March Blocks

It is already March, where has the time gone?  After watching the Craftsy.com video for Amy Gibson's Block of the Month class, I got started on the new blocks.

First I have the String Block.  I decided to pretty much follow instructions on this block.  I cut one or two strips from each fat quarter or scrap from previous projects. Then I pieced each 6.5 inch block, cut it down, then stitched them together. I wasn't a real fan of the block until I cut down each block.  There are so many possibilities for this block.  You could rotate the blocks so that the white pieces make an X or my favorite, a chevron.  Overall, much easier than I thought it would be, just like every other block we have made so far.

Block 5-String Block
The sixth block in the series is the Broken Spider Web Block.  I decided to mix things up a bit and use the blue and white print as a background print.  Then I used one of the yellow prints, cut all of the strips to 1.25 inches wide and pieced it first to outline the blue and white print.  Then I used the blue and white prints for the "web" portions.  I really like how the center stands out, it is one of my favorite prints in the collection.
