I'm back again with my version of this really fun project. You can find this month's pattern on this page. Monique has her blog post about the next block here.
Monique designed the setting of this quilt and asked each of us Blogger Girls to choose a block. This month's pattern was chosen by Jodi. I have loved all of them so far!
I went to work on this month's blocks by first choosing the fabrics I wanted to use for each version. Then I looked over the pattern to see how both blocks differ. I've said before that I get excited about these BOMs because of the manipulation of the same block to get two totally different-looking blocks. This year, however, some of the changes are created not just by value placement, but also by turning some of the units in other directions or substituting a single square in place of a four-patch, etc. Since I really loved the challenge of just changing the color/value placement, I'm sticking with that this year--how you create your blocks is up to you.
This is the first block I did:
The directions for the second version involved turning the "house" shapes that are shown in the block above in to the center so that the "roof" touches the center. I chose to leave all the pieces in the same position. This is my second version:
Speaking of which...
You can check out Sherri's blocks at A Quilting Life, Lissa's at Moda Lissa, Denise at Quilters Window, and Jodi at Pleasant Home
I also know that Auntie Em at Quilt Crossing is also working on this project. She is using 30s repros.
If you are working on any I would love to share them, too. Just email me.
I'm still spending my day at the military retirement class. There is some good information, but more comfy chairs would be welcome!
Have a great day!
