January's Block of the Month
Theme: Squares and Rectangles
It's the first Monday of the month so that means you get to see Heather and my blocks from our Block of the Month series! Excited? :)

This was a welcome change. Squares and rectangles. So much faster, not to hard to get corners to meet!
I am almost always drawn to more muted tones (like Megan's fabrics below) but lately I have been wanting bright and bold.
It may have a bit to do with all the snow around here. And that is has been the coldest winter here! We are single digits for much of the day. Mid afternoon has been in the teens. FREEZING. Maybe just maybe I am wanting spring?
It is fun seeing them all together. Although seems I am a couple short. (must clean my craft room!) This is teaching me the invaluable lesson that a little done at a time can really add up! Hope you like!

Easy simple block...nice and crisp. I like the kind of cross effect with the green print, I think it looks kinda cool!
Each month in order, from left to right, top to bottom. One more to go!
Ahh!! Getting exciting!! Almost done! Now I'm really thinking how I want to finish. Any ideas? I think I will add a pieced border? Or maybe some sashing with pinwheels?
The last block theme is 4 PATCH!! Then we are ready to reveal our quilt tops!!
Four patch can be so simple! You can incorporate many, or a simple four patch, should be fun!
We are using the book 501 Rotary-Cut Blocks for a lot of our blocks.
As well as linking up your blocks today you can also add them to our flickr group.
