Here we are...the final installment of the Modern BOM!
Doing a BOM sure does seem to make the time fly...for me, anyway.
In this post I will share with you the following...
...our 12th block, Circle of Geese
...a 13th block. I'm kind of proud of this one as it's the first thing that I think I've ever designed, and it came out exactly how I envisioned it. I wanted to include a 13th block for those that may choose to put their blocks on point...a 13th block would make it do-able. For me, I used it to replace a block I wasn't too fussy on....so if you didn't like one of the blocks, or if one didn't quite work out to your satisfaction, you can use this as an alternate block.
....also, very excited to share four different quilts made up of our blocks to help inspire you. Thank you to Karen Z, Stephanie S, and Jill J for working so hard to have your quilts ready to share with the class!
First let's start with the block for June (aren't we glad now that we doubled up on some months!, lol), which is called Circle of Geese.
This is another paper-pieced block. It would be wonderful if it was constructed with a rainbow of colour...especially appropriate during June, Pride month. I did not do a rainbow of colour, only because I didn't have the appropriate fabrics in my shweshwe stash.
Make sure to check the size of the image that you print....mine came out kind of on the small size so I added a bit of extra space on the outside edge...you can see my pencil marks...
(In case you want to know how I corrected the above problem...I was going to just put the block in and slap an appliqued heart on top of the gap, which I have done in the past! Applique sure comes in handy....like a band-aid. Then I had this idea...when I sewed on the inner border of the quilt, I just sewed it on over a bit to cover the gap after I made sure that it wouldn't effect any of the other blocks.)
