We will be starting the Free Maggie’s First Dance Block of the Month soon- Yippee!! One of my favorite things about the design process is playing with colors and prints. I had a ton of fun playing with the BOM pattern, seeing what it would look like made with all kinds of fabrics.

Here is the original:

After I made these designs, I wanted to see what a quilt would like if I made a quilt just with the setting blocks. I love these quilt designs! The simple repetition of the same block looks really cool. It’s also a great way to showcase novelty fabrics or medium-large scale prints in the centers of the blocks.
