This is the June block in the Aurifil’s designer of the month program. This month they’re featuring Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J. Sarah has such a wide range of designs and a great color sense, so you should definitely check her out if you’re in need of a pattern!
This year, the block themes are rainbow, so Sarah chose to make a red/orange block. The fabric collection I’m using (the Bread N Butter collection by American Jane for Moda Fabrics) has such fun reds to play with, so I used quite a few in this block. Sarah’s block is below!
I used only four fabrics in my block, while Sarah used eight for a scrappy look. I really wanted to accentuate the star center and the orange frame around it.

I cant wait to see what the second half of the year brings! I got my Aurifil thread ready and am seeing rainbows!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
