Block Rock’n Week 3 – Lithium

by Julie Hirt

Welcome to week three!  Every Friday for  12 weeks I’m posting a free foundation (paper pieced) quilt block template.   This weeks block is called Lithium.


The hardest part about this block was naming it. My high school years ranged from 1991-95.  Of course I’m a huge Nirvana fan.   I’m wearing my flannel and Doc Martens as I type.  Kurt Cobain was such a total stud to me back then.  Dozens of songs ran through my head and I finally settled on Lithium.

I’m going to share this with you even though I’d rather not.


HA!! Total screw up.  I didn’t even realize it until it was all sewn together.  Yeah, the first picture has a little photoshop love.  I’ll redo this block one day, until then just refer to other image.


Due to changes within a Craftsy, I am moving the patterns to Etsy. 
Buy the entire series of 12 blocks for $5 or each block for $1.  

Download HERE

Feel free to share within sewing groups if you use this pattern as your Bee block!
It does NOT need to be purchased multiple times. Same with the series purchase.


If you make this block, please share!

Have a blog? Grab a button and share the fun – this is a free series! Code is here.



I posted this on Facebook earlier this year on Kurt Cobain’s birthday and I still feel this way:

Glad my angst ridden, emotional teen years were filled with plenty of Nirvava.  My heart will be forever grunge.

Have a great weekend!
