Pretty Pairs Block of the Month quilt

I've been waiting for this day! Today I'm releasing the Pretty Pairs BOM quilt. 
This quilt features 9 different blocks - 1 per month, and then a 10th month for quilt assembly. The pattern focuses on various. methods for half-square triangle and flying geese unit piecing.
Purchase the pattern here.

For this quilt, I picked some of my favorite fabrics from Nancy Halvorsen's new line for Benartex, Wander Lane. I fell in love with the house print and ultimately chose it for my quilt backing. 

I wanted to give these blocks a fresh, modern setting, so I create a two-color sashing layout. Picking the aqua and teal prints for the sashing was an easy choice - if you've followed me for any amount of time, you know that's my favorite color! Both of those prints are stripes, which adds a cool effect to the background.

Here's a close-up of block #1. Lots of half-square triangles! 

When you purchase this pattern, you'll receive the cover with yardage requirements for the whole quilt, as well as directions for piecing block #1. At the beginning of each month, you'll receive the pattern for one quilt block. The pattern available in my Etsy shop and is 20% off through Saturday, 8/20 using code PRETTYPAIRS20.

If you're new here, welcome! I hope you'll stay and look around a bit.
