Katie is sewing along with us. Be sure to check out Katie’s block on her blog.

The fabrics we’ve used in our versions are just suggestions for how the blocks can be sewn. Be creative with your fabric choices—vary color and value placement.

Don’t forget to send pictures of your blocks to editor@quiltmaker.com. I’ll add them to our blog. There might even be a little giveaway!
