One of the most wonderful treats for me is participating in block of the month clubs. I signed up for several and have kept up with "almost" all of them. This week I finished Block 5 in the Canton Village Works Bloggers Block of the Month.
If you're taking part in the club, you're wondering where I went astray! You see, this isn't the block that was featured. The block you see here is the Dutchman's Puzzle.
This is what happened. I had a few problems with the featured block from the BBOM and it just wasn't working for me. The block was a very creative design, the instructions were excellent, and, in hindsight, I realize I just didn't take the time to read the instructions properly. Rather than trying again, I decided that the quilt police would not track me down if I chose to do another block.
So, what did I do? I used my new super duper quilting tool...my iPad, a wonderful gift from Woodworker Hubby for Christmas. (And yes, I am a spoiled girl.) I recently downloaded an App called "Block Tool" for an affordable price of $3.99.
The App lists 102 blocks, dividing them into blocks with grids of 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9. I knew the past month's blocks were 4-grid, so I went looking through the 4-grid blocks.
I also finished the latest block of the Fat Quarter Stars Quiltalong hosted by Moose on the Porch Quilts. I loved doing this block and had lots of success with it. I must have slowed down a little and read the instructions!
Thanks for coming by and I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. As always, it's a great day for quilting!
