One of my very observant students gave me this Block a Day calendar for my birthday last month. Now I go into work every day and get to stare at a quilt block, counting the minutes until I can go home and try it out. We didn't go back to work until January 7th, so here are the blocks so far for this week:
I didn't make the block for today because it's very similar to Tuesday's (which was a pain in the ass, actually). I'm using the fabrics I had set aside for this quilt, and may incorporate the blocks into it should I ever decide to dive back into that project.
My favorite so far was Wednesday. I love what the little 4-patches do in the corners. I think I'd like to use this block in a whole quilt someday. Overall, I realized that I don't usually make geometric quilt blocks. I like how they look but I don't enjoy making them. I hate hate hate squaring up half-square triangles. A hatred that often leads to me sewing them and leaving the block unfinished, frustrated, and coming back to piece it the next day. But, the final result sure is cute...
Is anyone else making the blocks from this calendar? I'd love to do a quilt-along type thing, even if we don't end up making every one..
