Stitch That Stash 2014

Propeller Block by 
as a guest blogger on Sew We Quilt (pattern found here)
for Stitch That Stash Quilting Bee Group

I was looking for a fun, but super easy block & first went to Gen X Quilters where they currently have 328 block tutorials, so if you don't have your block picked out, you may want to start there. Then I hopped to Sew We Quilt (link above) to the tutorial by That Girl Runs With Scissors (link above). I'm going for the red, brown, green palette & used Kona white for the background. I like the idea of a fussy cut center, but I'm not looking for a novelty fabric there.  If the fabric you choose doesn't have something to be fussy cut, that's ok too. The reds can range from a dark red to a more true red without being too bright. The browns can be chocolate to a darker tan & greens leaning toward olive to apple green. It doesn't have to be tone on tone if the fabric has the color scheme in it. The only fabric I'm not big on is batiks. You are all quilters, so I'm sure you can see what I'm going for here. The finished block is 8" & if you could please make 2 for me, that would be great! 

If you have any questions, please ask it here so I can answer for everyone. I hope I covered all the bases! Looking forward to what you create! Kris should have my address, but I'll send out a reminder the end of the month with my address again. Don't forget to use the hashtag #stitchthatstash in IG, post your finished blocks on flickr & let me know when you ship yours. Good luck!

Thanks for visiting!
