We've got a block, some beautiful color studies, and a giveaway.  So let me get to it. 

BH3 Robin Pickens Corner Garden

This is Corner Garden by Robin Pickens - Block Heads 3 Block 25.  The instructions can be found here -  Robin Pickens Blog.

Robin's block can be made in four sizes - 4", 6", 8" and 12" finished.  (All block images are by Robin Pickens.)

Have you seen the Color Study's that Robin has been sharing on social media?

BH3 Robin Pickens Block 23 Color Study

These are Robin's color ideas for Vanessa Goertzen's Block 23 - Lucky Penny.

BH3 Robin Pickens Block 22 Color Study

Hen & Chicks - Laurie Simpson's Block 22.  Simply mixing up the colors and value placement completely changes the look of the block.

BH3 Robin Pickens Block 17 Color Study

Block 17 - Crossroads by Betsy Chutchian.  Any one of these would make a spectacular quilt - especially using Robin's Thatched collection.

BH3 Robin Pickens Block 15 Color Study

Wouldn't a quilt made with these blocks be gorgeous?  This is Block 15 by Corey Yoder - Starry Eyed.
