September Swap Blocks

16 10 2012

Yeah, I’m behind. I just couldn’t get the ‘oomph’ going before this. I was also going to make October’s blocks tonight, but I forgot to print the pattern.

Carla requested x and + blocks, from the tutorial by Amy at Badskirt. I found the tutorial to be very well written and illustrated, and putting the block together was very simple.

I almost freaked out, when pulling fabrics for these. I have lots of gray – that’s never a problem. I knew I’d have to reach a little for enough teals, but I never expected to have a hard time finding oranges! I had to resist the urge to go running for the fabric store, cash in hand, to rectify this problem.

However, I reined myself in, and dug a little deeper. I have oranges, just not the selection that I’m used to. My orange collection of fabrics just hasn’t recovered from the Double Wedding Ring in progress.

It’s getting super late, so I’ll be signing off. However, I do have BOM blocks to share – three of them! I’ve definitely got a groove going on, and it’s awesome! Now, I just need to keep this production level up, and I might actually get something done.
