Skillbuilder Blocks

Wow, does it seem like a long time since you have seen any of these? I was caught up (well almost caught up - still don't have the gumption to tackle the Diamond Carat or Chev N' Hex yet) for about a day and then the next ones came out - Ugh.

Honestly though, it sounds like I hate these, I really don't.  They are exasperating to me because I can't just whip through them, but it is wonderful to be exposed to different techniques, blocks and I love love love seeing how we all do the same block, but because of fabric and quilting choices, there are so many different looks.

I am currently an "I love the glue method" gal right now.  No really, the fabric doesn't shift and you don't have to use pins. Woo Hoo! And a double Woo Hoo!

Because the blocks come out in the middle of the month, I have been a bit confused by which blocks are supposed to be for which months, so....I'm going to catch up right now (thanks to my newly created chart).

January - The First Two -These are Sound Wave and Magnum
February - Mood and Em Dash
March - Woven Star
WOVEN STAR

Woven Chevron
WOVEN CHEVRON

April - haven't even started
May - Geo Swirl
GEO SWIRL - QUILTED

Switz
SWITZ

June
Shattered Chevrons
SHATTERED CHEVRON

Broken Arrow - I have the strips ready to sew together so stay tuned for the reveal on that one.
