First I wanted to complete 10 cross blocks and I got them done. I have to say I will be sorry when I finish this project because I love doing these little blocks. They are easy blocks. If I could get ahead in cutting they make great time fillers when I just want to sew for a little bit. I'm getting close to the end of this project and can't wait to have the quilt on my bed. But here are some of the blocks I did this month. I love the mouse riding the bicycle in the green blocks it just makes me smile
And lastly I wanted to make 2 more flying geese blocks (well 4 half blocks). I picked red and black for this month, not sure why, but I love them. Flying geese are slowly becoming another favorite block for me. I love how I can make 4 at a time with little or no waste and they look good. I will also say that I love having a bloc-loc ruler to trim them, it makes everything so much faster and neater.
All in all I ok for January on my selfish goals. I hope to have a lot more done in February, but I plan on doing 30 minutes every day, so I should make great progress. And if you want to see what Carla is doing (and she is doing some great blocks), check out her Bee, myself and I section of her blog.
