New block design..........

Designed another block this past week.  And stayed in a similar profile to the latest two blocks before this one.   Did this because I'm thinking of putting them together into a single quilt and want them all to work together.  =)

The sample I made of the new pattern was done in hot pink, orange and navy blue for the background.    Finished size is 12".

First two blocks in the series were the two shown at the bottom.  With one more design, I'm thinking that I might could come up with a nice lap quilt.

And then write up the pattern to offer on Craftsy as either a full quilt pattern (lap quilt size), or as individual block patterns.    These are all pp'd patterns which makes really nice points.

One thing I'm trying to figure out is how much to price the patterns at for a full quilt pattern or as individual block patterns.   Guess I need to do some exploring online to see what others are pricing them at.   If you were to buy something like this as either an individual block pattern or a full pattern for a lap quilt, how much would you be willing to pay?

Gratitudes:
1. Travel to/from the reunion was good (well with the exception of narrow seats on the plane!).

2. Beautiful weather in Southern CA for the reunion and my time there.

Very nice block! You're a natural designer!

Adore the striking new block, an individual priced block is up my alley. Please advise to me at kingcooper0001@aol.com, when it is available, all 3 are great, but I am drawn to the pinks, paper pieced too.

I'm glad you had a great time in CA! For individual blocks, paper pieced, I see $3-4 at Quilt Art, which is Sew Cute Patterns on Craftsy. Hers are more appliqué-like. If you make it into a pillow, you can double that. As a whole pattern, with the directions for stripping/borders, I see $6-9, depending on designer. $8-9 seems to be more common recently. Those are Craftsy prices.

I love your designs. Those block patterns just stand up and say "Look at me". So glad you had a great time at your reunion. You are amazing with all that energy.
