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. The blocks will all be 8". I'll link the different blocks and their tutorials here. ­čí╗

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.
