I had a very long, narrow block shape that I thought lent itself to some interesting partial-block designs. In fact, once I started working on this block, I started thinking of it almost as if you're looking at the night sky through a narrow skylight! That's why I'm calling this block "A Piece of Sky." Some of those half-square triangles are on the small side, both other than that, this block is really quite easy to make. Head over to the Free Spirit blog for the full tutorial.
And on top of all this blocky goodness, I also get to giveaway a charm pack of Free Spirit's Designer Essentials prints. Just to give you an idea of what you can do with a charm pack like this, Faith made this beautiful quilt for Spring Quilt Market entirely from Free Spirit Designer Essentials:
