February’s Block of the Month

This past Monday we met for February’s Block of the Month.  This month’s block was “Dutchman’s Puzzle” where we learned flying geese.In prepping for the class I debated teaching several different methods & finally chose to teach the old fashioned method.  We get to play with flying geese again, so I’ll teach another method then- but I think that since this is really a beginner’s class- it’s good to start with the basics & grow from there.

The blocks again came out great!  I love the variety of color schemes!

One lady just joined our class & this is her Grecian Square:

Another great month!  I can’t wait for March!

Block of the Month

In January I began teaching a Block of the Month class at A Quilting Place.  It’s completely designed by me and it’s really a skill building quilt for beginners.

The first block was the Grecian Square or Greek Cross.

Didn’t everyone do a great job?  I think all the blocks look outstanding!  Several of the ladies were nervous at first, but once the assembled the block, they gained confidence.

I’ll post February’s block in a few days.
