New Year New Goals

I wanted to do a block of the month this year.  My goal is to have that be the only new quilt I start this year while I finish up some UFO’s.  We’ll see how that goes.  I looked at several block of the months being offered and decided on the Patchwork Barn by Edyta Sitar offered by The Quilt Show.

At first I was going to try to use fabrics from my stash.  I thought I would do more of a rainbow colored quilt using batiks.  These are the first two blocks I made up.

This would be okay but one of the things I like about the quilt is the calming quality.  I think the batiks might work but given the batiks I have it would not be calming.  Then I came upon these fabrics from Craftsy.   I can’t wait for the fabrics to arrive.

Are any of you working on blocks of the month?  I would love to see which one and why you chose it.

Happy quilting.

  1. Wow. Did you pick the greys individually or were they a group? I agree they would be calming. But loved the batiks just not for this project.
