I'm a Blockhead
I just realized that I never posted February's Craftsy Block of the Month Blocks. February's blocks focused on half square triangles, or HSTs. I actually made this block for last quarter's 3x6 Bee, although I used a little different approach. I used a Flying Geese technique whereas this one uses the HSTs. The blocks look pretty much the same, if you ask me.
The block is called Balkan Puzzle. If you remember, I goofed, and made it more like a pinwheel, but I actually liked it just as well or better.
I haven't gotten around to March's blocks yet. March's blocks are string quilt blocks. String quilt as in Val's Heroes Quilt and Spider Web blocks.
So, nothing especially new here either, but it seems like I always manage to pick up a few tips and pointers from the lessons.
If you want to join in, the Craftsy BOM quilt-along is free (which is a good thing).
And one of my goals for the year was to do a QAL and keep up.
So far, so good. Wanna join me?
