Wonky Craftsy BOM: January 2012

Not perfect but neither am I, this is the first time attempting these very simple blocks.  I’ve decided to make this quilt for my son using only the magic beans print from American Jane’s Fairy Tale Friends line. First up was the Asterisk block which somehow went off the rails a bit but I still love it and quite frankly, I think that once the quilt is completely finished and quilted, I don’t think anyone will ever notice.

The second block was a wonky pound sign. Again, I wasn’t able to line up the bars properly but it’s supposed to be wonky! ;D

There’s no doubt in my mind I’ll be trying these blocks again (and again) and perhaps I’ll be able to line up the strips next time. It was nice to squeeze in some sewing on a work night but I still felt rushed. One hour is not a lot of time.

    • Thanks Gill! If you haven’t signed up for the Craftsy BOM, you should! An entire month to complete two blocks is completely doable, especially because they’re so easy. I may take apart the asterisk block and try to resew it.
