Happy New Year!
I am happy to be starting the new year with a few friends.
Time to start on a 6 month BOM.
Are you ready?
On the first of each month,
we will be posting our "color options" as we participate with
Block 1- color version 1
Block 1- color version 2
Look how different two of the same blocks can be just by fabric and color placement.
The fun thing about this project is that it is all about color options
as well as fantastic precision piecing with the use of Monique's rulers.
It is 2013 so first thing you should do is
go out and treat yourself
FIT TO BE QUARTER 6.5 & companion ruler.
It changed my life and I am not being over dramatic.
Accuracy and precision are a breeze with this. I always thought
I was a pretty good "piecer",
but now I am a fantastic piecer!
Stock # 42101-13 color Coco.
I will be using this as my
border and will also sprinkle it throughout some of my quilt blocks.
I seriously love this print!
This is a fabric that has so many wonderful colors that I could use it for almost any
project. The possibilities of beautiful colors to coordinate are endless.
Edyta has a way of doing this with each of her collections.
I keep a swatch of this fabric pinned to my design wall so I can audition
fabrics as I make each of the blocks.
Instructions for each block with be posted at Open Gate.
Make a cup of tea and visit each of the Blogger Girls on
the BLOCK OF THE MONTH LINEUP:
Follow each of us to see all the color options on the first of each month .
I will also be posting some of the ways this ruler can help your day to day sewing.
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I have already enjoyed being a part of it.
Upload your block pictures on the Blogger Girls Flickr site.
I look forward to seeing your block progress.
Thanks Monique for inviting me!
