February Block of the Month

Beth made samples of February's scrappy trip around the world block.  The tutorial is by Bonnie Hunter and can be found here.  There are so many "Scrappy Tripalong Quilts" that can be found all over Instagram, Flickr and Pinterest for inspiration.  This quilt pinned on our Pinterest board is a very pretty example.

Blocks should measure 12.5" square to finish at 12" and can be made with any of your modern fabrics.  Bring your block(s) to February's guild meeting for a chance to win them all.  Have fun!
