#quiltblockmania Back to School blockShow Up and Shine!
This block incorporates what I love about quilting and how I get ready to try new things. I love patchwork blocks and the churn dash block was the first block I made in my first internet block swap in the late 1990s. I still find new ways to incorporate it into my quilt designs.
When I think about school for me as a child, it was always about getting those gold stars! And while I still think wanting to do well in school is a great thing, I know it's even more important to feel good about yourself before the star shows up. The star in this block is a reminder to enjoy the process too.
This is a free pattern for the pieced 12 1/2" unfinished block.
The block is part of a group of blocks released by quilt designers August 4, 2020.
