January Quilt Project #1

For January I started 2 “projects”. FREE Block of the Month

One is a the free online class from Craftsy –  Learn it. Make it.
Craftsy Block of the Month Class

Each month they release 2 blocks. Each block is different and you learn a new technique.

  • January was 2 Slashed Blocks: Asterisk Block & Wonky Pound Sign
  • February was 2 Half-Square Triangles: Chunky Chevron Block & Balkan Puzzle Block
  • March was 2 Foundation Piecing: String Block & Broken Spider Web Block
  • April was 2 patterns using Hex shapes: Hexi Stripe Block & Sunny with a chance of Hex Block Pattern (I didn’t care for the second block, it didn’t go with my fabric, so I skipped it)
  • May was 2 twists on Log Cabin: Modern Log Cabin & Wonky 5-Sided Log Cabin (again, I didn’t care for the second block, so I skipped it)
  • June is 2 9 patch blocks: Greek Cross & Octagon Blocks
  • July is 2 Dresden blocks: Traditional Dresden Plate & Modern Dresden Wheel

It is a wonderful class and I am learning a lot of basic steps and different approaches at making simple blocks.
