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.
