My Burst Block Template makes construction simple, and there are so many cool ways to put these blocks together, I can’t help but rebuild this quilt every once in awhile. This week’s Gator Quilt is my newest Burst Block creation, and with this fun, twisty layout, you don’t have to worry about lining up seams!

Is your sewing studio being taken over by UFOs? (I’m talking unfinished projects, not extraterrestrials.) Quilters love to start new quilts. Finishing a quilt, however, is another story. We race through quilt top after quilt top, excited to try out new patterns and fabric combos, but when it comes time to sandwich that baby and get it quilted and bound, some of us run out of steam, and that quilt top gets tossed on the stack of “waiting to be finished” projects.
