November Blocks!

This month you'll be making concentric square blocks.

Size: 10" square (finished)
Colors: yellow, grey, white, and/or light blue

Other guidelines:
  • Press seams open (if you’re worried about the seams unravelling, just shorten your stitch length a little bit and everything should be fine)
  • Don’t feel like you have to use all of the same fabric in a given “ring” of the block – a scrappier look is ok
  • The "rings" can be any width you like (all of the "rings" don't have to be the same width in a given block)
  • Not more than three “rings” surrounding the center square
  • Non-wonky, please
  • I’m going for something light, fresh, and clean
I'm pretty sure no one needs a tutorial for this block (it's pretty basic), so I didn't put one together, but if you want to see some photos of a block like this coming together, here's a pretty good link.  (Scroll down about half way, past all the cutting instructions, since those don't apply here.)

Let me know if you've got any questions, and thank you in advance for your lovely creations!
