National Days Blocks

So I've been thinking for a while that it would be fun to make some blocks based on the different National Days, according to  the National Days Calendar. So the other day, when it was National Button Day, I thought I'd just go for it! So I did a button block, shown below, and planned to do a tutorial for it, but then I realized it was really similar to a pattern that was already on the market, so I decided to forego the tutorial for it. But here it is, the block that finally started it all on Nov. 16, 2019. National Button Day.

I will be including tutorials for all of the other blocks I do, though. Just for fun! I plan to make one here and there, when the mood strikes or when the National Day inspires a fun block, and hopefully eventually have enough to make a National Days scrap quilt! It will only be made from scraps and all done with traditional piecing. The blocks will all be 8". I'll link the different blocks and their tutorials here. ­čí╗ (To see a quick video compilation of the first 84 blocks, click *here*)

This is so much fun!! I look forward to it everyday you post. Keep up the good work!!

I have not been able to access your strawberry, Dr. Seuss or music blocks for some reason. Had no problems with any of the previous blocks though, go figure???? Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Have been thoroughly enjoying your creativity! Thanks so much.

Patti said...

Please don't worry about trying to kept up! I doubt that any of us have them all done away. We will get this done sooner or later. You do are doing a great job.

Kelli, you are just so much fun! Thank you for the cute blocks! All of them! I have several to make for grandkids. Thanks again.

Thank you Kelli for the fun National Day of quilt blocks. Will the different block patterns be available for a while like several of your other sew along quilts? Sure hoping so, since I have enjoyed seeing what you've come up with each day, even though I chose not to sew along, but have now changed my mind, and want to sew the different blocks and use it as an eye spy quilt for my 5 year old grandson. Thanks for all the wonderful quilt patterns!! Sandy PS - My older grandson still loves his Minecraft quilt. I sewed the various blocks, and then did the dragon on the back, so he has choices on which side he wants to see on his bed. Thank you so much!

Please come back. I am having fun with national days but haven't seen anything since December

So grateful & thrilled to see your creativity once again even though you can't sew right now! Life has a way of altering best made plans. We are in the process of downsizing/move so can relate to "no sew sentiment". Hang in there & many thanks for all you do!
