Lucky February was a short month, the March block for Craftsy’s block of the month was a great one! Laura taught us how to draft a block. Which I kind of knew how to do, but not officially. So this class was a really good one for me, it’s nowhere near as difficult as it seems. All you need is a little graph paper and basic math and you’re good to make all kinds of things. I highly recommend her class, it’s free and you can pick and choose, you don’t even have to make the quilt, just the lessons alone are full of nice tips and techniques.
I’m using a bunch of random scraps in bright colours, mostly Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry. As well as some new Architextures and Floressence. This block is called the Economy block and it’s fairly large compared to the others at 17 in. These have been such a fun break from sewing my farmer’s wife blocks, I can’t wait for more!
