Craftsy BOM March

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!

Fabric by the sea

Don’t worry, I’m not going to post every time I get new fabric. But this was a fun package to get, because it’s from Sprightly Fabrics in San Jose. I ordered a bunch of fabric I had been eyeing forever and I also WON some!!  Yesss, lucky me. I wanted to show you some of the awesome fabrics I got from their great etsy store.

The lovely Floressence collection from Art Gallery in the magnifiscent colourway.

Windham, Type, Keys. Art Gallery, Color Me Retro, Dulcette in azalea. Little Yellow Bicycle for Blend Fabrics. Vintage Summer, Gardenias in blue. Luxe in Bloom, Cascade in agate. Luxe in Bloom, Jeweled Peony in boreal.

The fabric I received in their giveaway. By the Sea collection by Deborah Edwards for Northcott.  Isn’t it great? I can’t get enough of those stripes and spots – useful in everything. It even came with this awesome 1 yard panel that I can’t wait to use for a new boys quilt.

Thank you Monique and Moses! Check out their etsy stores. Do you get that thing where you can’t cut new fabric?  Even though it’s already cut.  So pretty.
