I also wanted to show you a fun little block that you can make with leftover fabric. Are you familiar with Quiltmaker’s Bitty Blocks? These are 3″ and 4″ blocks that were featured on our Quilty Pleasures blog during 2015. Each month we provided a free pattern for one block. Here are some bowties made using red and white fabrics.
