Adobe House May Quilt Block Mania

Time to go on a trip to the desert! Let's spend the days trekking through sand and cactus, then relaxing at night in a quaint Adobe House.

Yes, 'desert' is the Quilt Block Mania theme this month. And when I think of 'desert', what comes to mind is either the Sahara or, for some crazy reason, the state of New Mexico.

Given that the Sahara is rather sparse for quilt block ideas, the group leaned toward desert vegetation of the US Southwest. And WOW! What a great variety of desert blocks!

For the month of May, visit each designer to download their free desert block. And don't forget to say thank you for their creativity!
