A Time For All Seasons June Block Of The Month

It's my turn to share blocks for the "A Time For All Seasons" block of the month and I had so much 
fun creating them. I hope you'll enjoy them, too! Each block is unfinished at 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" and 
will be free for one month. After that, they will be available in my Etsy store HERE for a small fee.

Father's Day
June means celebrating Father's Day and what dad hasn't received at least one tie 
on his special day. This poor dad received way more than his share of ties!



Summer Solstice 2019 
"The first day of summer 2019 arrives with the solstice on Friday, June 21st at 11:54 a.m. EDT. 
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the longest day of the year and the 
moment when the Sun reaches the Tropic of Cancer, its highest point."

Sailing away during the summer solstice sounds like a sweet idea to me!


June Weddings
"June was traditionally the most popular month to marry, and still very common. Why? The goddess 
Juno (for whom June is named) was the protector of women in all aspects of life, but especially in 
marriage and childbearing, so a wedding in Juno’s month was considered most auspicious."

Bonus Block - June Bride and Groom



Here's the optional finished quilt information:

62” x 74” quilt top 
5 rows across, 6 rows down
30 blocks (6 bonus blocks)
 2” sashings
 4 yards background fabric (allows for extra if needed)
2 ½ yards sashing fabric
Miscellaneous fabrics of your choice for appliques, etc. 
(A fat quarter bundle works great for this)

Those are all wonderful blocks and love sailboat pieces. I want to do something with a large one, coming up the quilt.

Hi Carol! Oh that summer solstice block is so darn pretty. All of the blocks are fun and have a little whimsy to them. It's a great project, and like you said it's never too late to start. ~smile~ Roseanne

Thank you for three fabulous blocks! The dad one made me really LOL. =) You outdid yourself, as each one would have been a great block all by itself.

This morning I am unable to access your sweet patterns. Disappointing, but google says they are not available.
