Traditional with a Twist ...

Today is the first Tuesday of the month and that means it's time for Quilt Block Mania blog tour day - YAY!!

September 2021- This month's FREE quilt block theme is Traditional with a Twist  with a fresh colour way straight from lavender fields.

(Quilt Block Mania Blocks are only available Free for a limited time)

This block is also known as Duck Tracks but my pattern for this quilt will be called Twirling Stars because that’s what it looks like to me… 3 beautiful stars twirling together and that’s why I’ve named it so.

Don’t you just love easy patterns that go together quickly? Well, if you do… you’re in luck, because this Twirling Stars block checks all the boxes

  • Easy
  • Quick
  • Fun

This sample uses a light background but it will also look great with a dark background and lighter stars …. Ohhhhh I can’t wait to see all the combinations!!


Here are a few colour combinations I was playing with... what do you think?

What colour way will you choose??

I can't wait to see it in the Quilting BEE!!
