Tips, Tricks, and Tuts Tuesday - You've Got Mail

You've heard the expression many times and of course there's even a movie with that title "You've Got Mail".  Well now You've Got Mail in a quilt. 

This block is SEW easy to make and the quilt goes together in a jiffy.  A layer cake and some background fabric is all you need.  Missouri Star Quilt Company has a tutorial on how to make it.  You can click on the YouTube link below.

Or if you prefer a digital pattern, you can click on this link and download the pattern from Fons and Porter.  

I participated in a block drawing at one of my quilt retreats recently.  We were all given 2 layer cake squares and 2 background squares.  We made two blocks for the recipient in less than 30 minutes using the tutorial. This is the quilt laid out on the design wall.

And this is the quilt a few hours later with the borders added!  

Now how neat is that!  Marcia went home with a finished quilt; actually Marcia went home with several finished quilts.  She brought a lot of UFO's and she finished more than I usually do!
