More, More, More BOM Blocks

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!

  1. I've never been able to pin point my style either! It seems to change from project to project, month to month! I'm happy with 'I'm a quilter...period'!! There is nothing wrong with being a block girl, but I know you are much, much more than that!!

  2. This looks so great. There really is something about blocks ... especially in a project like this, the variety from block to block makes it like starting a new project each time ... but then in the end you get this cohesive awesomeness!

  3. These blocks are so lovely. I'm a fan of blocks too but I haven't quite figured out how I like them I seem to prefer when there are many blocks of a single type so I can systematically get through them, something I have no mastered when working on multiple different blocks at once.

  4. AnneMarie, I love your use of color! All I know at this point, as a beginner, is that I'm a bright solids kind of gal.

  5. Very appealing. I have some block patterns to do in solids, and the fabric. Makes me want to get into that project.
