I am getting settled, and decided it was time to get back to my blogging and back to doing the monthly color challenge.
For the month of May, the color is blue. Blue is a favorite color for me. I love the blue skies. It also reminds me of a nice blue lake, and robins eggs. I just happen to have a bird's nest under my deck, and I love peering our a window and watching mommy robin feed her babies or setting on the eggs.
This months block was fun to do as it is full of flying geese. I love to make flying geese, they are one of my favorite blocks to make.
For the month of May, this pattern is FREE!!! To get it visit Jen @ patternsbyjen.blogspot.com
A couple of tips:
I love to starch my fabrics. Especially if I am cutting something on a diagonal. It keeps from distorting the fabric. I like best press, but I also like the good old Niagra spray starch. Next time I need to buy some, I might try the liquid starch (STA Flo) and then dilute it. I have heard it works pretty good.
Press and starch your fabric before you cut. It gives a much nicer cut and really makes it nice to work with. I do this as I usually wash all fabrics before I use them. I make clothing as well, and I don't always know what my fabric will be used for when I buy it.
Please check out these other bloggers today and check out their blocks.
