Craftmad Quilt Block - Lovers Knot


Once again, I am taking part in the Craftmad Quilt Block Swap.  This year, each month we have a new partner and we are swapping a block in the partners chosen colours and the sewer chooses the block pattern.  I have asked for purples and whites and hope to put together a quilt for my daughter at the end of the year.

My partner for January asked for Burgundy, Pink and Cream.  These are the fabrics I had in my stash that I think fit the criteria.  I have gone with a Lovers Knot design and followed the tutorial over at Quilters Cache website.  Interestingly,  when my partner received this block she referred to it as a Double Wrench pattern when I googled I saw more images of it as a Double Wrench.  Now that I look at the photo here I am very happy with how neat this block has turned out.  

Come on over to Craftmad as we are always looking for more members to join in our Quilt Block Swaps.

Edit: we are swapping 12" blocks.
