“You would never break the chain”
So, we really didn’t choose our blocks based on songs, but it is always wonderful when when of them creates an earworm for a while.
This week is Malvina’s Chain. It really is a simple block, with a bit of a challenge thrown in. There are 9 hour glass blocks, which are simple enough to create…if they were all two color blocks. LOL! Two of the blocks in Malvina’s Chain have THREE colors, so it’s a bit of a twist and a bit of a think through. Please be sure to read all the directions first!
Malvina’s Chain Block Pattern can be purchased at Shoppe Lovingly Lissa
We are getting closer and closer to the end of the Quilt Concert! If you are missing a block, there is plenty of time to catch up. Visit The Not So Dramatic Life Etsy for cutting instructions and all even numbered blocks, Shoppe Lovingly Lissa is where you will find the odd blocks.
Our Sponsor this Week
Color Girl Quilts is our wonderful sponsor this week. Check out her great patterns and curated fabric bundles. Sharon has a wonderful way with color and fabrics and always knows the exact right ones to put together (I’m really jealous of this). Also, she is the creator of the Classic Curves Ruler, seriously people, if you ever wanted to create a quilt with a curve this is the ruler to do it with!!! I lost all fear of creating curves with this ruler.
Sharon will be sending one U.S. Concert Goer this fabric bundle from the Aerial line by Tamara Kate for Windham Fabrics. I have loved this line since it came out and have managed to find uses for at least three of the fabrics, so you may have seen them recently in my feed. (Or even in this post, hint hint)
