Wild Goose Chase Quilt Block Pattern from Piece N Quilt!

Hey there! I’m excited today to be sharing this fun quilt/block here on Seams & Scissors. I’ve always been a fan so it’s a big honor to share my design here.
Before I get started, I’m Natalia Bonner, I blog over at Piece N Quilt. I’m a mom, wife and crazy quilter. I am the author of Beginner’s Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, Modern One Block Quilts & Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts. Early this year I got a crazy idea create 30 quilt block tutorials in 30 days. I had so much fun with that, that in April I created round two, this time I called it 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks- Star Version


In each of those series I created tutorials for 12″ blocks, they seem to be the most popular. But, today I thought it would be fun to share cutting instructions for 9″, 12″ and 72″. I hope that you’ll find one of these inspiring!
