“BRILLIANT IDEA” – A FREE 6 INCH QUILT BLOCK PATTERN

I’m so excited to share my quilt block for the Shine Together Quilt Sew Along from Riley Blake Designs: Brilliant Idea. My contribution to the Hush Hush 3 low volume fabric collection was a sweet toss of lightbulbs with a heart in the center. I like to think of the lightbulb and heart combination as a symbol for creative inspiration and decided the same imagery would make an adorable quilt block!

“Brilliant Idea” was designed as a 6″ block so you can use it as the center of a small sawtooth star block in the “Shine Together” quilt. Each of the designers is offering a free block – get more details about the free sew along here. You can of course use the quilt block however you’d like – use it in a mug rug, table runner, quilt project, etc.
