Ruby's Block Hop: Day 3

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 Theresa Ward from Always Quilts is sharing a classic favorite--the Dutchman's Puzzle. This block uses Flying Geese units, and we love her color combinations! Here's her blue block; see her second block and find out how to win a bundle of Ruby's Treasures on her blog.





Here's the schedule for the blog hop--be sure to visit each day!
