My Turn!

I was invited to participate in the My Favorite Block Quilt Along hosted by Kim at Persimon Dreams Blog, and today is my turn! (I also have a little feature over on Kim's blog today, so check it out)  There are some very fun and creative block tutorials that have already been shared by other designers, and more are in the works for upcoming weeks.  

Another Kim of Fabric Fascination blog is the other designer for this week, and on Tuesday she shared her adorable Pincushion and Dancing Spools block that you won't want to miss :)

Here is my block ~ It's called Dancing Diamond block.  I've had a thing for Orange and Pink combinations lately! You can click Here to download a free pdf file of the block tutorial. 

One of the neat things about this Quilt Along, is that all the designers are including cutting instructions to make a 12" finished block and/or a 6" finished block, so you can make a sampler quilt with all the blocks in different sizes if you want!

Here's a quick mock-up of how 16 blocks look laid out in four rows of four blocks. When many blocks are put together the Light Pink and Solid Orange fabrics give the appearance of forming lines across the quilt :)

There's a Flickr Group too where you can get a ton of ideas from other folks' blocks, so have fun :)

Enjoy the day!

Nice block, Dawn. I like the "plaid" effect. I've been really into orange in my designs lately, too. Must be something in the air. Have a super day!

I LOVE your block design. I can see doing this in red/white/blue for soldiers, and I love making flying geese. Thanks for the pattern/tutorial.
