Cartwheels - Building Blocks Tuesday

Hey there.  Sadly, I don't have any new blocks to share today.  It is not because I haven't been working on some things, but rather because I haven't finished anything.  So, I thought I would share one of my favorite blocks from last year.

Cartwheel block

This cartwheel block is an English Paper Piecing block from a class I took at QuiltCon 2015 in Austin from Katy @imagingermonkey.  She was such a fun teacher!  She's recently taken a hiatus from blog writing, but she is still on Instagram.

I made this block with the intention of turning it into a couch pillow, but never got around to quilting it.  Perhaps seeing it again today will inspire me to pull it out and put it back into the to do pile.

What blocks have you been working on this week?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.

1) Please link up only to the page on your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr and Instagram pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,

  2. Wow, what a fantastic block Jen!

  3. That is a beautiful block, you must do something with it so you have it out on display!


I had to shut off comments for a long time because I was just getting spammed. I'm going to try moderation for a while and see if that helps. Please leave me a comment.
