Block Sixteen, Mariner 24 Draws MMDQ to a Close!

The last block of the #MMDQ Block of the Month Quilt is now up on my blog.

Called Mariner24 after the 24-needle compass that it features, this block looks much more difficult to piece than it actually is. You can find the block instrcutions and pattern here.
 With this, all sixteen blocks of this quilt have been posted. Unbelievable how time has flown! I hope you will find as much satisfaction and pleasure from making these quilt blocks as I did from designing and drafting them. I take this opportunity to thank all the Desi Quilters who tested these blocks for me and who encouraged me with their kind words at every stage.
The blocks are versatile because of their size - a 15" circle set in an 18" square.  They can be used as stand-alone runners, for cushion covers, for long runners using 3 or 4 blocks. You could use 4 blocks in a square for a table cloth or with borders and sashing for a lap quilt! So, what would make me really happy would be to see more of us attempt these blocks!

Happy Quilting!
