Craftsy Block of the Month 2



February's blocks of the month from Craftsy.  2013 on the left, 2012 on the right.

I did modify the 2013 block this month, making it slighty larger (9.5 vs 8.5)  so that it would fit in with my other blocks.  I've only made one so far because its not really my favorite of blocks.  I might make more at the end of the year if I need to fill in spaces though.  The partial seam construction was interesting to learn, but the method shown is not really conducive to using up scraps!

I'm not terribly fond of the 2012 block, we will see if it makes it into the final quilt.  I dont really know yet what feels off about it, maybe its just the colors are duller than what I'm going for in this thing?

who knows.

But I do know that I am having a blast doing these blocks and learning new techniques!

Stay tuned for next month - String blocks and more triangles!
