Cotton fabrics and thread
What was your inspiration?
The fabrics in a FQ bundle & Crafty's 2013 BOM. Many many thanks to all who helped me decide about the stripes in the middle.
What are you most proud of?
Only had to trim slivers from all blocks.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you're using Fat Quarters you need cut only two (2) strips per FQ. Use the long side (22") which yields six (6) of the 3 1/2" strip segments. Each month figure out how much fabric you need before cutting. In January I double cut for a full WOF strip. I didn't need to for the centers and ended up with two extra strips of the stripe. I decided to use that in the center of this block.
