It seems like it has taken me forever but I have finally gotten to my new block of the month quilt. It is based on Pat Speth's (of Nickel Quilts fame) new Color Me Happy, Block of the Month. The fabric willl be the Fossil Fern Charm Squares from Benartex. See what you think of blocks 1 & 2. But first, you must remember that I am NO photographer, but you get the idea.
I have a lot of Pat Speth's books but have never tried her method until now. I must say she has it figured out very well. Especially when I use my new Bloc-Loc ruler (yes, you can buy them here in the shop) for trimming down the half-square triangles. What a breeze!
Come back soon and see the next block(s). Have a fun day! Jo

Yeah! I finally got to do some sewing again. This time I was making a very simple block using (36) 3" squares. Since the fabric is directional I did have to pay some attention to the way I sewed the squares together.
Now that I have the center done, I need to set it aside and get back to my quilting.
