 or ask at your LQS for the fabrics you've seen here....

July's One Block Wonder is called Brilliant Cluster

Now what, right? Same question every month...😉...I bet some of you have skipped down to check out what the block looks like joined together before you every read a word of this blog post....😂
That's ok, I would do the same thing...

Now I know this isn't much of a cluster, but when you are finished making blocks each of your outer corners will make a small star too.
What if you are only making four blocks....
just add a pieced border....

and then turn your cute mini into a fantastic zippered pillow....
I use the tutorial on Sew Mama Sew by Autum

and the back is just as cute...

Well that's it for this month's pattern and tutorial...Can't wait to see what you come up with!

But a few more things to share......

I am working on a quilt top right now in Jardin Gris from RJR Fabrics, using this month's block pattern and it is turning out fantastic.....
I love being able to share two totally different looks for this pattern....

I'm loving these florals and pretty, soft and tranquil....they just make me smile....

I love how the pink just pops in these blocks!!

and this months prize has been generously donated by
