Over at Craftmad we are swapping 12" blocks each month. Our partner gets to choose the colours and the sewer gets to choose the patterns. I was partnered with Beth for this swap and she asked for pastel colours. I found this fantastic block tutorial called "U Pick" . The tutorial has you cutting out a certain amount of shapes which I did for three blocks, do a small amount of sewing and then decide how you want to assemble the block. The pieces can be assembled four different ways creating four different blocks.
