The catch-up block making is really on a roll now! This week I have Block #22 for you and two of the past blocks, too. And, they're each stitched in two of my collections. Yukata, released in Spring 2022 and Kawa, shipping in September 2022 - next month!
This week's block, Star Patch, was designed by Sherri McConnell. I love the way it looks in semi-neutral tones from my Yukata collection (available right here).
And, then in Kawa! The sharp contrasts are amazing and Sherri's block looks so different with these values. Time to make your own now! You'll find instructions on Sherri's blog by clicking here. For more of Sherri's wonderful quilting and designing, follow her on Instagram - @aquiltinglife.
So, let's back up a little now and visit some catch-up blocks. This is Block 14, Bird on a Branch designed by Jan Patek. It's a delightful example of the joy of applique and my Yukata collection made a very sweet block with the perfect branch fabric!
The Kawa version features colors that are a little more stylized and very cheery. I'm thrilled with both of them! Click here for instructions for Jan's block. For more quilting inspiration, follow Jan Patek on Instagram @jan_patek_quilts
My last catch-up for this week is Block 15, designed by Crystal Manning. Highland Plaid is a great opportunity for combining prints and colors. In Yukata, it takes on a striking, yet subtle appearance that I love.
But, in Kawa, Highland Plaid becomes a bold contrast of Indigo and creamy white. So different and equally as striking as the Yukata version in it's own way!
