The January block has been added to Craftsy!!
I've decided to make my Block of the Month blocks in an assortment of batiks! I've picked a selection of fat quarters in lights (whites and off-whites), darks (navy blues), mediums (turquoise blues) and accent colour (orange and salmon).
I love making flying geese with the method that we show in the pattern, but I hate throwing away the triangles that are trimmed from the blocks. So, when I draw the diagonal line on the back of my fabric squares, I also draw a second line 1/2" from the first.
Then, I trim between the two sewn lines and press the seam towards the darker colour.
Here it is - the January block!! I just love it and can't wait to see what Nellie's block looks like!!
