Can you tell we are getting close to the end of Quilt Concert 2022? This week we are making the Connection Collection blocks! This group of blocks works with the blocks you have already constructed to help create the final layout.
Week 10 Instructions
This week is about simple components to complete the design including half square triangles, strip sets, and Nine-patch blocks.
The instructions are available to download for free through 11:59pm Eastern on Sunday, August 7, 2022. If you miss the free download, you can purchase the Block 9 instructions alone for $2 through 11:59pm Eastern on Thursday, August 18, 2022. The full pattern is available for purchase at any time.
Sponsor and Prize of the Week
Aurifil is back as this week’s sponsor! They make my favorite thread, and this week one of you will get to share in the fun!
Aurifil is an accomplished Italian company based in Milan, specializing in the production of 100% Cotton threads from the Mako region of Egypt. The threads have achieved worldwide success thanks to a dedicated collective of quilters, sewists, embroiderers, and textile artists who herald the thread for its versatility, its strength, and the fact that it produces virtually no lint.
One lucky winner anywhere in the world will receive a three pack of 40wt thread from the 2021 color builder series! The winner will choose from one of the twelve boxes and will receive the thread along with a foundation paper piecing block pattern (that I designed!) inspired by the endangered species that inspired the color palette for that month.
