 Since receiving my advance copy of Volume 10, I have made some blocks to include in a Christmas sampler quilt. I’ll show you a different block each day this week, enticing you to purchase the magazine and try some of the blocks for yourself.

For today, I’ll show you “Palazzo,” block #985, designed by Scott Murkin. His web address is patchworkpossibilities.com.

This pieced block was not difficult to make, BUT I had to un-sew several seams. If you look at the block closely, you will see that I used two light background fabrics. The fabric with Christmas/holiday words, a gift from my German quilting friend Julia, is directional. I wanted all the words to read right side up . . . but I inadvertantly turned some of the rectangles and squares during the sewing process. Thank goodness for seam rippers!

I can just imagine an entire quilt made with this block; an interesting secondary pattern would emerge!

Don’t forget to link to Quilty Pleasures, register for the drawing, and check out the featured designers on Day 1 of the Blog Tour.
