Craftsy Block of the Month

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:    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?
