Blocks of the MonthI now have ten (!) BOMs in progress, plus my Block-a-Day project. It takes more than one day to make all my BOM blocks. I only managed three today.
First up, block 2 of "Toes in the Sand." I'm making mine with Tula Pink's Salt Water, hosted by The Quilt Asylum in McKinney, Texas. Julie Herman's "Hex and More" ruler makes these complex-looking blocks easy.
I'm on Block 11 of the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM, hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. One more block and I'll be ready to put my quilt together -- I already have the setting blocks finished! This block is "County Fair" designed by Julie Comstock of Cosmo Cricket. I used my new Bloc Loc "Flying Geese" ruler to make the geese for this block -- come back tomorrow to read my tutorial on this wonderful tool.
My oldie-but-goodie BOM is 2010's Patchwork Party. I'm almost halfway finished with blocks, five done:
Today's block is "Crazy Anna," designed by Marti Michell for Maywood Studio, kit by Shabby Fabrics.
I've managed to keep up with my Block-a-Day Chevron Quilt. Wednesday is the 50th day of Spring, and I have 50 blocks made as of today:
Random number generator chose #4 as the winner of the 100 Blocks vol. 7 magazine. The winner is "Giddy99," who commented:
The Barn Swallows block was the favorite of those who commented, so I'm glad that's the one you like also Giddy! Please email me your postal address and I'll put the magazine and the block in the mail to you ASAP!
Come back tomorrow for my tutorial on the Bloc Loc Flying Geese ruler. I promise, this is the best way yet to make perfect Flying Geese!
