It is that time again for the Blogger Girls’ Block of the Month. The final month of free block patterns includes month 6 blocks.
Next month we will be showing the final quilt and the layout directions.
Amazing how different these two blocks are using the same pattern. Can you spot the difference in how the templates were used?
Clue: top corner
Once you spot the difference you will also spot my mistake! I didn’t even notice it until just now! I guess it happens to all of us.
Some of the other blocks.
Be sure and stop by all the blogs for the Block of the Month.
I can’t believe it has been a month since my last post.
Boo Hiss- I will make myself stand in the corner!
I guess I have been in a funk.
Thank you to Monique because being a part of the
Blogger Girl’s Quilt Along
has made me have to hop on to my blog, hopefully ending the funk.
As you know from last month I had added some batiks.
Trying to break out of my predictable shell so I tried with several
color options for block 5. Disregard the digital lines.
Month 5 is my favorite block
You all know that I love polka dots so I couldn’t help but throw in this brown and green polka dot from Paint Box by Laundry Basket. I love how strong and graphic 2 fabrics make this block.
I wanted to see what this block would look like as a positive/negative colorway. I did change the center block out so the block is now 4 sawtooth stars.
Changing 1 fabric color completely changes the block.
I think my favorite of the 3 blocks. A scrappy block made
with a combination of prints and batiks.
Stop by and see the color options at the other blogger girls.
Each of us will be making the same block each month. We are all using different fabrics so this will really give you lots of color choices. There will be 6 blocks posted and you can make the
6 block quilt or make 2 of each block and make the 12 block quilt. There will also be a set of instructions with the finishing options to make either size quilt.
The instructions will be on Monique’s blog until July 2013.
As soon as you have packed away all the Christmas goodies, get ready, pick your favorite signature fabric for borders and stay tuned for yardages posted soon.
