Come join our States Blocks block-of-the-month club beginning in 2019. The Cotton Cupboard was granted exclusive permission to copy United States Quilt Block Collection, ed. by Sandra L. Hatch and Jeanne Stauffer, a book that has been out of print for a few years. We have created both 12-inch and 6-inch paper-pieced patterns from the blocks in the book. You will have your choice of sizes and piecing methods – you could piece your blocks as anticipated by the book if you choose, or you could paper-piece them. It will be lots of fun!

making 6" blocks, plan for a total of a quarter yard per block of assorted fabrics (your choice)
making 12" blocks, plan for a total of one half yard per block of assorted fabrics (your choice)
