Here we are at the very last block of the sew along! You should all be experts at using BlockBase now and I hope that you had fun picking out your own block. I can’t wait to see all the variety in this link up! Since we all made our own choice, make sure to write the BlockBase number of your block in the comment box (and maybe tell us why you choose it too!).
I choose block #1931:
As you can imagine, it was not easy to choose only 12 blocks from the over 4000 available in the software (tough job, right?). Eventually I was able to narrow it down to 20 blocks and this was one of the blocks on that list.
To Link Up Your Photo
Scroll down to the comment form at the end of this post. Fill in your info and make sure you select an image for your comment (this will be the photo of your block).
If you have a blog, make sure to add your site too. If you wrote a post for this block, please link directly to that post. Let’s visit each others’ blogs and all get to know each other!
You can link up your Block 12 photo at any time. But for those who link up by Monday, April 1, 12 noon EST, you’ll be entered in a little giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a priority mail envelope filled with fabric scraps. Because who doesn’t need a little more fabric?!
The Block 11 Link Up Giveaway winner was Chris Silva.
THE BIG FINISH
Let’s talk finished quilts! Have you already starting sewing your blocks together? Or do you have a nice stack of finished blocks now that you don’t know what to do with? Well get crackin’ because we’ll have a BBSA Finished Quilt Link Up on Monday, April 29!
If you also have EQ7 and would like to use it to help plan your layout, you can refer back to this post on how to use BlockBase and EQ7 together. Since you already have photos of all your sew along blocks, you may also find this post helpful for designing quilts around already-sewn blocks.
Did you know that EQ7 has a library of layouts specifically designed for Block-of-the-Months/Sew Alongs? Check it out here: LIBRARIES > Layout Library > Basics by Style > Twelve 12 Inch Blocks. Even if you didn’t make your blocks at 12″, these layouts are great for inspiration! Here’s a layout I whipped up using my block photos and the last layout in that library:
(Don’t worry, I’m not spoiling my quilt reveal- my blocks aren’t all the same size anyway!)
BBSA Quilt Label
I thought it would be fun to give you all a label for your finished sew along quilt! You can print the quilt label on printable fabric (perhaps EQ Printables?) and then write in your personal info on the lines with a fabric marker.
Click here to download the label. The label is a PDF file and you should. I would suggest printing a test label on regular paper before printing on fabric, to ensure the label prints as you expect (and you don’t waste a sheet of fabric!).
So get out there and get sewing! I hope to see lots of finished quilts on April 29!
