Block Rock’n Week 11 – Global Concepts

by Julie Hirt

Every other Friday I’ve been posting a free “Block Rock’n” paper piecing template.   The blocks are named after bands, singers or maybe even a song title. This week brings you Global Concepts:

I had a tough time naming this block.  Mainly because I have dozens of musicians I’d like to tribute a block with only a few blocks left to name.

Every time I hear this song I crank up the volume full blast. It makes me want to… well, like the lyrics say, f*cking dance.

Symmetry exists only in our mind
Our brain is seeing squares

Robert Delong is a young genius. He writes, sings and creates all the music.

Listen to the video and look at this.   It’s just a good fit for this block.

A bit of Photoshop play let me see what a full quilt would look like.

Global concepts aren’t common the world round
But we share a mortal frame

I love the little stars that form between the blocks. If you used a different color on the outside it will something like this:

You  can see a star in the center of each block as well a different color star that forms between the blocks.

Due to changes within 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.

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

I would love to see your block if you make one.  Feel free to:
