Its August 1 and that means its time for me to introduce the next block on my Wicked and Wonderful PFMSQ. According to its birth mom, this little guy’s name is Icky Thump…I kid you not. This block was originally part of the Block Rock’n Series by Julie Hirt and was named in honour of a Grammy Winning Rock and Roll song by “the White Stripes” way back in the early 2000s. You can go see her version of the block here at 627handworks.com.
This block, like all the others in my sampler quilt, is an easy peasy paper-pieced block that a confident beginner could accomplish in an hour or less. It looks stunning in the bright and bold colours that Julie Hirt used in her original version and I love it in the calmer colorway that I chose.
I hope you are enjoying this journey as much as I am. Already I’m getting excited to see how this quilt is going to look when its finished, quilted and bound in January, 2019. Stay tuned.
