I wrote about the BOM my Albuquerque Modern Quilt Guild is doing in a previous post – Amy Gibson’s Sugar Block Club. The June block just came out, and I did a better job wrapping it up early in the month than I did in May.
The block this month is a large Maple Leaf, and it is pretty cool. A really great opportunity to use a bunch of colorful fabrics!
Here is what I pulled from my Basic Mixologie stack for the leaf:
I’m trying to make sure I use new fabrics in the blocks and not just the same pieces over and over. I hadn’t used a tan fabric yet, nor had I used the orange striped fat quarter.
The block came together pretty well, but there were a lot of squares of similar sizes and I got them mixed up for a time. It required some focus to get it sorted out, so as I was consumed by that issue I neglected to take photos as I put the block together.
So limited photos today, but here is the final product – I think it came out pretty well!
I used another cream fabric with writing on it for the background. This time I was more comfortable with the writing going in different directions, especially as the text on the fabric as printed went in all different directions!
So now 6 of 12 complete – halfway done, and suddenly halfway through the year! Wow.
