On Sunday, I worked on my blocks of the month. This is the sweet pea block and it was fun to put together. The only thing that was weird with the pattern was how the flower stems attached to the bottom of the flower. They are off center, which I’m sure the pattern designer did to eliminate some of the fabric bulk, but it looks odd to me, and I had to mention it so anyone looking at the picture didn’t think I had totally screwed up.

This quilt pattern has something new to learn in each block.  Some of the techniques I already know, some I’ve learned for the first time, and some I’ve tried before and been less then successful.  This is the case with the second block for July. I tried and failed miserably, finally tossing the pieces in the garbage.  After perusing two books of blocks, I picked out one to substitute for the disaster and cut out the pieces yesterday.  I’m sure this block construction will go a lot smoother.
