    I've done one of the blocks and then did it again in opposite colors and decided to make a "snowflake" table runner. The material is snow flakes. I think this is going to be such fun to make.

    I am also doing the BOM with Craftsy, I love it, had a little hard time with the 2nd blk., so on the third time, I cut out a 13" sq. to get the 12.5 square. I still had a lot of fun and looking forward to February's block. Good Luck to everyone here that has joined Craftsy.

    I'm doing the free Craftsy class too. Finished both of my first blocks and they came out fine. I was going to share the pictures there, but can't figure out how.

    Just started my two blocks. I usually save the last day of the month to make all my block of the month treasures. SinceI have several going (5) at one time it makes the day so varied it is like a vacation with all the different patterns and colors for each separate project. I keep them in large separately labeled manila folders until all the blocks are complete. I haven't lost a block yet with this method. The folders need to have at least 1/2" bottom for expansion as they get full. If it is a large project (full quilt and larger I use a hanging file folder with a 2" bottom) they hold several manila folders and work great.

    I joined the free class and watched the video instruction but haven't made the blocks yet. (love the instruction though). That's because I also signed up for Peggy Martin's Strip Paper Piecing class that was 50% off - SO worth it!!!! I am loving it and am making a Valentine themed wall hanging. I am thrilled with the tremendous amount of instruction for $30!!!! It's as if I am attending several classes (works out to about $5 a class) and I can play them over and over. So glad I read the thread recommending this site!!!

    I think the class is nice also, easy to listen to, etc. I watched one but didn't make the blocks yet. Looking forward to making them though.

    Yes, I'm doing that class also. I've done the first two blocks and looking forward to the blocks for February. I did them both in one evening. I've never done a block of the month before, but I really like it so far. I've been wanting to make a quilt like this for a while. Happy quilting everybody!

    I just saw the video and dug out some material to try with tomorrow. I can't seem to get the pattern portion to print - and I never have any trouble with my printer on anything. Must be something I am doing wrong by hanged if I can figure it out. Looks like this will be fun, looking forward to the learning curve! :-)

    Same, here! I was considering using some of my Asian fabrics and black Kona. My machine is just back from being serviced and I didn't want to start on another machine. Maybe I'll get the blocks done this weekend.

    I joined this class - my very first on line. It was so much fun that I included the blocks in a quilt I made for the school carnival to be raffled off. I dropped it off this evening and didn't get a picture! I can't believe I did that! I do have a pic before it was quilted and I will try and post it. I actually made up a couple more different wonky blocks to go with the sample blocks I made with my Christmas present - Accuquilt Studio! What fun that was --- I just couldn't resist including the Craftsy blocks. I am using my iPad but it won't let me choose a file ..sorry..guess I'll have to wait and try To post pic on my computer tomorrow unless someone can give me directions - I am certainly non computer smart!

    The blocks look very fun. I signed up and was hoping my sister would join me.

    The pictures of the blocks on this thread are beautiful.

    I posted the link to my pictures of my completed blocks on my blog with the link to the class but I was emailed stating I am not allowed to post my link so it was deleted. sorry it may have confused folks...can't wait to see what we all make. I would post pictures but still have not figured out how so I am just posting on my blog ad also on the craftsy site in the clss discussion. se you all there soon.

    Did you get a response from the site? Perhaps your registration didn't "get there." Try re-registering. Good luck.
    One step at a time, always forward.
