Welcome to the first block of First Notes! This one is one of our favorites, although I will admit I have many favorites in this quilt.

The block is actually two traditional blocks in one. The center block of the Fox and Geese block is a plain square, but we added in the Double T for a bit more interest. I really love the way the Double T looks on its own, it’s a great block to put into a grid, it creates a variety of secondary designs depending on you lay it all out.

This pattern is now available on my Etsy site for $2

Just a reminder that cutting instructions are no longer available to download for free, but you can purchase the cutting instructions at Cassandra’s Etsy store for $2.

Week Two Sponsor

Our fantastic Sponsor for Week Two is Becky Campbell of Sewforever Quilting.

Becky has written a special post for this Quilt Concert participants, so be sure to check it out.

The prize this week is a set of Lucy Boston templates from the English Paper Piecing Made Modern series.

“Reusable self-stick templates enable you to precisely cut and efficiently straight stitch shapes with no pre-turning, basting/gluing. Straight-stitch by hand or machine instead of tradition whip-stitching, saving time and improving results. Move the templates from task to task with no residue and nothing to pull out later.”
