I just released a new set of blocks on Craftsy and I am really excited about them! They are called “Round the Blocks” and there are two 14.5″ versions. Version A is 10 squares in a circle and Version B is 14. You can also choose to make your background from one piece of fabric, or scrappy.
The pattern comes with all the paper-piecing templates you will need, plus a full tutorial on paper-piecing and setting in full circles. They go together quite easily and I love figuring out new combinations of fabrics to create new looks.
Heidi at Fabric Mutt did a pattern test for me and she made an amazing Storytelling pillow. I originally saw this idea at Plum and June last year and it is such a great gift idea (note to self:make one for Emmeline for Christmas).
I made a sample and it was so much fun, that I just kept going!

Briar Rose Low Volume
Fussy Cut Sunburst
I have plans (in ALL my free time..ha,ha) to make a full quilt, but I’m still trying to decide what I want it to look like. I may keep going with the Briar Rose and make a bed quilt for Emmeline.
I also think it would be fun to make a bold quilt where each block is unique:
(I sampled colors from Koi by Rashida Coleman-Hale for this mock-up)
and of course, I always love a rainbow quilt:
