Let's get on with the blocks. First up is January. Because the block looks like tulips to me, I decided to pick fabrics that would convey tulips in the (dirty) snow. Let's face it, snow is only white for a short time once people/animals/vehicles get involved.
Next is February. This was the first time I have ever paper pieced by machine. I just never have had the inclination to do so and really am not impressed enough to seek it out. It was easy for me to grasp, but so wasteful and tedious. That being said, I do have a project waiting that involves a bit of paper piecing.
Lastly, is March. This block is my favorite pairing of background and batiks. The penguin peeking in the center kills me (and was completely unintentional).
It feels so good to be caught up with these. I can't wait to see what the rest of the blocks will look like. There is a growing pile of text fabrics and batiks waiting to join these.
