Craftsy – Block of the Month – October

FREE Block of the Month

I know it’s not October YET, but Craftsy released the October BOM early. I didn’t think I was going to do it this weekend, but today just started out that I needed something like this to do, so I did one of the blocks.

This month the technique is Paper Piecing and these blocks appear to be more time consuming that the curved blocks last month.

I did complete one this weekend, the Friendship Circle – there is one section is off just enough to throw the inner circle off but everything else aligned up so well, I just couldn’t pull it apart and start over. Of course it didn’t show up until the last seem on the block.

I do have one suggestion, that I will follow when I do the second block for October, when sewing the pieces onto the paper – sew out to the edge or past it – it will make a big different when pulling off the paper. When I was pulling the paper off the backs because the directions said to sew only on the lines, some of my pieces started to pull apart. Go the distance, it will also give you a start on the tearing – paper is a tough cookie at times!
