Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
InstructionsContinually trim your block. My block has between 5 and 7 sides depending on the row. For some reason, I found it easier when I was using the smaller bits of leftover fabric than when I had to cut longer strips of fabric.
Type of item: Home Decor
Leftover bits acquired through my Quilting Guild supplemented by some fabrics purchased for my Quilting Guild group project. Some of the bits of fabric are not 100% cotton.
What was your inspiration?
I knew that I did not want to include this block in my burgundy/off-white quilt. So, I decided to make this block the centre block of a Guild Challenge quilt . Our pattern dictated the colours per row, the number of squares per row, as well as the size of the block (finished 10 in.). So, this BOM block will be the centre block as it is totally opposite from all the other blocks which are so orderly. However, I did respect the colour scheme.
I included one of my blocks from the Guild Challenge as a reference.
What are you most proud of?
Finishing the block! I found it very difficult to get away from straight lines and from "order". This block is a little too chaotic for me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Give it a try but find the right project to use it!
