Ruby's Block Hop: Day 1

We're bringing you another blog hop this week! 
Six designers have been playing with the Vintage 30's Ruby's Treasures collection by Barbara J. Eikmeier. They've chosen blocks from Ruby Short McKim's book, 101 Patchwork Patterns (download here--this is such a fantastic resource for blocks). You'll also have a chance to win some of this beautiful fabric for yourself!


Today's block comes from the fabric designer herself, Barb Eikmeier! She's stitched the Eight Pointed Star block in two different colorways. Head over to her blog to learn more and enter to win a fabric bundle. 



Here's the schedule for the blog hop--be sure to visit each day! 
Friday 11/4: Barb Eikmeier @Barb's Favorites
