Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Traditional, Casual
Leftover cotton fabric from previous projects, mainly Fabric Freedom's "Pure Velvet".
What was your inspiration?
Amy's Block of the Month course. (of course!).
What are you most proud of?
Getting started with my January blocks in October, even though I was ten months behind! I managed to make the first ten blocks (January to May) in a week (which rather shows on some of the points - they were "flung" together!), and am now facing the other ten to try and catch up with everyone else. A bit worried though - the October ones look a bit scary! However, I'm sure Amy will show me precisely what to do and make it all a "doddle"! I used three different prints in this block as I wanted it to be a little more interesting. I'm now toying with the idea of putting something into the middle to make it a bit more individual - a Suffolk Puff (YoYo) perhaps? If I do, I'll post a picture.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Never mind if you haven't even started when everyone else has just about finished - these blocks don't take long, and they're great fun. We're learning so much!
