I have been watching this flashing "I'm doing the block of the month" button for about 2 months on my blog. I guess since it's almost the end of February, I should get started.
Craftsy Block of the Month FREE class online. Craftsy is a great website for all you crafters out there. They have great classes and you can share your projects with lots of other passionate, crafty people.
I spent the afternoon yesterday completing the two January blocks.
These are the fabrics I am going to begin with. I've had them staring at me from my stash for about 2 years. I guess they will be a good start and I will have to find some more to match. The instructions say I will need 36 fat quarters and this is only 8....looks like I will need to go shopping...
Darn, a trip to the fabric store.
My background fabric is actually an ivory kona cotton (kinda hard to tell from the pic, sorry)
One of the things I love about quilting is the transformation the fabrics take as they are sliced and diced, stitched and pieced together. The beginning never looks like the end!
Don't you just love slicing up your carefully sewn squares? Scary at first, but it's all part of the transformation!
The second block is called a Wonky Pound Sign.
Another opportunity to slice up those beautifully sewn seams! This block was fun because you get to dice it up however you want...no rules!
I am so glad I decided to get started on this project! I have been missing quilting.
And now that you know "no time" is not a valid excuse, I guess I better get rolling on February's blocks since March is already posted on their website. Where does the time go?
It's never to late to get started on this project with me! Show me your fabric pics and blocks, I would love to see them!
