newsletter so you don't miss any of the details!
All Blocks will be 6 1/2"

- Subcut into 10 - 2 1/2" squares
- Cut 3 strips at 1 1/2" x WOF
- Subcut into 80 - 1 1/2" squares (use remaining fabric from 2 1/2" strip if needed)
