Moccasin Block of the Month [3]

Three moths in and I am still keeping up to date with this block of the month. It might be some kind of record!

Last month we just made one block because of the curved piecing. Curved piecing doesn't really bother me so it meant an easy month.... to make up for it, this month there are three blocks. And although half square triangles are nice and straightforward, there were quite a lot of them...

I made two shoo-fly blocks


And a crows foot block



When I planned out my colours for this quilt, I took each of the colours in the original and lined it up with a colour from my palette. For the last two months it's taken me longer to work out the colours than to cut and piece the fabric. So this month, after the first 20 minutes of trying to work it out I decided to chuck out that method and just pick fabric combinations I liked!

I find that too, Jennie; choosing the fabric takes the longest time.

Yes! Choosing fabrics can be very time consuming - especially if you are as indecisive as me! How many blocks will you have made before you put the quilt together?
