So, I'm trying to do my part to spread love and positivity by introducing you to the Love All Around Block by May Chappell (aka Lee Monroe.) I was thrilled when she asked if I would like to participate. I'm a long-time fan of her stuff (and she's pretty awesome too), so I jumped at the chance.
Here's where you can find the tutorial - Love All Around Tutorial.
I think that Lee's instructions in the tutorial are easy to follow, and she provides excellent tips. If you haven't had the chance to try one of her patterns, this is a great way to get a feel for her style of pattern writing.
The block works very well for a variety of fabric styles, color palettes, or designers. As for mine, I opted to use some beautiful fabrics from the Seventy Six collection by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics] that I found at Circa 15 Fabric Studio.

The 8" block (finished size) goes together quickly, and it's a great block to use for practicing your piecing accuracy (if you are into that type of stuff.) Most importantly, in my opinion, it's a fun block to make.
|Voila! One block down and an undetermined amount to go!|
Once I figure out the plan, I'll post an update! For now, go check out the Love All Around Tutorial on maychappell.com!
