Yesterday I pulled out the previous blocks and decided to make some sort of progress with it. Always wanting to put my own spin on a design, I totally colored out side the lines on this one! Why don't I just go simple?!
Total crazy! Which, in my opinion is so much harder! Three blocks a month are released, not in any particular order, so getting the rainbow effect is a challenge.
There are 6" blocks, 12" blocks, 18" blocks...traditionally pieced and paper pieced blocks. It has been a fun ride, but this girl has got to get on the ball!
This one was paper pieced, talk about lots parts and pieces! It helps to mark each color on the paper template first, especially because I'm trying to make these blocks flow from one color to the nest.

Baby Paw was a traditionally pieced block. It was nice to have a simple block in the mix!

These are the blocks that are finished so far.
In between these, I've been working on a design, wall quilt and tutorial for Benartex. Stay tuned for that! I'll share the details soon!
I made a test quilt from the tutorial to make sure it would 'fly'. However, I changed several things in the final design. It always happens, which is why it's a good thing to test it out!
It was a miracle that I had the exact perfect thread colors in my stash for these odd colors, how often does that happen?! I hope to finish the quilting today. And yep, I'm attempting more free motion quilting!
