My design wall has been propped up once again and although unsafe, it is usable at the moment. On the design wall today are my Aurifil Designer of the Month blocks.
Here is block #5 called Santa Barbara Tile by Minke Kim. The photo tutorial on Pat Sloan's blog was excellent as it helped me figure out how to sew this unique block together. It was an interesting construction method and surprisingly came out to the correct size. My only concern is that the outside of the block is all bias edges, so I stitched around all sides to hopefully stabilize it until it's sewn into the quilt (likely some time in 2020!)
Here are my first 3 blocks. January's block is still under construction, and I'm not going to make the paper pieced bridge block from April. June's block will be posted this week, so I'm right on schedule. I love it when that happens!
