Here are my first blocks, like I said before I would've tried to cut out triangle, pieced them together and crossed my finger hoping it would turn out alright. This was my first experience with HSTs.
I liked this BOM so much I joined lots of other things along the way such as SALs, QALs, and a virtual bee. At this point I seemed to have my hands in everything and to be honest I got a bit overwhelmed. So I got a little behind after these blocks.
I would say it was a combination of having too much on my plate and this block that did me in. I really had a hard time making one of them because I wasn't in love with it and I couldn't get past it for a while. I saw what others were doing with it on the Flickr page and that really got me inspired.
In the end, November came and it was time to put the top together and I was 4-5 sets of blocks behind but I was so in love by the way the top was suppose to turn out that I was determined to make them all and get a complete top. The blocks are put together in the most unique way to make this beautiful top.
I am absolutely in love with it. It's so different from everything else I've made this past year and it really shows how much I've learned. The last two blocks are my favorite and I would say reflects my style the best s far as fabric choices.
Overall I would say I am extremely happy with this BOM and this is the first to many more. Linking up my finish over at Crazy Mom Quilts.
