Catch yourself a Patchsmith Butterfly Bargain

The Patchsmith’s Butterfly Patch Mug Rug pattern has just become even better value.  

I've updated the Mug Rug pattern to include perfectly sized templates to make a 6” Butterfly Patch quilt block. 

And the good news is - the pattern still costs only $1.99.
So what are you waiting for?   Flutter over to my Butterfly Patch and catch yourself a butterfly today. 

(p.s. If you've already purchased the Butterfly Patch Mug Rug Pattern go to your Craftsy pattern library and redownload it.  The updated version will include the additional templates.)

Simple Square Sampler Quilt Block

Sometimes you will find yourself one or two blocks short for a sampler quilt.  Look no further than the Simple Square – it’s quick to make but very versatile.

It is also a very quick 6" block to match with one of the fun sidebars from my One Block pattern book:
Available for immediate download from Craftsy
or in paperback format from Amazon

To make a 6” Simple Square block (finished size) you will need:
One 3½” for the center square.
Two 2” x 3½” outer rectangles
Two 6½” x 2” out rectangles. 

To make a 12” Simple Square block (finished size) you will need:
One 6½” for the center square.
Two 3½” x 6½” outer rectangles
Two 12½” x 3½” out rectangles. 

As I said it is very simple to put together .....

And the clever thing about this block is it can look different every time you make it - perfect as a Sampler Quilt filler.  
I saw the first daisies of the year today - but not this many!
