Making the Repository Block

Since so many new followers are smitten with Repository Block that I designed for the Accuquilt Block Contest, I decided it was time to make it. I'm loving the finished block.


It's all foundation paper-pieced. And the pattern is fairly simple to make. For a 14-inch block, it require 13 various scraps of fabric and 1/2-yard for the background fabric. The idea for this pattern came from looking at entomology art.

I am overwhelmed with joy over how many new followers my blog now has. The comments from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway have delighted me. THANK YOU! There is still time to enter my giveaway if you have not already done so.

With much gratitude, I will make the Repository Block into a free pattern which should be finished next week. The Giddy and Luminary Blocks will be made into quilt patterns later this summer.

There is still time to vote in the Accuquilt Block Contest too. Here are my submissions. Thank you for taking the time to vote!
