Patched Works 100 Blocks of Summer – Block 81

JEN_81 Block of the day: #81

Section: Squares

Featured Quilter:  Jen

Jen says:  I strip pieced the middle portion of this block which I feel gave me a much more accurate block than had I pieced each item individually.  The pieces are so tiny; they were a little easier to control as strips.

Additional blocks made by:  Mary & Lisa

Mary says:  I strip pieced the dot with the print fabric and sub=cut to help me make this block more accurate.

Lisa says:  This block is so cute in every group of blocks I’ve seen! How can you not love the nine little windows! I made my outer border slightly larger for this block and trimmed it down with the June Tailor Get Squared ruler. I thought it made it easier to stabilize all those seams.

We encourage you to take pictures of your blocks and upload them to our Tula Pink 100 Blocks of Summer Flickr Group. If technology isn’t your thing, bring your blocks into the shop and we’ll snap a picture of them and upload them on your behalf. 

You can also keep up with our progress in many places: here on our Patched Works Fabric Jules Blog, by visiting our website or by  Following us on Facebook!

It’s never too late to join the fun.  Stop in the shop to find out more about how to get started. 

It’s always a party at Patched Works!
