One block is the extent of my sewing accomplishments this week. I’m trying not to strain myself (wink).
I’ve never participated in a block of the month (BOM) project before, but for $1, how could I go wrong? My local quilt shop, Tomorrow’s Quilts, is hosting a BOM in four colorways…I chose brights. You get the fabric for each block and a set of
destructions instructions. The block construction uses Thangles of which I have a beauteous bounty, but of course I didn’t have the size needed for this project..thank you, Mr, Murphy. There’s plenty of fabric left over to make a second block and considering my 7 1/2 inch square block came out at 7 1/4 x 7 3/8, I’d say a second block is in my immediate future.
I don’t know why I’m a quilter since I strive mightily for perfection and fall short every time!
If I ever make this in a colorway of my own creation, it’ll be batiks or really gaudy florals. Not sure why this is considered a ‘bright’ colorway, but the other options just didn’t blow my skirt up. The finishing kit (not $1, I might add) has some pretty spectacular colors in it, so there’s hope for future blocks.
I’m linking up today to Lee at Freshly Pieced. Check out what other crafty types are working on and get inspired!
Happy quilting, y’all!
