New Block Available for the Block Party!

Today is July 1st, which means a new block in the Machine Quilting Block Party is out!

So far we've pieced and quilted six fun and simple blocks and now that we've crossed the halfway point we're starting number seven - Cabin Fever.

With more than half the blocks released, this beautiful sampler quilt is starting to emerge. 

Yes, you still have time to join in this fun skill-building project!

The best way to get started is to pick up the pattern for block #1. I included a lot of extra tips and frequently asked questions in the first pattern to help you get started. Once you piece and quilt one block, you'll be ready to tackle any block in this Sunshine Surprise sampler!

Let's go quilt,
