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!
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.
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.
