February Quilt Square Along




Jo from Jo's Country Junction is hosting a Quilt Square Along using Lori Smith's pattern set.  This is one of the 6 mini quilts from set #1.  These little quilts are 12.5" and are classic designs. This month I used fabric from the Aster Manor line by 3 Sisters for Moda.

These little quilts are great tests for the accuracy of your piecing and your 1/4" foot.  I got quite cross piecing the bear paw having challenges getting things to line up.  Only after all the grumbling and finishing that section did I discover (after reading the directions that I obviously should have sooner) that it wasn't the machine... I was suppose to trim down the inner HSTs just a tiny bit.  Oops.  That was my humbling lesson learned.



To see all the other finished quilt squares, be sure to check out Jo's blog.

Hi Karen...Your block looks great. When I made mine I used bonus triangles left over from other projects so I didn't even read the directions. Had I started from scratch, I am sure I would have done the same thing.

I have some of this fabric all cut and read to make a table topper out of, I just need to get busy and do it. Thanks for the link to your mom's store. I didn't see any simple abundance charm packs but I saw a lot of other fabrics I'll be keeping my eye on. She has some of older fabrics that are hard to find so I'm excited to have found her.

Your fabric choice is very pretty! This block was a test of accuracy and patience! Those triangles were making my eyes cross.
