Designer Sampler Block #9

We're celebrating National Quilting Month with a Sampler Quilt created using blocks by many of our fabric designers. Throughout the month, we'll share a block made by each of the designers listed below and featuring their newest fabric line, along with directions to sew that block. Come sew with us!

Today we're featuring Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle's Jawbreaker block featuring their Warp & Weft collection.

Make the Block:

1. Press edges of the circles under ¼". Working one quadrant at a time, appliqué the circles to the base square, starting with the bottom-most circle and working up. 

2. Sew the four quadrants together to make the finished block. 

*Note: If you’d rather fuse or raw-edge appliqué the circles, reduce their diameters by ½”.
