Virtual Quilting Bee Block #12

Today we have the tutorial for Block #12 of the Virtual Quilting Bee. This tutorial is by Katie Blakesley of the blog Swim Bike Quilt.

If you're new to the Virtual Quilting Bee click here for all the details as well as links to block tutorials, fabric requirements, and introduction to quilting tutorials. 

Blocks 1-11
I always love checking out the the other blocks in the VQB Flickr Group. Here's another variation on the monochromatic theme by Craftyfesta1. Aren't they great?
And finally, if you're looking for a great cause, when you are visiting Katie for today's tutorial, be sure to check out the 100 Quilts for Kids charity drive. I love Katie's commitment to charitable sewing and to motivating the rest of us to do the same. This campaign is all about making and donating a quilt for children in your local community. And when you do so, you can share your contribution on Katie's blog and be eligible to win an amazing prize. That's about as win-win as it gets!!
