    I really like the new June Twirling Propeller Block. It has such interesting “movement,” but your instructions make it seem simple.

    I really like the looks of this twirling propeller block and think an entire quilt with this block would be fun done scrappy.

    As a long time customer & followers ( 30yrs). I am perplexed as to why a winner can not be chosen from Alaska Or Hawaii for that matter. ? why 48 contiguous states? Flare rate ships to AK? This does not “seam’ right. I purchased the materials for this quilt. , I purchase from your site. It makes it to Alaska.

    Disappointed in Alaska

    I really like this month’s twirling propellor block. The applique technique demonstrated makes it doable for every skill level. Happy heavenly birthday to Nancy. She’s with us still.

    Red and white quilts are my favorites but I have bittersweet memories about this. I remember how I’d look forward to Nancy’s block of the month blogs. I miss her.

    I like the June block. The tutorials for the block make this curvy twist on a pinwheel block look easy.

  • Susan

    The Twirling Propeller design is really unique and provides a sense of movement.

  • Janice

    I didn’t see size of finished block?
    Also, I have a question about March blocks.
