So, somehow it’s June already.
That means school’s out for both kids, my mother-in-law has come for her visit, and the new Sugar Block Club pattern has arrived. Not necessarily in that order. I wanted to dive right into the June block, but those other June things kept me busy. Not to mention that baby quilt that needs to be done by the shower on Saturday morning. (It’s halfway basted! Go me! And check back for finished project pictures later this week…)
But I did have some time to do some sewing on Monday- and I got one of my two June blocks done. Hooray! Halfway there, and actually on schedule, to boot.
I’m now at the point where I’m using fabrics that are in other blocks- all of these have in fact been in other months.
The block was simple to piece. Careful pressing, as spelled out in the pattern, was the trick.
I almost put the blocks together incorrectly, and at the last moment, I realized what I was doing, and saved myself some time spent with my seam ripper… (I almost attached the flowers to the center block, instead of putting them on the outer edge.)
I really like the way the flowers look in this block. Again, that teal Kaffe Fassett aboriginal dot reads solid, but I love the color so much I’ll forgive it.
I’m happy with the way these 6 blocks are coming together so far.
In all my years of quilting, I’ve never actually done a BoM before! I’m enjoying tackling a project a little bit at a time, taking time to step back and consider my choices. Have you done any BoM type projects? I might be getting a little bit hooked!
