Rebekah's blocks for November



I mailed out the fabric for my month this evening, so here are the directions for the blocks.

I'd like you to make a 15" block that features squares and rectangles, but is not made with nesting squares or log cabins. Here's a mosaic of quilt inspiration.

quilt inspiration

I included 5 different prints and 2-3 solid fabrics in each package. One of the solids is a large piece, so if you could make the large piece that you receive the predominant color, that would be great. I'm going to be putting the blocks together with a grey solid once I receive them all.

If you want to add some embroidery or machine stitching to the block, I would love it, but a "plain" block is great too.

If you have any questions or need more fabric, let me know!
