Because of the tulips...
this block reminds me of spring:)

Block 20

When all 20 of your blocks are completed...
you will need to use your 
12 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
to trim them down to 12 1/2" square.

I'll show you what my quilt top 
looks like as soon as I decide 
how I'm doing it and 
get it sewn together:)
Of course I will give you 
all of those measurements!!

I'm not sure what the date will be
 but I do know that it will be
 BEFORE August 20th which is when my
 Autumn Love Sew Along starts.

I have really loved making these blocks
 with all of my 
Sew Simple Shapes sets together.

I hope this series has helped you to
 see how versatile they are and to think outside of the box when
 looking at each shape...
and seeing new possibilities:)
Talk to you soon!
