Happy Monday everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? My family had a really amazing weekend and I’m sort of sad to even be starting the new week. Oh well – we have lots of fun things planned again this week…just hope the girls are as well behaved as they were!
Anyway – I’ll start today with one fun thing! My original block ‘Presents Under the Tree’ is the block for the ‘Rowan and Free Spirit Christmas in July Block-a-ton’ today!
You need to head over to the Free Spirit Blog to find the directions on how to make it yourself! Here’s my block in the crazier fabrics I chose to use for my quilt. I really loved the modern feel of my block and I recently promised to make my brother a quilt. His favorite color is white. Anyone that knows me or follows my blog knows that white really isn’t my thing. BUT I love my brother so I figured I would figure it out. I decided to use the block that I designed for this quilt along and tweak it to make it work for my brother’s quilt. He also wanted cool colors so above is the first block that I created. I’ll be sure to keep you all posted as his quilt progresses. Wish me luck with white!
Enough of that! It’s time to announce the giveaway!
