Teepee Quilt Block Tutorial

This is such a fun block….great for using your funky and fun fabric.  Mix them up.  Don’t worry about color matching or style or design.  Anything goes with this.

Pull out your crazy fabric.  Yeah the ones you have been collecting because they were weird and fun, but had no place to go.  Like the fire fabric.  Conversations prints, spaceships, dinosaurs, paint splashes, pirate, vintage.  You name it.
