WEEK 6: SEW SEVEN BLOCKS
One more week to go! For those of you who have made this far, a big thank you for taking on this project.
We shall keep this brief so you can get back to sewing and finishing a quilt top of any size. Those of you who do, will be entered into this raffle we mentioned last week.
Here are some other ideas to keep you inspired and moving towards our collective goal.
What shall we do with all of these scraps?
Make a patchwork stocking to complement your new quilt.

Have an orphan block?
Add a fun border and check out this easy pillow pattern.
Creating a pillow from one block is a great way to use those that didn’t make it into the final quilt design. We found this easy to follow tutorial as well as the downloadable pattern above.
NEED THE BLOCK PATTERN?
The block pattern is here: it's a free downloadable template from Cluck Cluck Sew!
