I drew up the block in Touchdraw (graphic design app for iPad) finishing at 14.5" and posted it on Instagram to see whether anyone else knew the block. It turns out it's called Castle Walls and Amy Badskirt had drawn up an even larger version of the same block and had posted a tutorial for it on Sew Mama Sew a while back. This is definitely a block I'd like to make into a whole quilt although those y seams are a bit daunting.
And finally, I found out that the quilt I made from Makower using their Oriental line a few months back will be on the front cover of British Patchwork & Quilting this month.
See you next week!
