Center of Attention–30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days with Creatin in the Sticks

This was the most perfect block for me to do today for Creatin in the Sticks “30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days” Blog Hop and Quilt Along since today is my birthday!

I am running a bit behind on the other blocks but I’m finding I’m quickly catching up – I have seven plus the 15th block – Center of Attention done already!  My middle daughter Capri has also started making these to create a baby quilt for her aunt.  It’s a great pattern for a beginner and she’s doing a wonderful job with it!

I have to admit I woke up with a stomach bug so I’ll be posting LOTS more pictures on Instagram on our progress … just not today.  I posted my very first block HERE if you want to check it out.

Head over to Carla’s blog to see what other designers are up to and join in the fun!  I promise it’s not too late to catch up!

  12. Happy Birthday from Nebraska. Sorry to hear you're under the weather in more ways than one? I hear there's been snow in WI--on April 15th no less. Our predicted 8" resulted in less than 1" here.

  19. Happy Birthday! The "rule" is that if you're sick on your birthday, you get to extend the celebrations for an entire week once you're up to snuff! Love this simple block and the great variations in using it! Now get better!
