Unfortunately, we’ve had a couple of wet & chilly days here in south central Texas. Days where you just want to hunker down with a good book & wrap yourself up in a well-worn quilt for a quilty hug!
That’s what this month’s Quilt Dash’s free pattern is all about, “Summer Blues” is the name of it & I’m really sorry to see summer go. 🙁
This is one of those one-block quilt’s. You know the kind that I’m talking about, don’t you? You’ll need to make TWELVE (12) of the same block to make this beautiful quilt. I love these kinds of quilts because I can chain piece them so they sew together rather quickly!
“Summer Winds Quilt Block”
This is the one-block quilt that comprises the entirety of the “Summer Blues” free quilt pattern! It’s really quite simple to make, as long as you’re not afraid of making Half-Square triangles and Flying Geese! Then again, it *is* October, so you can be a skeerdy cat, if you wanna be! 🙂

Enjoy the fall season with the colorful oranges, reds and yellow leave’s of the season with this “Fall Splendor” quilt pattern. The appliquéd leaves can be made with your scraps to make a colorful and scrappy quilt! Or use your precut fabrics so your leaves match!
You can easily adjust this quilt to a smaller or larger size by increasing or decreasing the number of blocks and/or rows.
Isn’t it beautiful? Gorgeous? Colorful? Wonderful? Quiltalicious?
I want to have six or eight of these, all of the leaves in various colors. Will you (pretty please) make them for me?
This is a pieced and appliquéd quilt pattern
The size is 52” W x 65 1/2” H
