Lately I've had A LOT of quilt blocks bouncing around in my head. The kind of bouncing that makes it hard to sleep. We're 3 days into the year and I'm almost done with 2 quilt tops (and I even went to work today!). Anyways, while working on a quilt this afternoon I had this idea. It was the kind of idea that demanded all of my attention until I hashed it out.
I'd like to start a series of tutorials for quilt blocks that are based off of 13" squares. I chose 13" because you can divide a WOF into 3 13" squares without much waste and because it can then be trimmed down to a standard 12.5" square once the modifications are done.
My nerdy desire for alliteration led me to Start Square Sampler Saturdays. Every other Saturday (every Saturday is a bit intense for me!) I'll be posting a tutorial for a quilt block that starts from the 13" square. I'll be doing all of the tutorials from the same fabrics/colors so that I can eventually turn them into a sampler quilt. :)
I hope you'll find these tutorials handy and will perhaps join me along the way. 12.5" square blocks are perfect for the 3x6 Bee. Just sayin'. :)
