Craftsy BOM

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I've joined a quilt challenge which, for January, requires that only solid fabrics in warm colors are to be used. I was able to combine that challenge with this course and the fabrics all came out of my own quilt stash. See photo titled January BOM and Challenge. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try it! It's fun and interesting and very satisfying at the end! The quilt instructor did an excellent job of presenting the techniques required to successfully accomplish January's Block of the Month. The written course instructions are very well done and were right by my side as I cut and sewed the two blocks. Thank heavens for the internet because I found the instructions for cathedral windows at and followed instructions for A Modern Approach. The cathedral windows were all constructed on the sewing machine.

What you will need

  • Fabrics from my stash.

Fun project and so easy to follow. Very excited to do the next 2 for February. Decided to make the grandchildren one so I am doing extra blocks each month to make 4 lapquilts. So glad I checked out this McCall's email.

Best of luck!
