This weeks block is 
Treasure Trove

Here is mine using 
This fabric screams Spring to me!
I love it!
First I sorted out my Jolly Bar by color family!

This helps you choose which ones you will use in the block
Choose (8) 
 (if you have 4 color families such as I did, 2 of each)!
If you look at the center of the finished block it should have 
all (8) fabrics in it!
That is how I knew I did it right.

The Perfect 10 ruler is great for cutting
 half inches and inches up to 10”s!
It makes cutting a breeze!

Cutting instructions in the book is for a full quilt not just one block!
For one block you are going to take those (8) blocks and cut: 

A - 1
B - 1
C -1

From your background fabric:

D - 8
F - 8

Then proceed to put them together as described in the book! 

They chain piece easily together!
The block is easy to do and looks beautiful when done!

See you next Week when we sew Homecoming!
