It's time for a new month of Quilt Block Mania! September is all about occupations. I have three kids (12, 15, and 17) who are in various stages of figure out what they want to be when they grow up. Molly, my 15 year old is making plans to go to college to be a lawyer. She has been doing research on college majors and the various fields in the world of law (there are SO many). I hope she keeps dreaming big and working toward making her dreams a reality. I know that her persistence will keep her moving toward her goals.
In honor of Molly's future occupation, I've designed a "Scales of Justice" quilt block. Molly chose the colors and fabrics to represent the obligation of the law to weigh both sides of a case.
The Scales of Justice Quilt Block builds on the skills in my previous Quilt Block Mania patterns. This block doesn't have any intersecting seams which makes it easier than it looks. The block includes half rectangle triangles which makes it great for skill builting.
The Scales of Justice Quilt Block, along with the other QBM blocks, measure 12.5"x12.5", unfinished. Each block is FREE during the month of September, so you can combine blocks to put together your own occupation-themed quilt or pick and choose your favorites. (scroll down for the list of designers and links to their patterns). After September, my pattern will be available to purchase as a download in my shop for $6.
Plus! Be sure to join the Quilt Block Mania Facebook Group for inspiration and to share your own blocks.
