Did you know that every issue of The Quilt Life magazine has a link to a FREE block pattern? The Star of the Sea quilt block pattern is just one example of the patterns that are featured. One of the favorite columns in The Quilt Life is the Cook Off between Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims where each of them publishes their favorite recipe. Every issue contains a bonus Cook Off block, too. You can download the Star of the Sea block and many more pretty blocks.
