Blue Ramona

This is my second 30's basket block.  I made this yesterday and really enjoyed it.  I've need to remember to be careful how I cut the basketweave fabric.  I think I only have a yard of it.

Here is February's block for the BOM at my LQS.  Our leader's name is Ramona so I've taken to calling my blocks Ramonas.  One thing I need to remind myself each month is that Ramona only adds 3/8" when cutting out for her HSTs.  I prefer to add 7/8" so I have extra room for trimming.

I'm hoping to make my 30's block this weekend.

BOMing along

Two more blocks from the Chocolatier Quilt.  These feel so tiny after making all of the PA Dutch blocks.  I did remake the pinwheel block as the center was about an eighth of an inch off.  It was really bugging me.

I also bought a new pressing stick at the Saturday sampler at my LQS.  This one is only nine inches instead of my 18 inch one.  It's easier to use on this small blocks.

I've already started on the next set of blocks.  And my unfortuate Arrowhead block is going to be remade-again!  This is what it looked like before:


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
