|Month #1 - Puzzle Star|
I love this block. It is composed of nine churn dash like blocks. It was very easy to put together and the pattern included with the fabric was easy to follow. In the middle of this 16" (finished) block is a star depicted in green.
|Month #1 - Caroline Lily Variation|
This block is also 16" square. If you hadn't notice the name of this quilt is the Yuletide BOM. It is a Christmas quilt thus the red and green blocks. This block is still incomplete because Joanna will send in a future mailing another shade of green to make the leaves. This was another easy set of four blocks to sew.
|Month #2 - Flying Geese Criss Cross|
The next two blocks were received in May. I am finally finishing them in July! This block is also 16" square. This was another easy one because of the size of the pieces of fabric. It went very fast and besides I LOVE making star blocks. BTW, this quilt is a mystery quilt which means Joanna will give us instructions and/or suggestions at the end of the year on where to place the blocks for a pleasing quilt.
|Month #2 - Feather Star|
This block was by far the most difficult of the four blocks. The small triangles and placement were tedious. In the instructions Joanna wrote: "Sew SLOWLY & CAREFULLY." At first, I did not follow her instructions and had to rip out the seam so many times (I lost count) that I was leaving some places where the triangles meet close to threadbare! I like the look of it so I guess it was worth it.
So I am on to June and July's blocks.
Happy Sewing Everyone!
