Craftsy Block of the Month 2012

Project Description

What are you most proud of? the backs of my blocks are almost as tidy as the fronts and, so far, my blocks are very close to 12-1/2" square. What advice would you give someone starting this project? two big plus-sides here: 1. this is a freebie, and 2. the varieties of blocks and techniques have already given me new skills.

What you will need

  • The slashed blocks have a very modern feel
  • but I'm just using fabrics from my stash
  • which are a little more traditional - a muted green
  • gold and grey floral for my background and other grey
  • gold and green fabrics that read more like solids.

Q&A with DonnaCND

NanaJeanFL asked:
Love your fabric choice - the perfect compliment. Are you using your stash, a bundle, or yardage?
DonnaCND answered:
all from stash - how cool is that?! the floral background and the dark grey were even both on clearance when i bought them.
NanaJeanFL asked:
Hi Donna- Just had to come back and see that gorgeous Asterisk and discovered your other blocks! They're beurtiful. I hope you've been posting them individually on the site - otherwise members might not see them. They're too pretty to miss.
DonnaCND answered:
what do you recommend as the best way to post? i.was trying to do each month's blocks in one project album.
