Block of the Month, Classic Blocks

Block of the Month – Orange Peel Blocks

I’m following along with Caroline’s Block of the Month over at SewCanShe.  This month we are doing Orange Peel Blocks.

I played with this block a little.  I made a block with Caroline’s technique using fusible interfacing and I also made a few blocks using raw edge applique.

Here’s the block I finished up with.

This block will go into my sampler quilt.

Classic Block Quilt

For anyone who follows SewCanShe, you’ll be aware she runs a fabulous Block of the Month series.  Every month she runs a tutorial on a classic fresh block.

This year I’m going to follow along.

Every month a new block featuring the colour blue.  At the end of the year (or somewhere in between) I’ll have a fabulous blue sampler quilt.

Here’s my progress so far….

One lonely block in an otherwise empty quilt space.  Well, it IS only January!
