    Here's mine, I know it's technically Feb 1st but I logged enough time with a seam ripper that I'm counting it! I decided that each month I'm picking a different color so all the fabrics will be out of that color. This month was pink because it happened to be a piece of fabric in my stash I was working with already. I encountered some operator errors along the way and I think it needs some relax time and blocking but overall, I was pretty pleased. I'd never done "Y" seams before so I did a lot of reading before hand. Without further ado:

    Trivia, I like it! You are braver than me. I didn't even try to attempt Y seams. Went for the paper piecing.

    Nice job, Trivia. I like the pinks!

    I had it all planned out I was going to have it done on the 31st then ended up sewing the four squares together in the wrong order! I liked it but it was wrong to time to rip, and fix it latter!

    After repressing and making sure I had the blacks where I wanted them time to resew.

    Placement of the colors sure make a difference. The only thing I changed was the rotation of the four blocks.
    Thank you for learning a new technique. Y seams are not as scarey as they were.

    DeDemac..........your January 2013 BOM Whirling Star 2 block has turned out really pretty. I love the look of both ways that you have put it together. Isn't it amazing how rearranging it can change the looks so much? Nice work.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Dedemac, Wow, I really like the green- and green is not usually in the top of my choices. May have to consider this block in green for another project I'm working on.
    Great job. Like Sulabug said, isn't it amazing how rearranging it can make such a difference

    Thank you for all you nice comments. I enjoy sewing and learning new stuff. You never know when things come in handy. Now I am not so afraid of Y seams. Thanks again.!
