2013 BOM May blocks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I figured out how to get the blocks to be 7 1/2" square. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be really, really careful when trying to figure out how to trim the block to the final size. It's frustrating to make a new block because I cut one side at 3 1/2" instread of 3 3/4".

What you will need

Q&A with Darns

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Very clever blocks! I love the way you talk to yourself. Makes me feel less alone. :)
Darns answered:
Sometimes talking to myself (along with wine & chocolate) helps me try something new!
NanaJeanFL asked:
Awe gee Darns :D "Just happened"? Not on your life. You're a very creative lady and I love seeing what you come up with!! These are fantastic. I can see a whole quilt using them.
Darns answered:
Thanks, Jean! Did you check out the website for these rulers? She has all kinds of great quilt patterns using the curved ruler. I want to do the quilt along blocks - they are traditional blocks with a curve! asked:
I like them. ! Nice colors too !
Darns answered:
Thank you!
Siodach asked:
Much more interesting than straight spools :-)
Darns answered:
That's what I thought! How fortunate that I found the website with the curved ruler just in time for this month's block.
