Ok, so apologies are in order first for the delay in posting this first block. With all my good intentions it did not happen on time. If you watched my Instagram Stories earlier today, you'll know my husband's father passed away 2 weeks ago and we are still reeling from that (and in the middle of a move to help out my mother-in-law), my darling, squishy baby boy has been fussy, and to top it all off, my Internet upload/download speeds here at the family cabin have been slower than a dinosaur (you guys, it took me 20 minutes to receive an email!), so PLEASE forgive me for posting this so late. Even with the plethora of valid excuses, I feel enormously guilty, so go easy on me!
You are all so important to me, and I'm trying to keep all my promises that I made months ago despite some of the life changes that are currently happening. This has been a welcome distraction, though, and I am over the top THRILLED to be quilting with you all.
Before we dive into Block 1, please download the Cutting and Fabric Guide (above) that will help as a reference for each block.
Below are ALL of the applique template files (for blocks 1 through 6). They are organized by color. For Block 1, you'll ONLY need some of the "Caribbean Shimmer" file and the "Graphite Shimmer" file.
Without further ado...let's get started!
Here is the download link for the Block 1 instructions that you can print off and reference:
Hi! I'm Madi Hastings, quilt pattern and surface designer! My obsessions are many, including cooking, plant science, and books, but I'll try to narrow down my geeky-ness to pattern design and quilting for the purpose of this blog!
