A Seam Ripper Weekend
Sorry about the poor quality photos but it's been nothing but clouds in the Sunshine State for the past several days. I spent the weekend finishing up on some block-of-the-month programs I joined this year. This is the last block in the Sugar Block Club with Amy Gibson. All year I've been waiting for the right block to fussy cut a flower and December was the month.
Here are all twelve of the blocks. I haven't decided how I'm going to set them yet, I might just make a few more blocks. The fabric was a line I found at Joann's in their better fabrics back in 2005 that I'd been saving for just the right project. I love how all the blocks turned out!
I joined Block Lotto last month and made four blocks for December.
Then it was on to this block. It's the December block for the Designer-of-the-Month on the Auribuzz site. That red Grunge fabric is much prettier in natural light! I used the no-waste method for the flying geese and must have done something wrong as once they were sewn together they were a good quarter of an inch too long. Ugh. Ripped things apart, resewed, and eventually decided to just re-make the block after never getting it quite right. I'm satisfied with it finally!
Here's all the blocks for the year. I made all of them from my scraps which pleases me greatly!
Thanks for stopping by!
