It's starting to become pretty apparent that I'm a block girl. If I can see it, you all must clearly see it, right? Sometimes it's so much easier to see things in others rather than yourself. In other families, I can always easily pick out which kids look like the mom, and which kids look like the dad. But in my own family, goodness..... it's hard to see if any of my boys look like me?
Same can be said for my quilting style I guess. My mom would make comments about certain things being my style. Really, I thought? I don't even know what my quilting style is. Do I have a style? I just try to do what I like.
Well, somewhere in there, my quilting "style" has come and bashed me over the head. I'm a block girl. Tried and true.
These blocks I have made over the past few months for the Block of the Month class I am teaching. I finished up the sample blocks and assembled them in the Sisters' Ten BOM layout. Looooove the blue background. The solids are a mix and match of solids, peppered cottons and yarn dyes they had at the shop. To be honest, it was a tough mix. When piecing small 9" blocks, I much prefer to work with all the same fabrics. The variance in weight and texture of the fabric mix made accurate piecing more difficult.
Of course, I needed to get a shot before I took the quilt into the shop and it was an extremely windy day. That seems to be the whole month of April in Ohio this year. Props to my boys who gave the shoot a valiant effort. Darn wind!
If anyone is local to Columbus, Ohio, the class is drop-in month-to-month. We're still making blocks, so you can join us if you like!Pin It
