Splendid Thursday

Good Morning Quilters! This week's block is Around Four Corners by Rachaeldaisy. Easy piecing and applique- what's not to love? This was a quick little block to whip up and I love the graphic quality of the design. 
We are up to ten blocks now and I am running out of room to photograph them. Going to have to find a new spot! My tip for this week is to put Fray Check around the edges of your finished blocks. These blocks will get moved around and handled quite a bit as we go forward and you do not want your seam allowances raveling away. Not only that, you don't want one side to lose more threads than another and create the dreaded distortion. If you just run a quick line of Fray Check around each one as you finish they will remain in the pristine condition they started in! You can snag your block  here- www.thesplendidsampler.com
My side note for this week is I will be re-releasing a retired design of mine for the fall. This is Pumpkin Blossoms. This pattern has remained extremely popular and I have decided to release it for fall. Look for the pattern in my online shop in the next week or so. Until then....

Happy Quilting, Dawn
