This block made by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts is up for giveaway today.

Today’s giveaway block was made by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts. I like the yellow light in the windows, inviting friends and family inside. Julie is busy planning a wedding—so maybe this is the house where she’ll make a new home!

You may be familiar with Julie’s versatile Hex N More ruler, or with the unique patterns she’s designed for its use.

The Hex N More is used to cut four shapes in four sizes each.
