Halloween Figs January Blocks

Halloween Figs – January

Continuing along with this beautiful Block of the Month… Although this pattern’s instructions are sorely lacking in organization, I am thoroughly enjoying this sew along. I think it is the actually the beautiful fabric and complexity of the blocks.

I am actually getting better at matching points and getting consistent 1/4″ seams now.

Summer Moon – December

I’m caught up. I think this was the last month for doing blocks. Next month, we start framing our blocks, I think. These little blocks are all so sweet. I’m glad now that I chose the vintage colorway.

Friendship Star Block

Friendship Star is easy. However, putting the four connector corners on each cornerstone piece is a little tricky. The pressing instructions were key to getting the points to nest.

Rocky Mountain Puzzle Block

I didn’t think I’d like the Rocky Mountain Puzzle Block, but after I got it pieced, I love it.

Weathervane Block

I got my points perfect on this one. I’m just so proud. Carrie Nelson took a lot of time with the instructions and her pressing instructions are awesome! I am learning so much.

I think the January block fabric has shipped, but I’m not received it yet, so I can officially say I’m caught up with this until it gets here.

Milky Way Block

12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″

Easy easy easy using connector corner for the points of the windmill. The center square is actually 4 half square triangles, the the block goes together in 4 easy quadrants. 16 of these blocks would make a nice quilt by themselves.

Autumn Lily Block

8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″

Let me begin by saying that I am NOT a fan of appliqué. I used Heat and Bond using a blanket stitch with raw edge appliqué. I’m not really pleased with it. After I get everything else done, if I have enough fabric, I may revisit these blocks and do needle turn appliqué. The raw edge just doesn’t look durable. However, it is a pretty block.

Halloween Figs Block of the Month

Halloween Figs – November

So, I’ve had these blocks for done for some time, but I got busy over the holidays and didn’t get them posted. They turned out beautifully. I am just so pleased with the design of this project and the fabric. The instructions are not written as well as other patterns I’ve used, but if you’re careful, you can figure it out.

Crown Star Block

6 1/2 ” x 6 1/2″

This block looks simple, but it is a bit time consuming. I love how the grey fabric gives the crown a bit of class.

Box Star Block

6 1/2 ” x 6 1/2″

I am very proud of how all of my points matched up on these two blocks. They look crisp and professional.

Welp. I didn’t exactly keep up with the posting of individual blocks. Let’s just fast forward to the finished project.

It’s such a fun quilt. I enjoyed it so much I will make more for gifts. The picture blocks are awesome and were more simple than I realized.
