I have a confession to make … I’ve never participated in a block of the month (or similar type) quilt project. I know, shock, and I call myself a quilter. Well, that’s about to change, as I’ve committed to two that I’m really excited about. These are both block of the weeks.
I’ve decided to make mine with 1930s reproduction fabrics with solid white as my background.
I’ll be using solid bright fabrics with a black background.
I’ve done very little applique, so have not committing myself to these fabulous projects (yet!).
Erin’s Florabunda Block of the Month is absolutely beyond gorgeous.
Block 1 and Block 2 have been posted already. But really, Erin has so many fabulous tutorials, I highly recommend starting at the beginning of her site with a pot of coffee. You won’t be disappointed.
My good friend Anita from the Netherlands is doing this project. Here are her first two blocks. Aren’t they beautiful.
Reeze is doing a Tulip Tiles block of the month. I just love this one too. Hurry and download the instructions for the first two blocks, as they will not be available forever.
