So here are my completed blocks to date.
I'm using a group of fabrics that I've had for quite a while (5 years or more). I bought them from a few different ranges in a color palette I'm usually not attracted to (mutated pinks, browns, yellows, orange and reds...). But I liked the prints and the overall look of the fabrics when grouped together so I figured they would make a nice quilt - eventually. When this Craftsy BoM came up I didn't want to purpose buy fabric for it so I started digging around in my stash and found these all packaged away together. Perfect.
I'm going to start Aprils blocks sometime today. I hear from the Craftsy blog it's hexagons and hand piecing. I LOVE to hand piece though I've never created hexagons so I'm looking forward to this month. I like getting a break from both my sewing machine and my sewing room. Hand piecing lets me take my project on the go, like out to the patio to enjoy the sunshine and breeze while drinking sweet tea. And it slows down the pace. When I move myself away from the sewing machine I naturally change my rhythm and breath more without feeling the need for speed. Yes, April is going to be a good Craftsy month I think.
Oh and Happy Easter!
