Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Whimsical, Cute, Mod, Traditional
What was your inspiration?
I used a photo editing program (Picasa) to create a collage with all of my completed blocks. I am still not sure of the final arrangement, but it is fun to shuffle them around, virtually, and see the effect. I have never quilted anything... so I am looking forward to learning free-motion quilting... I signed up for Leah Day's class, and intend to follow her instructions for quilting each block of my sampler with a different design. Since I am just learning the techniques, I plan to use the "Quilt as you go" option, quilting each block individually before they are assembled together into the final quilt. Some of these blocks are pieced differently than Amy showed us, so I will have to be creative with the free motion techniques, also... Lol.... this will surely take a while to complete, but I am excited to continue learning! Thank you Craftsy for the wonderful classes!
What are you most proud of?
I am proud to have been a part of Craftsy's very first Block of the Month class! I am proud that I FINISHED EVERY BLOCK! (ok, well, I changed a couple... but I did the whole year of blocks!) This has been a wonderful learning experience. Thank you, Amy Gibson, and Craftsy. Especially --- Thank you to my fellow BOM'ers!! Loved all the supportive comments, and seeing your amazing blocks! Thanks for sharing!!! <3<3 <3
