Hi there, i know some of us are making more than the 12 QAL blocks to get a bigger quilt. What about collecting these designs here to inspire each other?

I´ll start with my first two, # 1 Denise`s Star

# 2 Wild Duck

summer sampler block A

www.quilterscache.com is a great source to find blocks. Though it is a bit hard to navigate you can look for 12" blocks! They end up to be 12,5" incl seam allowance so they fit perfectly.

Great!
I`d like to sew 20 blocks. I thought about sewing some of the blocks twice. But to have other blocks (with tutorials) is much more better!
Thank you

Love your blocks!
I am going to make duplicates of some of the Summer Sampler Series blocks, too. I don't think anyone will be writing up additional tutorials, but if I make additional blocks, I will include measurements :)

It can be made with the templates from the Evening Star since the Quilter's Cache is for an 8" star.

Ooh, I love everyone's blocks. I had a few I was going to make, and then had the opportunity to long arm my quilt this week, so I decided to make blocks I already knew how to make. :)
