UPPERCASE (Paper) Quilt Block Challenge

Here’s a fun creative challenge! Whether you’re a quilter or not, everyone is invited to play with pattern.

Thanks to my son for helping me with this post!

It'll be some time before the my new Windham Collection is available in stores (November 2017) but that doesn't mean we can't have some fun with it! Let's get our creative juices flowing... by playing with paper!

1) Download and print this pdf to play with the patterns from UPPERCASE Volume 2: Dots, Dashes and Diamonds. (Or see the spread of the new fabric in issue 33.)

2) Design an original or traditional quilt block or use the patterns to create a collage. (Print out multiple copies if you need more of a particular pattern.) You can add solid white or black if you like. The finished designs should be square.


3) Take a square photo of your creation and share on Instagram with the hashtag #uppercaseblock. The creations will be displayed in an online gallery. 

Together, we’ll create a quilt design based on reader submissions. I’ll award some fabric to the favourites. Have fun!
