    I just redid it

    I will save that corner for a new project, or to fill a spot in one that needs it!

    I love this BOM, thanks Brat for telling me about it! Now I have oner more block to use in the boom swaps!

    The quality of my picture is not very good! I have two calico's and a solid with a geometric design, new Camera! I love the blocks that are being posted, really a very different variety of blocks made.

    Patrice, I love how you can just change them up and get different blocks, what a fun quilt that one will be!

    i didn't throw this block together in a few minutes.
    it took several hours, and i have been making quilts for about 15 years.
    i checked my work at each step. if a seam wasn't straight, or if it wasn't the correct width, i picked it out and re-sewed it.
    i also pressed as i went. that's a lot of trips to the ironing board, but checking each seam and pressing once i knew it was correct helped set me up for success on the next seam.

    don't forget ... we are challenging ourselves to work on blocks we'd normally look at with fear and trepidation.
    slow and steady; expect to make mistakes. just be willing to fix them. that's how we learn. (well ... that's usually the way I learn, anyway. LOL)

    Here is mine. I looked around my sewing room to decide what color scheme I was going to use and found some civil war fabric I have been wanting to use in a project. So my squares are going to be scrappy civil war....I don't know if civil war is suppose to be scrappy but is going to be in my quilt!

    i'm sure many quilters had only scraps to work with during the civil war era.
    your color placement is fascinating.
    it creates yet another version of that block.

    I haven't even started yet! Working on batik blocks for the block exchange. I have some lavender's and teals that I have been saving for a quilt so think I will go with those. Hopefully today....those set in seams are making me shudder already and paper pieced I always have the angle wrong some way and end up with not enough fabric to cover the strip. Patience patience....I need to take some VERY deep breaths. Wish me luck, I'm going to need all I can find.

    I am glad this one is done. I have done many many PP'd blocks. This one gave me fits when trying to place the fabrics. AARRGGG.

    Well you've successfully made this block with 3 colours & it doesn't look lopsided like mine does, good job!

    Yours doesn't look lopsided to me. We are our own worse critics.

    Well after I figured out that the foundations were a different size for 4 of the spokes I unpicked those teensy stitches & replaced 4 of them with a different fabric and am much happier with it now. Name:  2nd try jan 2013002_edited (Small).JPG

    Red face January Block

    Here is my block. I almost feel like I should be making more since 2012 I was making one for each granddaughter. I did the traditional way with the template. I know I could have done the paper pieced without a problem, but I have not done this type of inset accept for hand quilting years ago. So I wanted to test myself. And I even got a 12 1/2" block which is sometimes hard to do when doing Quilterscache. Good start to the new year! Already looking forward to February.

    I really like your block, KLGreene, the contrast and shading looks great-it looks 3D.

    Okay, tada, got mine done today . Thanks Miss Sula it really wasn't that hard after all my deep breaths but trust me I was very careful and I swear it's never taken me this long to sew a block in all my life. Thought I was so smart, didn't have to rip a seam, they all matched, pressed, sewed top togeth then the bottom, perfect, sew each part, seams matched all up.................this looks weird. What the h--- did I do, 1 st pic will show you, same as MaryT,,heehee now I don't feel so bad, I fixed it and final one is the way I put it together....and I did want the middle to spin like it does, honest did that on purpose. But I like it so I want to thank you for making me try this again. Just need to watch that placement a little better..Name:  DSCF1009.JPG

    Jan, it took me a minute to see what you did but then I realized you only used 3 colors also. I think this is going to be one of my favorite blocks, it is so very versatile. and it goes from being scrappy to being monochrome. Excellent block to work with. I am glad this years is a step out of your comfort zone challenge. It is amazing how creative we can get.

    KLGreene, I love your's it is beautiful. Really some beautiful blocks are being made!

    Yes it was one that took time and thought, but that is why I think I like it so much!

    I am excited about Feb and it is only the 2nd!

    I have a very light lavender also and am going to use it in every other block. That blotchy one is actual 2 shades of turquoise and the 2 of lavender. Have the lighter turquoise too and I know I need more than 12 blocks, so think I will make 2 each month, 1 dark and 1 light, then I'll have my quilt blocks. I just never make a small quilt, they're all at least a queen. Think I only have a couple that are smaller and they're only for Fall and Xmas on my couch for a very short time.

    these are all very exciting results!

    i have a hard time using my own imagination when it comes to colors and combinations.
    i am inspired to experiment more in that area as i see these blocks rolling out for display.

    The block is great. The bright, flower print fabrics make it appear to be more of a spring or summer block. But, it's a nice block.

    I think that I was looking at this BOM like last years; where each of the blocks was a rendition of that month. But the more I read and see what others are doing I have decided that I am going to pick a theme of colors and make a sampler quilt.

    I made a few of the BOM from last year, and ended up using them for a seasonal wall hanging, it turned out very nice. But now I am really excited about sticking with a theme, like the BOM that I often see in the quilting shops, part of a kit.

    So I will be making another January block and dedicating my B&W fabric that I have been collecting for years to finally make myself a quilt. And because it is going to be a little harder that will make it all the more special!
