I made 5 blocks at retreat in January
And another 5 blocks during the first week of February
The BOM group voted at February's session. They were very thoughtful in their choices, and so that's what we're gonna sew up.
|Wanna play along & learn these blocks?|
I had my reasons for making up different block samples, mostly having to do with techniques to teach. (Oh, and a couple of them were just plain cute.) What I didn't take into consideration so much was how the 12 blocks were going to play together in a single quilt/project. I think this is what I was missing--my gals helped me to focus on the whole, not just the cute individual bits.
Techniques still to learn: piecing along diagonal rows; no-waste flying geese; quarter-square triangle; and more uses of folded corners.
I'm excited for the rest of this year!
