Ruby's Block Hop: Day 5

Two more days left on our Ruby's Block blog hop! 
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!



Reeze Hanson from Morning Glory Designs picked a fabulous block called Sky Rocket from Ruby's book. Rather than deal with templates or set-in seams, she converted the design to paper piecing. Perfect points every time! We love the color combo she chose; head over to her blog to find the tutorial, see the second block, and enter for a chance to win fabric! 



Here's the schedule for the blog hop--be sure to visit each day! 
Friday 11/4: Barb Eikmeier @Barb's Favorites
Monday 11/7: Donna Lynn Thomas @DonnaLynnThomasQuilter

  23. Thank you so much for introducing me to Ruby's patterns. I've never seen it before. It's so nice to have one source for all those classic vintage blocks. I also like the modern methods that some of the blogger's used to make those blocks. Karen
