Block of the Week is a project growing out of BlockFab iPhone/Touch/iPad quilting app that my sister, Mary Kay Podlecki, has created. (This is her 3rd app--all free; also check out her "QuiltFab" and "QuiltRef" apps.) This third app lets you choose blocks and colorways, put them into a quilt--then page through different orientations, try different colorways and then take a snapshot of the quilts you like to e-mail to yourself. It will also give you fabric requirements and instructions for the blocks. (I may be a bit biased, but I think it would be worth it to buy an iPod Touch, if I didn't already own one, just to get the apps!)

With BOW we're going to go through each of the blocks, show photos of completed blocks, give instructions, perhaps some history of the block. We'd love to hear your comments, suggestions for colorways, whatever. And we'll give you a hint or two about using the features in BlockFab.

Please join us!
