Last month I was presented with the amazing opportunity to test a new block called "80's Geese" by Diane from From Blank Pages fame. I've tested patterns by her in the past and they have all been marvelous. Seriously. Marvelous! If you've never worked from one of Diane's patterns, you need to! Okay, enough fangirl-ing.
The best part about this block is that Diane asked some of her testers to make the block for a charity quilt! I love that so much and here's why. I have never sewn or quilted for charity before but recently I have felt the call on my heart to do just that. I was looking for a way to give back when this opportunity came along. Of course, I jumped at it. The lovely Jill from Crafty Giraffe (@crafty_giraffe on IG) will be putting together all the blocks into a quilt top. Here is a sneak peak of the blocks so far (I totally swiped this picture from Jill's IG feed.)
This quilt is going to look so good and I can't wait to see it when it's finished!
Here are the details:
The block is a 12" finished, paper-pieced pattern by From Blank Pages called 80's Geese. The pattern comes in 4 different block sizes - 6", 9", 12", and 18". It is available as a PDF purchase from Diane's pattern shop. You can purchase each size separately or you can purchase the bundle with all four sizes. And if you sign up for Diane's newsletter you get a nifty 20% off discount code! The pattern is chock full of goodies. It comes with coloring sheets, design ideas, cutting templates (my personal favorite), and cheater templates.
Here are some From Blank Pages patterns I've made in the past.
