Quilt Block of the Month(s)

I have both May and June block(s) of the month this time.

 These were both so fun to sew and they were completely different techniques!  One is paper piecing, the other one teaches how to make flying geese.  I absolutely love learning a new technique each month.  Some of these I have done before, but it seems like everyone does it just a little bit different and it is great to learn all the new ways!

Block of the Month-April

Here is my new Block of the Month block from the “Sew Classic Sampler”.

 It is called a Dresden Plate.  I have never made one of these before and thought that they looked really hard, but guess what?   It really was not that hard and I had fun learning how to make this block and making it!

I love the applique on this block and I learned how to make “perfect circles”  by using a template and then run a gathering stitch around the outside and gathering it around the template.  Then iron with a good spray starch that has been brushed around the edges to get that perfect circle!  They also taught me how to get my corners matched up and make good points at the tutorial they had at  “Just Sew”

Block of the Month Club

I am so excited!  I joined a block of the month quilt at Just Sew in Highland, Utah!

I absolutely love the colors and the patterns in this quilt.

The pattern for this quilt is called:  Sew Classic Sampler.

This pattern  is designed to teach three kinds of piecing (regular, paper and template piecing) as well as a little applique.  It is a very stunning quilt and I am SEW excited to be doing this!

These are my first two blocks that I have finished for this month:
