Sewing Tutorial- How to make a Mayflower Quilt Block

Hey there Makers,

I always get so excited when AGF releases a new fabric collection! Did you know we release around two or more fabric collections a month! It's hard to not be inspired by all the amazing prints, substrates, and free sewing patterns that is created and showcased in the beautiful pages of the lookbooks. Today I want to draw your attention to the cutest new collection called Campsite! I can't even begin to choose a favorite print from this collection, it showcases so many cute critters you would find on a camping trip like fire flies, foxes and deer. What's a camping trip without s'mores! For all of you with a sweet tooth check out the print "Campfire Sweets".  

 

I knew right away I needed to choose a quilt block that will showcase the cute elements in the Campfire collection which is why I choose the Mayflower Block! I love the scrappy look it has while still being a great block to show off all the cute fabrics. I used eight different fabrics to create this block playing with light and darker prints.

When I was growing up I was a proud member of the Girl Scouts community. Every year we would have a big camping trip where we would meet so many other Girl Scout troops throughout our state of Minnesota! It was so fun meeting new friends and becoming closer to old ones! I loved cooking food over the fire and telling ghost stories! 

Happy Valentine's Day,
