Craftsy BOM

 I'm in a FaceBook Quilting Group and the members are so great. Someone is always looking on the net for new projects. This is one of them. It's a Block of the Month quilt, and each month two blocks are made. By Christmas I should have a lovely quilt.

I love seeing what everyone else is doing.
I started while away on holidays, and I am using many of the colours I used for both the Orca Quilt and the Chips and Strips Quilt :-). I like these colours.

I did HAVE to go :-) to the local quilt shop to purchase some more fat quarters.

Here I am all set up. I have the Craftsy BOM instructions on my ipad. Beautiful day in Forster. 

Block One - slashed block

Slashed Block Number Two

Here they are pegged up on the awning of the van.

Now to February Blocks Three and Four - using half square triangles.

Now I'm home I can go to my stash to get extra fabric - this is what I can up with.

Block 3
The Balkan Puzzle Block

I tried the layout two ways and decided on the dark in the centre.

Block 4
Chunky Chevron Block

So here are the 4 blocks so far

I think tonight I will get out some Christmas material and make some more blocks :-)

Happy Quilting
