This here post should have been done back in March. Only, I didn’t get around to making the blocks until a few days ago… I guess I’ve been busy or something? Who knows… Anyway, they late but they done. Yip yip.
Out of all the blocks in the free Craftsy BOM (Block of The Month) Course, these March foundation-pieced blocks are my favourite so far. I think it’s because there’s an element of magic and surprise to them. You never quite know how they’ll turn out until the very end. And the result is just so fun. I can imagine whole scrappy quilts done in both these blocks.
My only two issues were: 1) lining up the Broken Spider Web Block in the end. I will have to unpick my final seam and give it a second go ’round, darn thing. And I’m not fond of unpicking. No sir. And 2) the Broken Spider Web makes A LOT of waste. I’m wondering if there’s another (and equally simple) way of doing it? Take cover, I may have to put on my thinking cap for that one…
But, yay, I made a start on April’s offerings which involve English paper-pieced hexagons. When I first saw that we were doing hexagons, I sighed heavily… I was under the impression that I’d find them tedious and difficult. But oh Boysie, was I wrong! In fact, I may well have found a new love… The little hexies are so cute and they’re actually quite simple to make and put together. Not to mention that they are perfect for using scraps. I mean really, you silly Michele, what’s NOT to like?
I’ll post the April blocks soon I hope. Wish me well…
Oh and FIY, my completed January and February blocks are here and here, respectively. And FIY2, Catherine made a stunning string block quilt HERE and Mona completed a broken spider web quilt HERE. Aren’t they beauties?
Have a lovely lovely day!
