Build-a-Block / Build-a-Quilt
Posted by Gerri Robinson on
I want to introduce a new concept I'm calling Build-a-Block, Build-a-Quilt! The first design utilizing this new concept is my Gem Stones Star Sampler.
Here's how it works: In the Gem Stones Star Sampler, the block building begins with a traditional 8-point star that you build upon with 3 different pieced surroundings, creating very unique blocks along the way.
This is a 5 designs in ONE pattern series where we will show the instructions for each of the elements needed for each Build-a-Block to then create 4 individual and unique quilts! We then take the block designs from each quilt and combine them to make the Gem Stones Star Sampler!
I know it sounds like a lot to digest but I know you will pick it up in no time with our detailed, easy to use instructions included in the pattern.
All 5 quilt designs in this Build-a-Block pattern are constructed using my signature basic quilting elements: Half-Square Triangle, Flying Geese, and Square-in-a-Square units. If you need to refresh your skills on these elements, click HERE!
I am so excited to introduce this new concept and be able to continue providing you with quilt patterns that can make more than one design!
I love samplers and traditional blocks — this pattern concept gives me both. LOVE IT!
Sounds wonderful. What a great concept.
Gerri, just love this design 👍
