Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Traditional, Classic
What was your inspiration?
Amy Gibson's BOM Court 2012.
What are you most proud of?
I was surprised to find how easy this was (although mine's got a bit of a corner on it in one place - still practice makes perfect and this WAS my first attempt!). I was a little concerned about the thickness of the finished block and, before I appliqued the disc onto the background I toyed with the idea of cutting out the back of the disc to make it thinner. However, I didn't have the courage to do it, as Amy didn't suggest it, so it's still quite thick.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Choose your colours and patterns carefully. Do look at what other people have posted on the site, as many of them have had excellent and innovative ideas and have made this block look quite spectacular.
