Free Scrappy Paper Pieced BOM - BLOCK ONE!

2015 is finally here so it is time to kick off the FREE BOM I am offering throughout this year!

I am offering two versions of this January block which is called Horizon. As you can see all the colors meet at one point, this creates a lot of bulk at the seam, so some people may prefer to do the simplified version which eliminates that issue.

Simplified Horizon Block:


This is one of my prototype blocks:

If you want to join in with this free BOM pop over to my free download site: http://adventurousquilter.yolasite.com/  the link is in my left sidebar as well anytime you want to find it. And watch that website for an upcoming hint about what March's block will be!

This block makes a terrific scrappy tote block as well! I've made two tote bags using this block pattern:
