This year, I’m a member of the Aurifil design team. Each month, a new designer will be creating a free block tutorial that you can download at the Aurifil blog. Additionally, each month Aurifil is giving away a box of threads ($120 value) to one lucky winner who completes the block and uploads it to the Flickr group.
I couldn’t resist saving the tiny triangles that result when piecing the block and making them into tiny pinwheel blocks. These will finish at 1.75″. I’m not sure what I’ll use them for yet, but they might be worked into the back of the quilt.
The featured designer for February is Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock.
Amy’s block is called Mother’s Day. Here’s Amy’s version:
And my version:
