Block of the Month Updates from Pointless Quilter

It's that time of the month to finish all my block of the months.  The first one I worked on this month was the Fat Quarter Shop Designer mystery.

 Then our guild has their monthly block of the month.  Since this was an easy block I thought I might as well.
Pat Sloan's 2015 Vacation Time Mystery.  

 Fat Quarter Shops Snapshot Block of the Month
 And Shabby Fabrics Pillow of the Month club pillow.

Quilting and piecing is such great therapy.  It makes me happy.

Thanks for looking.

Moccasin BOM Color Inspirations from Gen X Quilters

It's almost the end of February.  A quick month... and although this month's block was quite a challenge, thankfully, there was only one block for the short month.  Did you try it?  Was it new for you?  I'm proud of you!  Part of this BOM is skill-building.  I hope to get you to try a few things you might not otherwise attempt.  Curves are definitely something that take some practice to learn.  Remember you can always substitute another block if it's not sitting right with you.

Here are some of your blocks:

Sew Sweet Simplicity Setting Option from Wedding Dress Blue

The final installment of the Sew Sweet Simplicity Block of the Month comes out today.  As a fortunate pattern tester, I had a  month to think about this ahead of time and had a lot of fun designing a setting plan that used the 12 blocks I created so far (2 each of the six Jacquelynne designed).


By creating alternate blocks and setting the whole thing on point, the finished top is 50″ x 67″, a large throw/couch quilt. If you added a border or two, it would be a twin size quilt.  Not too bad for 12 fancy ...

WIP Wednesday - Technicolor Galaxy from Charly & Ben's Crafty Corner

This years Block of the Month at Pile O'Fabric is the fantastic Tecnicolor Galaxy quilt design. Maybe it was the rainbow or maybe the space connection but this one really caught my eye and I knew I was going to have to sign up for it!

Alyssa's BOM designs are written with the aim of skill building and they are always really well explained. Plus Alyssa offered the Modern Quilters Ireland group a discount if we signed up with more than 5 people which we did!  For the month of January it was gathering materials and printing templates ...

{ Some Things Take Forever. } from {The Sweetest Dreams}

Like my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month...................for 2012!!!  Geez, I just finished the last 12 inch block last week. This wasn't the only quilty project I was sewing , it just kept getting pushed aside while I worked on other things.
This is the first BOM that I signed up for and I made a really poor showing. I had all good intentions to make each block as it arrived but stuff happened.
Anyway, I purchased the finishing kit and the backing so now I have to get moving and finish this baby up. For those ...

Finally getting somewhere from Shared Creativity

This has been a slow year fro finishing any projects. I seem to be doing a lot of a little and not getting very far.  I have also been focused on more hand quilting and embroidery this year so far due to travel and such.

Last year I had many projects that were really close to completion that I could quickly finish up, but this year not so much. I do have a couple that should go fast.  In fact, I have one top that just needs the last border.  If I can find time this weekend, perhaps I will ...

Hi everyone.  For those who are headed to QuiltCon in a few days, be on the lookout for Moccasin!  I hope you all have so much fun and get to see so much inspiration.  Unfortunately, I will not be attending in person this year, but I'll be there in quilty spirit.  :)  My Block of the Month Club Sampler quilt for 2015, Moccasin, was accepted into the show at QuiltCon.
Stop by and see it if you get a chance.  The quilting, done by Mindy Powell, is absolutely STUNNING.  You MUST see it in person.  She did a phenomenal job ...

Sew Sweet Simplicity Sneak Peek from Wedding Dress Blue

How is your Sew Sweet Simplicity sewing coming along?  My setting plan worked out and I finished the top this week.  While I can’t show the whole thing yet, here is a sneak peek to whet your appetite.


That is the planned back and binding next to what is probably my favorite block in the bunch.  This version, with 12 blocks, is a nice size throw.  I am not sure it will be quilted by the “unveiling” date later on this month, but at least this much is ready.

Happy sewing!

Pink is perfect for flamingos from Not Afraid of Color

If I didn't know how much I like paper piecing I would think I hate it.

This little block nearly
I had to rip out many times.
It wasn't til I took this picture that I realized I made mistakes on each block.


This little scrap of blue used is pretty and perfect for water, isn't it. All gone now. It's hard to use up some fabrics while exciting to use up others... interesting.

New Block of the Month from Creations by Melinda

Here are my Allatoona Block of the Month blocks for January and February.

0215 - My blocks

The one with the little squares (36 of them finishing at 6 inches) is the February block.  As you can see, I am using Kaffe for the house blocks and then polka dots for the rest of the house.  I love the background.  I don’t even remember when I bought it but I am glad I found it while sorting through my stash.

Tomorrow is BOM day at guild so hopefully I will have a lot more photos to share.

Crown of Thorns BOM Blocks from Never Just Jennifer

Each month at my local quilt guild we do a block of the month drawing.  The Block of the Month Committee chooses a pattern and color palette the month before and then each person has the option of making as many blocks as they'd like.  At the next month's meeting we display all of the blocks and draw a winner out of a hat to receive all of them.  Each person gets one entry for each block they make.  The more blocks you make, the more entries you get!

I don't participate in these often for this ...

Moccasin Block of the Month Club - February from Gen X Quilters

Welcome February!  Getting through the winter weather in January allows us to celebrate a little, right? February brings us the next block pattern in the Moccasin Block of the Month Club.

Are you ready for curves?  Fortunately, since this is the first block we are trying with curves, there is only 1 block for you to do this month. If you've never sewn curves before, I would suggest trying a couple practice pieces before beginning sewing on the fabric for the BOM.  Need some extra help?  Angela Pingel of Cut to Pieces has a book entirely dedicated to curves ...

Squaring The Circle from From the Strawberry Patch...

"Squaring The Circle" ~ 74" X 74" I was pretty excited when I designed this setting for a group of blocks-of-the-month in EQ7 last summer; I wasn't sure, though, that I could do it. Today I am thrilled to bits to have the top all pieced and the borders in place. I cannot wait to get this one loaded on Snowbird and commence with the quilting! My two year old granddaughter can often be
