Although I was too late to participate in the bee that led me to make this first block, I really love following the monthly blocks that are presented for the Global Scrap Bee. I was inspired to make this month's block with scraps that go with my Aurifil BOM collection.
The tutorial is by Jennie, found at here at Clover & Violet. (I especially love her Strippy-Figgy version at the bottom of the tutorial!)
My next block is from the June Designer for Aurifil's Block of the Month, Heidi Pridemore. Her block is titled Chain Links. She provided a tutorial AND a pattern to complete a Chain Link Quilt:-) It is neat to see how the block looks repeated in a quilt! Both links can be found here, in her interview with Pat Sloan. Heidi said she designed the block with her two sisters' in mind, which I found endearing since I also have two sister's :-)
She seems quite bubbly and happy, and of course I like her name, so I made a visit to her blog and found Heidi lives not all that far from me, in Chandler, AZ.
This morning I pulled them all out and snapped a photo of progress to date:
Yep, just because.
I add whatever strikes my fancy to this block pile !
Thank you for reading today - hope you are having a happy and quilty week ;-)
Linking up with Lyn at What a Hoot, for BOMs Away, and with Jen at Quilter in the Closet for Building Blocks Tuesday.
