A Giveaway!

Hello there everyone!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a public holiday here in SA too. Double Fun!
Thanks for all the wonderful wishes - I had a wonderful and peaceful day.

So, because I can't show anyone what Im busy with at the moment, Im going to be doing a Giveaway because they're fun too.



This is the Geometric Connect block


Pattern measures 14" (36cm) blocks
Easy Intermediate level


I wanted to make just one block for a mugrug for my desk.






I printed out a piece of Charley Harper fabric with my printer.... I have a Inkjet printer and after a whole rig-ma-roll of cutting a piece of fabric the size of a page, ironing it to freezer paper and then slowly feeding it through the printer, I got one page of the black and white print. It took about 4 tries because the inside of the printer was dirty and kept making ink smears on the fabric. Afterwards I did a happy dance and then ironed it to set it.
I had to make dark corners because there was no more....
Its okay for a mugrug tho'....




You can make these blocks into groups of 4 or even more and have a stunning trellis pattern in next to no time at all. With the 4x4 blocks the quilt will be around 56" without the border.


You can download the FREE pattern here.........


Have a great day!
