A post from Kelli–
So we’ve had the block of the month quilt along going for a few months now. You know how you might start a new month thinking you’re going to work hard to try better next month because the past month flew by? Yeah…I think that regularly too, however it doesn’t seem to happen. Two months that I’ve been working in the block of the month this year, I either havent actually completed all the parts, or did enough to make it “look” like I had. Oops! I’m a real person though and sometimes life happens. I actually felt really bad about it for a while until I mentioned it to mom and she just started laughing. As it turns out, she had done the same thing!
So this month, we both had to finish one if the sets that we “finished” during a past month.
When I was going through and making this set, I apparently wasn’t paying attention when I was cutting because I had to substitute a different brown in the big star in the top set.
That’s one thing that has been a bit frustrating with this quilt. Some fabrics have enough to make a whole mother block or set of blocks while some have just barely enough to cut out what is needed for the block.
