Wine Bottle Quilt Block

As some of you know, if you subscribe to my newsletter, I recently started a new part time job as a liquor store clerk. I wasn't sure I was going to like but it's actually not a bad job! And, BONUS!, I've lost six pounds already from all the lifting and carrying of liquids! :)

Anyway, sometimes it can be a bit boring, as all jobs can be, and then my mind will occasionally wander. As you know, I am prone to daydreams of quilts. So anyway, I was stocking the wine shelves one day and this block idea came to me. When I got home I drew it out on graph paper. It took me a few weeks to get a chance to actually test and tweak the block design and I am happy to say that today I released a block pattern! I have quilt designs coming but the block design is ready to go. Here it is! This is a 4" x 12" finished block.


I am having loads of fun fussy cutting wine bottle labels from my favorite Heather Ross prints. There are a lot of very cool wine bottle labels out there I have noticed so we can pretty much put anything we want on our quilt wine bottles and they will be true to life. :)

This block pattern is available now in my Etsy and Craftsy shops. Cheers!
