February’s BOM

Last month I decided to start the Block of the Month with Pat Sloan, a mystery quilting adventure! Each month we get a new block to make, learning new techniques (if you’re a newbie to quilting like me!) and by the end of the year I’ll have a new quilt!

February BOM

This month is racing along so I decided it was about time I made February’s block. Last night was Friday Night Sew In, a linky party organised by Wendy over on  Sugarlane Designs, so I got myself organised and cut out and pieced the block.

Less than perfect points!This month’s block is called ‘Toes in the sand’, it uses flying geese block again, so in theory I should be improving, well…one side came out well, the other side not quite so well! I seemed to make more mistakes too, I sewed one set of half triangles only to find that one side was upside down! It then took three attempts to cut replacement squares that were accurate enough!!! My triangles aren’t all perfectly lined up and my points aren’t perfect…but I’m using this as a learning exercise so I’m cool with that.

It’s great seeing what everyone else has made too, the colour and fabric choices look so different, some really have the wow factor, look at the others here. Here’s my two completed blocks together.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    We all take or unsew is so much more nicer then seem rip, but it does not matter how long you have been sewing, there are just those days that you should just walk away and do some thing else. God bless, you are doing wonderful, keep up the good work.

    How frustrating. When something starts to go wrong it just seems to compound. Lovely result and such pretty fabrics.
