Craftsy 2016 Summer BOM

Back in July I stumbled across a new Block of the Month (BOM) that Carl Hentsch is hosting on Craftsy.  The pattern was modern and bold and featured bright solids on a black background. 

Over the next 6-months, Carl will release part of the quilt pattern and there is also a free online class teaching you how to make that month's blocks and demonstrating the techniques used for that month.  

Here are the first 3-months:


During July we made the centre medallion which was all Foundation Paper Pieced.


August was all about sewing curves.  There were 2 different curved blocks to make, and we had to make 4 of each.  The rainbow blocks were also foundation paper pieced.  It was rather tricky getting all the seams to match up perfectly.


September was all about triangles and squares.  The trickiest part was making the flying geese units which made up part of the 4 corner blocks.

I'm now at the halfway point of the project - only 3-months left to go and the quilt top will be finished. I'm absolutely loving how it's looking so far!!
