Scott Hansen from Blue Nickel Studios designed the February block of the month for the 2018 Aurifil Designers based on the woods and travel he has been on recently with his wife. Visit the Auribuzz blog for all the details on the Birch Ball block.
I selected and prepped my fabric for the block just before packing to go to QuiltCon so that when I got home, I’d have something fun to sew together. I stayed with Scott’s suggestion of yellow, and I love the owl print I found to use around the edge of the block. We have screech owls that nest near our home and my husband and I love to hear them when we happen to be on a walk in the evening.
If you are sewing along, each month one person who links up their pieced block wins a 12 large spool kit, and there are usually 25-30 entries. So don’t forget to link up your version with Pat Sloan for your chance to win. The versions already shared this month are lovely!
I think my two blocks coordinate pretty well so far! The next block will be released on March 15th.
