Chatelaine- Free BOW Sampler Quilt Block 67

This week I have a sweet and super easy block for you, the lovely Susannah. This block represents the minstrel song by Stephen Foster, "Oh! Susannah" which was first published in America in 1848.
The song contained fun, nonsense lyrics, set to a polka style beat. It has been adapted many times, removing the original racist connotations, and is one of America's best known songs.
I chose some gorgeous florals and stripes for my block but its such a versatile pattern, so you will be able to showcase any of your favorite fabrics. The construction is quick and easy, so there's nothing tricky to look out for on this one. Just have fun with it :)

Happy sewing :)
