Today I’m going to show you my progress on the Craftsy Block of the Month. I have 10 of the 10 months done which means YES – they are all done! I’ve really enjoyed this Block of the Month series. Each month a new technique has been introduced. I’ve tried things I’ve never tried before. Realized I enjoyed doing things I never thought I would (hexagons) and was really glad I only had to make two blocks with a certain method (curved piecing). Regardless of it all – in the end I’m going to have a gorgeous, unique sampler quilt that taught me a lot about quilting. Here are the final two blocks. The last month focused on paper piecing.
This was the first block we had to paper piece. You can see that I had some difficulties with this one. I just wasn’t as precise as I should have been – I’m guessing more starch would have helped. I seem to always be extra challenged trying to sew wedges together…To me, this was actually an easier block to paper piece than the first one. Things just seemed to go together more smoothly. I surprise even myself that I don’t mind paper piecing at all. Here are all twenty of the Craftsy Block of the Month Blocks in the order I made them (from left to right). You can see all the fun we had working on this! I’m also loving the red/turquoise/grey color scheme. I had to play around with the layout a little bit and the blocks will get mixed up. I have to decide what I want to do for sashing. I’m sort of thinking some sort of funky piecing thing using the techniques I learned throughout the 10 months to bring the whole thing together. So much fun!
Do the fabrics on these tree ornaments look familiar? I love finding cool ways to use up random scraps!
So – what do you think? Feel free to share with me your Craftsy Block of the Month blocks too! I would love to see what you came up with!
