July Block of the Month and Happy Birthday USA!
I thought it would be fitting to start with a special birthday block this month to celebrate the 4th of July holiday here in the United States. So here’s my tribute, all wrapped up in Block 7:
In addition to our guest block, we have our regulars. First up for July is the citron/gray sample:
And here’s the July block using Kathy Davis’ Happiness line and a great Kaffe Fassett dot:
Notice there’s either joy or happiness in each of these blocks. Click here to download the instruction sheet for the July block (instruction sheets for all of the earlier blocks can be found in our Pattern Library). I’ve decided July is my favorite of all the blocks. Let me know what month you like best so far. We only have two more to go, so if you’re behind, it’s time to catch up. Or, in the case of my sister Janice, who’s making her quilt in holiday fabrics, it’s time to start!!
Thank you to everyone who shared your reasons for wanting to win the new 2012-2014 edition of the Quilters’ Travel Companion from the giveaway in my June 19th post. There were so many good ones. I hope those of you who didn’t win will go out and buy a copy like I did – it’s a great resource. The one lucky winner who doesn’t have to buy her own copy is Margaret Fritz. Congratulations!
Take care and enjoy the holiday.
