It's time to share our blocks, and inspire each other in this fantastic quilting community!

Today it would be the day where I share the Textured patch block, but I had people visiting this month so no time for sewing :) hopefully by next week I will be able to make the block and share it... if not, we will have 2 next month :)

If you didn't hear about the QAL before, please visit the Starry Bright Sky QAL page
Visit the QAL page to find all information about the quilt layout, all the future blocks and the rules to participate.
I recommend you to subscribe to the QAL announcements via email, so you don't miss out on future posts! You find the subscription form on the same QAL page (at the bottom).

This month technique is Curved Piecing,
and we have two fun blocks to create!

Remember that the pattern for the blocks is shared for free via email.
For the full list of rules and explanation on how/where to share your projects, please refer to the post listing all the QAL rules and to the post with my self-interview.

And if you need an extra incentive, we are going to have FOUR winners for this month. 


I will draw the random winners between all the people entering a picture of one blocks from this month. Multiple blocks will give you multiple entries, as long as they are in separate picture in a separate link in the linky :). I will announce the winners after I share the next month pattern.

The DEADLINE to share the finished block(s) to get the next pattern for FREE is
July 1st, 2018, 11:59 EST

So the side event will be a collection of TEXTURED blocks!
I will personally use these four-patch textured blocks as "sashing" for my main QAL blocks.
I will make a big 72'' x 84'' quilt, with 21 blocks for the QAL and many textured blocks.
You can see the layout I plan to use in this previous post.

If you don't want to make so many textured blocks, I would still encourage to try few of them!
You can use them as label, or to make matching pillows or table runners... the options are endless!!

So for today's post...

I present you the next block of the textured four-patches, which is 
Cross Tucking

IMPORTANT: In the PDF pattern I do not explain the steps to make the block.
I provide the measurements of our specific finished block size, with some tips on color selection and assembly guidelines from a complete beginner's point of view!
The step-by-step instructions can be found on Teresa's blog.
