I am so happy with this block and its versatility. I do believe this is going to be one of my “go-to” patterns for a long time coming!

The block is interesting and unique, but simple enough to make by a beginning quilter. Believe it or not, there are only a few points to match in the center of the block and the rest is simple SEW & FLIP!

The pattern gives you info on three different variations: a large block in your favorite fat quarters, a slightly smaller block made entirely out of a DESSERT ROLL, as well as a two-color version that we have made up in red [but so many other colors would look great, too]. In fact, I am kind of visualizing it in pretty much every single one of our Fig Tree EYELET BASIC fabrics – shipping to stores in November 2023!

    The colors are so pretty. My grandmother owned a cafe and she saved her flour sacks. She made a lot of dish towels & pillow cases out of them. I saved one of her pillow cases made out of a pink printed flour sack. What a precious memory of days gone by.
