Scenic Route - A FREE Quilt Block Pattern!

What a fun line-up for Quilt Block Mania this month! There more than a dozen bloggers offering FREE patterns for quilt blocks inspired by the theme "travel!" 

I named my block "Scenic Route" because it reminds me of a winding road, but it was really inspired by the road sign that my boys call "the wiggle sign!" It means curved road ahead, but whenever we see one, everyone in our car wiggles!

Quilts go to the library!

Friday, June 11, 2021

Have you ever read a children's book and noticed a quilt in the illustrations? After having my first son a little more than eight years ago, we started reading bedtime stories - and I started spotting quilts in the books! It didn't take long before I wanted to recreate the quilts.

Fast forward to this month, and that long-time dream has become a reality!

Quilts from children's books

After months (okay, maybe years!) of preparation, I made ten quilts from the illustrations in children's books. All ten are currently on display at my local library for the month of June!
