My Etsy Baby Boomer Team buddy, Patty Harrington, shared a link to Crafty's Block of the Month (BOM), taught by the talented Amy Gibson: http://www.craftsy.com/class/The-Craftsy-Block-of-the-Month/50. It's FREE, and Amy has created excellent online video tutorials to coach us through the process of making two 12.5" x 12.5" blocks each month. I couldn't resist. I'm in!
The two January blocks are an Asterisk block and a Wonky Pound Sign block. Both are sew and slash blocks. I've decided to use fabrics from my stash.
My focus fabric will be Persimmon by Kaffe Fassett for Rowan-Westminster Fibers, shown above. I will shop my stash for coordinating pink, peach, tangerine, mint green, aqua, turquoise, tan and gray fabrics as I complete the blocks. I'll use the focus fabric for the Asterisk block and a Michael Miller turquoise pin dot for the Wonky Pound Sign block. My background fabric will be a snow white Kona cotton.
I'll keep you all posted on my progress. Are you involved in a quilt-a-long, BOM, or other group challenge?
