I can’t believe it’s June already. It seems that we just started this project, but with the completion of this block, we’re two-thirds of the way through! Let’s start with my two June blocks:
My friend Sally Garrison is making three quilts – each in a different color family from the Paris Flea Market line (hugely popular a few years ago) by Three Sisters from Moda. What beautiful fabrics! I’ll bet there are many of us who still have some of these in our stash. Do you remember Paris Flea Market? Here are Sally’s three blocks (in pink, yellow and blue):
Here’s Darra’s June block, made with fabrics from Alex Anderson’s Leila Rose line:
Darra and I both chose (without conferring) to use two alternating fabrics around the perimeter of the block, while Sally used different fabrics for each square. I’m always fascinated to see how our individual design aesthetics differ. Click here to download the instruction sheet for the June block. And if you’re just starting the project, the instruction sheets for the January-May blocks and the setting diagram can be found in our Pattern Library.
Thanks to everyone who shared their creative ideas for using the yo-yo flowers. Congratulations to Leslie Williams, who will receive a Clover “Quick” YO-YO Flower Maker! Your entry was selected via random drawing as the giveaway winner from my May 22 post.
Keep sewing those blocks!
