Here are the January blocks. See, I'm only a month behind! Technically I'm not behind at all until the end of February when I'll be behind if I don't get the February blocks done. Which isn't going to happen since I have those all cut out and ready to sew. Is all that clear??
I'm using a fat quarter bundle of Double Chocolate fabric from Moda that I've been saving with some left overs from the Memories of Provence quilt and I'm loving the way these colors play together. The idea is to take the exact same pattern and change the look of the block by changing the color placement. I had a little trouble at first getting my brain to twist this without drawing it all out but after a bit of puzzling I managed to do it.
See what I mean? Exactly the same pattern just different color placement to create a completely different look. Of course I can see all my piecing mistakes in these photos so please don't look too hard, OK?
If you'd like to join in go to Open Gate Quilts and get the FREE pdf patterns/instructions and join me. I'm also joining the Flickr group where other bloggers are showing off their blocks as they complete them. Maybe I'll see you there.
