About Eye Candy, Mental Blocks and Blocks Round the Year

I see to have hit some kind of a mental block trying to do calculations for the Layout Option 3 for the Round the Year Quilt. So I decided to share the real blocks that people have been making, using the free Block of the Month patterns on this blog!  Links to the patterns for these blocks are given towards the end of this post.

A few of the Dahlia blocks had been shared earlier, on  this post. Here comes some more magic…

After Anuradha finished this block, I came across a picture of a gemstone that is uncannily similar to her block – the Ametrine.

Isn’t that amazing?

Before I sign off to do more calculations on the third layout option for the quilt, I will let you have a peek at what I am designing…
