    I've done the first 2 months. Haven't looked at March yet. They are fun. As the others said you have to be careful about the seam allowance. I had to do one of the blocks twice because it actually ended up too big.

    I am doing the BOM and am really enjoying it. Very glad I signed up. I had some problems with one of the February blocks but it finally turned out. I haven't made the March blocks yet. My color scheme is lime green, white, and black. I really enjoyed looking at everyone's photos.

    Just finished taking the Pictorial Quilting Techniques Class by Wendy Butler Burns. I enjoyed the class very much and recommend it to anyone interested in turning a photo into a quilt. Has anyone taking Machine Quilting by Wendy Butler Burns or Beyond Basic Machine Quilting by Ann Peterson? Would appreciate your feedback if you have taken either of these classes through Craftsy.

    I'm doing them and have not had to pay anything for this class. Maybe you accidentally clicked onto another class?

    in quilting it's very rare to have other than a 1/4" seam, except a scant 1/4".
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    I have purchased several Craftsy classes and am doing the free class with Amy as well but have not done the March BOM yet. I have not had time to do any of the paid classes other than the paper piecing and I made a twin quilt top with the first pattern that the insructor taught...I thoroughly enjoyed it! And can't wait to do more.....taxes are interfering with my quilting time!!! As a brand new quilter I am getting a lot of UFO's as I just want to do them all!

    I was just up on the site and it says that you can invite your friends to sign up any time of the year and they can have access to all of the classes including the ones they need to catch up on. This statement is listed under the supplies and resourse section. If anyone is having problems then they need to contact the Craftsy people to help figure it out because there is no time limit to it. Good luck

    I joined the group in February and read through some of the comments and found that some complained that their February blocks were too small. Those who said they used the scant 1/4 inch (a thread or two smaller than 1/4 inch) had no problems. So when I made my blocks I used a scant 1/4 inch (maybe 1/32 smaller) and they came out fine. I had this problem with another BOM that I belong to. When I made the seams exactly 1/4 inch, by the time the block was finished the block was too small too.
    I'm going to wait each month to see how things go before doing the block even thought they're nice and it's difficult to wait. I'm not sure that I'll do this month's block yet as I'd rather see what scraps I have from the other blocks. It seems that this should have been one of the last blocks made.
    Thanks. I think that is a good idea--to wait til a few have done theirs. I hope to get to Feb. next week, and I will try it with the scant 1/4" seam and see how it goes. Thanks for all the help, everyone!

    Here are my March blocks. I used bright colors, because in March, I am always VERY anxious for spring, and the spring flowers popping up.

    I am loving these classes as I am still fairly new to quilting and I am learning so many new techniques. The fabric I am using is left over from a couple of table topper classes I took as a beginning quilter. Hopefully I will attach a picture of the Jan-Mar blocks I have made.

    No, not in the least. I am beginning to regret this, however, I am using scraps/stash, so it will be what it will be.

    I've been doing two of each block each month so I can make my finished quilt a queen size or larger. I like all of the blocks individually, but somehow, when I put the all together for a photo I don't like them so much. Hoping that the sashing and future blocks do something to pull it all together.

    Your blocks are beauiful colors. I think the sashing will pull it all together and make it a wonderful quilt!!!

    Craftsy BOM

    I have finished all my blocks....really like the March scrappy blocks...So far I haven't had any trouble...This is really a nice BOM., since it mainly for new quilters (me)...Each month she teached at least one new techique....I'll try and post my blocks in a few days...I have used a kinda' scarlet red fabric as my background with different black & whites for the other fabrics...
