Palm Leaf for August Quilt Block Mania

How about we spend some time in the jungle this month?

Yes, that's the theme for the August Quilt Block Mania free block, and I've designed a Palm Leaf to set everyone in the mood! Can't you just image walking through the jungle and being tapped on the shoulder by these huge palm leaves? Of course, there's a ton of other things that may visit you - let's see what the other designers came up with.

Here's the color palette we worked from, if you would like to add supporting blocks that would coordinate with those from the designers. Nice selection, huh?

And here's the list of links for collecting those blocks this month. Be sure to thank the designers for providing blocks for a fun themed jungle quilt!

As has been my designing style lately, my Palm Leaf block features easy fusible applique, perfect for the confident beginner quilter. The curves are big, so cutting and stitching are pretty easy!

A fat quarter is needed for the background, plus two greens in the same size or scraps. And don't forget the fusible web! Full-sized reversed templates plus placement guides are included in the pattern to make this finished 12" block.
