Some of my points didn't quite line up, but I pieced these together with my walking foot and even using that I had a little trouble climbing over the bulky seams. The seams aren't unmanageable, just not enjoyable enough to want to give it a second try :)
Here are my blocks from January to the present. I didn't make the practice block; depending on what I decide on for the final layout, I may go back and make it in the end.
I can't remember if I've mentioned this before, but my inspiration for the colors in the blocks comes from the colors in Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy line andI have used one FMF print in each block. I did end up adding the darker blue color just because I felt like it.
I also put together a couple gemstone blocks as requested by Lynn for do. Good Stitches. These were quick and fun and I love that she requested that the colors be scrappy and rainbow-y.
Can you believe it is August already? I feel like I say that every month, but wow this year is flying by!
This is the first time I have participated in a block of the month and I have really loved it. Have you ever participated in one? Are there other good ones out there? I would love to do another next year.
