Have you seen the free 2014 Block of the Month class at Craftsy? I decided it might be fun to sign up for it…..especially since it is free.
The class deal with color theory so even if you don’t want to make the quilt you might enjoy and learn from the FREE class.
This will be a challenge for me because I usually use white, brown or black in my quilts to give the eye a place to rest. If you can see the quilt in the button below……all the blocks go together in a way that looks busy, busy to me. I have a hard time doing this so by taking this class I am hoping to create a quilt that is fun and a learning experience.
Craftsy has a beautiful bundle of Michael Miller Batiks that you can purchase for the class which includes 10 yards of fabric.
I would really like to buy it but I have a pretty good stash of batiks and hopefully I can find some colors that work.
This month the color lesson is on analogous colors and I pulled out some blues and greens to work with. If you don’t like batiks you can use regular fabrics.
Very simple, just cut some strips making some stratas and then cut into pieces.
I need to make 6 blocks……..they are BIG blocks….I have 3 done so far. Are you taking this class?
I have finally gotten our new internet service figured out and had a month where I didn’t go over our usage. Our month starts on the 16th. Guess when I watch my Craftsy classes? Between 2 am and 8 am which is our extra time. I also have a little meter on my computer to help me keep an eye on what I’m doing. By the way, I also got our anti-virus software installed on all our computers, life is good.
skill in the new year.
