Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Funky, Casual, Traditional
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to learn how to make a variety of blocks.
What are you most proud of?
That I got them all done.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure when the pattern calls for a "scant 1/4" seam" that you follow those directions. I also found a Rotating cutting board that was big enough to square-up the 12-1/2" blocks on and it made that task so much easier. It also worked good on squaring up the smaller blocks too. The Drunkards path blocks with the curved seams looked difficult but went together very easily. Those and the paper pieced blocks were the ones I thought were going to be the most difficult but were really easy. :-)
