It’s that time again. Wow, first Saturdays of the month roll around so quickly. It’s Block of the Month Challenge day.
Can I admit out loud that sewing on this is not my favorite? I think some of you are in the same boat as me….we want the quilt finished but don’t necessarily want to be the one that sews it. This month, my block was a “do-zee”.
I had to make one 12″ and one 18″ block but being I’m sewing Kelli’s too, I had to make two of each. Here’s the block…
pretty innocent looking right…WRONG!
Look at this. Who designs a block like this. That center is inset and this is the piece I need to inset it with. See the crazy point on the right??? WHAT??? UGH.
So to pacify myself I sewed on some of my little churn dash blocks as leaders and enders…okay I admit it, the BOM was actually the leader and ender. Sometimes a girl has to do what they have to do to get the job done and I liked my churn dash blocks WAY better than the BOM.
I finished the two 12″ blocks. Not perfect but I don’t care to stress myself over perfection. Done is good enough. The blocks doesn’t lay perfectly but I’ll fix that when I machine quilt it. I’ll run the quilting machine over that very spot with the little pucker in the center and it won’t be recognizable.
I went on and finished the 18″ blocks…here’s the photo to prove it. (the lighting is goofy. Sorry.)
It’s really not terrible sewing on this. I’m just in a mood. I will be so glad to have this quilt done though. One month at time I can handle this. See you back here on April 7th. I’m thinking about tackling the big center medallion. I know I’m going to get busy as the weather gets nicer and it would be nice to have that bigger harder part finished.
