It's July! Where is the year going? I feel pretty sad that I've fallen behind in getting my blocks sewn but there really has been a lot going on around our house in the last month.
I didn't get as much research done on these blocks as I wanted to but am supposed to leave shortly for the holiday weekend. If I can sneak a few minutes away and can find something to add I'll update this post in a few days but for now here are this month's blocks.
I selected this block for the National Cherry Festival which starts tomorrow. More on that later........
Every year when it's time for the National Cherry Festival I try to do something special that usually features red and white. This year I started thinking about the Just Takes 2 Quilt from 2012. There are 100 different blocks in that quilt and can you imagine..............you could make 100 different quilts from that one pattern!
I took two of my favorite blocks and put together a couple of "summer snowflake" quilts for you. All you need to do is set the blocks side by side. I pulled part of the applique design out into the border to finish it off. I'm going to use some beautiful Kaffe Fassett prints for the applique and a black and white polka dot for my background but you could stitch them in red and white like the Just Takes 2 quilt. There's a variety of block sizes in the download. It's a big file so be patient as it downloads.
If you want to try your hand at some summer snowflakes you can get the block patterns HERE
