And Sew On Block of the Month - January!

Hi!  Hope your January is going great!  I wanted to share a new skill I'm learning - foundation paper piecing!  Over at Quiet Play, Kristy is doing a BOM where we get to download a free block each month from Craftsy to make a wall hanging by the end of the year.  The blocks are all based on a sewing theme and we work up to a much more difficult block. Very fun!

Here's my January block below!  It will be fun to get a different design to work from each month!

You actually sew on the lines of a printed page, carefully adding each section one at a time.  I embroidered the ruler for fun.  I used a bit of Flea Market Fancy too, and the fabric that looks black is actually Robert Kaufman quilters linen (it has a pattern).  I like the way it turned out - it was really easy!

I can't wait for February!


  1. Oh I love your scissors fabric! How perfect :)

  2. Yes that scissors fabric is clever placement! I like how the directional flea market fancy makes it look like that could be the edge of a table.

  3. Love it! I would never know this is a new skill for you!

  4. Your block looks fab! Loving the scissors fabric too!!


Please leave a comment! I'm new at this and need your help to make it better! Also, I'd be very honored if you follow me! : )
