August 2020 - Back To School - Quilt Block Mania

The #QuiltBlockMania is a BOM with the participation of several quilt pattern designers. Each month you will get a color scheme and several 12" x 12" free block patterns from different designers. The same color scheme, size and theme will allow you to easily assemble the various blocks into a quilt.
