February's Quilt Blocks

Stashbusters is a Yahoo Group that encourages members to limit the amount of fabric they purchase and use the fabric they have in their stash. This month, the group started a Sampler Block Challenge. Everyone had to find an "ugly" fabric and use that in their Sampler Blocks that will be presented to the group in the next nine months.

This month's patterns were All Hallows Block
and Old Maid's Puzzle.

I made both blocks this afternoon. My finished blocks are not perfect by any means: my points do not match and the blocks are not the size they are supposed to be. I have tremendous respect and admiration for quilters who can make a perfect block with every seam matched. I have learned that I can strive for this goal, but I am not devastated when it does not happen.

  1. beautiful! Quilting is something I've never really tried. It's always intimidated me.

  2. THEY LOOK GREAT TO ME, WHERE'S THE UGLY MATERIAL? I DON'T DO A LOT OF QUILTING BECAUSE EVERTHING TURNS OUT WRONG, NOTHING MATCHES, BUT I DO LOVE IT.

  3. The seams look good from here. But, I am having a hard time picking out the "ugly" fabric.

  4. I haven't been following the discussion on Stashbuster but I did see they were doing a sampler. I'm not a perfect piecer either but I don't go crazy - little variations don't show once it's quilted and washed.
