    One of the girls in a bee I am in asked us to make this block, I had such fun making one for her, that I am making one for myself! Thank you so much, I hope you do not mind that I put a link to your blog as I posted the picture on mine.

    What a cool idea. I saw it on What kt made next. You could do so much with this. I would make it liberated or wonky. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Natalie says:

    by my calculations with these measurements, this only gets you 11.5" finished unless your seams are really scant…Is that correct? We are doing this block for a bee and I think we're having trouble getting to 12.5"…

    • Rose says:

      Natalie, I think if you read the directions carefully your block will measure 12.5″ as instructed in the tutorial.

    As SOON as I get two seconds to myself when business slows down, I’m all over this like white on rice! LOL! 🙂 I CAN’T WAIT! Thank you for sharing this pattern, it’s just the stash buster I was looking for!

    Hi Corey,

    I have loved this block ever since I made it 3 years ago for someone in an online bee, and now I cant wait to ask others to make some for me. I will be linking to this tutorial page, and wonder if it would be alright if I also reproduce your instructions so I can give a hard copy with each fabric pack.

    Thanks very much.

    You are right…I can’t take my eyes off of this block. It’s such a happy pattern. Can’t wait to try it myself.
