Back to School-Quilt Block Mania

My favorite time of the year is approaching fast---Back to school!  The next #QuiltBlockMania series will get you in the mood!

As a teacher, I loved the fresh start to a school year.  New students, new supplies, and new opportunities to share my knowledge.

As a student, getting ready for school with new supplies was exciting!  My favorite thing to shop for was crayons.  I loved all the colors and choices.
So it was easy to create this fun foundation paper piecing block focusing on my favorite medium in grade school.

If you are new to foundation paper piecing, be sure to join my Linda B Creative Facebook Group where I will be giving a demonstration of foundation paper piecing.

I believe that my love of color began at an early age!  Now instead of crayons, it has evolve into fabrics.  Can anyone else relate?


  1. Fun pattern! Perfect for the Back to School theme.

  2. These crayons are so much fun, and I bet they would look fabulous as a full quilt!

    1. I think they would also! Be sure to share what you do with the block!
