As those of you who read my blog know, I have been working on a year long block of the month project sponsored by a local quilt shop. I am given a kit that makes four 6 inch blocks. Here are August's kit blocks.
I then go to my computer a design an 18 inch block utilizing the four kit blocks in the corners. This is my concept block for August.
Then I cut out and sew the entire block. I have tried to unify the variety of prints and colors by having the middle outer blocks form a star and the center block is always a pieced Dresden Plate. Here is my finished block for this month.
This is the final block for this series. Each year's blocks run September through August. I have my quilt made from this years blocks designed and am working on it. Next year's theme is called "What's Your Sign" and is star blocks on a black background. Our first class is Saturday. I'm looking forward to seeing what the shop comes up with...so stay tuned!
