Quilt Blocks- January


January, Block 1 – wonky pound

When it came time for come up with a project for my quilt guild for 2014 I decided we should all do the Craftsy 2012 BOM taught by Amy Gibson. Amy’s blog is Stitchery Dickory Dock and she hosts the famous Sugar Block Club. The Craftsy BOM class is free and has great videos and written instructions! This way each member can come to the meeting with their fabric cut and ready to sew. I downloaded this class actually in 2012!!!, but just never had the time to get started. I like the way Amy Gibson teaches it and the quilt itself has been a favorite of mine. The quilt blocks in this sampler are just so fresh and fun!


January, Block 2 – asterisk

Some months, like January have 2 quilt blocks, but only because they use similar techniques.  I am using a bundle of Carnaby Street by Pat Bravo for my fabric selection for this quilt! Leah Day has a FMQ Craftsy class that I took where she teaches you how to quilt this sampler on your home machine…loved that class too!

My Quilts…

I updated the My Quilts tab this week….so if you haven’t checked it out before you can find it here!

So, if you are not a member(free) of the Craftsy website you should totally sign up and take advantage of all their free classes, you can buy fabric there too. For those of you who have taken classes there, I would love to hear which ones and how you rated them:)

Don’t forget the Kona Solids blog hop is still in progress, here is where you can go today!  My stop will be on Mon. Jan 13th so be sure to come back and see:)

    ahhh found the comment button…yeeshhhh ok, this makes it easier….YOU are a gem…looking forward to your project. no doubt you will WOW us

  2. Very sweet blocks, Paula! I have to agree.. Those Craftsy classes are fun!

  3. I LOVE your fabric choices for this quilt! what a completely different look than the class sample. I’ve purchased a few craftsy classes, including the two you mentioned. leah helped me get started with FMQ. I’ve also got Camille Rosskelly’s precuts class, Elizabeth Hartman’s two modern classes (one free), Sarah Fielke’s quilt class, and Vanessa Christensen’s texture class. I’ve yet to make any quilts from the classes, but I got them on discount and have enjoyed watching them! Craftsy is definitely fun.

    The picture of your quilts on the fence makes me so homesick for the South! It’s awesome.

  4. I love that picture of all your quilts blowing in the breeze. Awesome!

  5. The Sarah Fielke class was my fav. Camille Roskelley was good too! She goes over a lot of beginner stuff, and the class includes the ubiquitous Swoon pattern.

  6. Great idea, I love the fabrics and the blocks!

  7. Funny I was just going through this class last night. I added it a long time ago and decided I want to do this also! Hopefully I don’t get side tracked again before I even get started :)

  8. I took that class when it first came out. That’s how I learned to make quilt blocks. I just can’t decide how I want to finish it. I’m thinking I should do the method where each block is quilted individually but can’t decide on the sashing color. Oh well, I love Craftsy! I’ve signed up with several classes but that’s the only one I have “finished”. Indeed Amy Gibson is an awesome teacher.

  9. The 2012 BOM is what got me started quilting. I watched it and tried a few blocks here and there but never made the entire quilt.
