I'm doing the One Block Challenge from Annette Plog. The challenge block is the Schoolgirl's Puzzle and was chosen by Laurie Simpson.
So far this year I've managed to resist joining every sew along or challenge that crosses my path. My July One Monthly Goal was an exception for a couple of reasons.
|It gave me a chance to put my Cat's Cradle ruler in action.|
|I don't use the ruler a lot but I love how easy it makes these units!|
|It's an opportunity to use some of my Minick and Simpson stash--this is one of two peach crates filled with M&S scraps and precuts.|
|My personal challenge is to get my blocks large enough to make a QOV quilt. No other pieced blocks can be used in the challenge, so it's either make a lot of blocks or build them out.|
|I opted for making just twelve blocks and adding triangles, sashing and borders to get my quilt to the right size.|
I'm loving how it's looking so far--it's going to be hard to give this one away! My One Monthly Goal is to get this pieced, quilted and bound!
