The Craftsy Block of the Month - January

I have successfully ignored some unfinished projects in order to start a new quilt project, but I'm so excited to finally take a quilting class.  I have found this great FREE class online and want to share it with you.

The class is called, "The Craftsy Block of the Month" with Amy Gibson.  The link is HERE.  Every month you will learn a new technique and make two blocks.

I just completed January's class and have decided I love Slash blocks.  Next month I'll probably fall in love with that technique too, but right now I want to make all kinds of slash block quilts. lol

I chose to purchase some new fabric for this quilt and went with an assortment of browns and teals.  I think black and white would be kinda fun.  In fact, I can think of a lot of colors I would like to try but I need to stick this one out with my first fabric choices first.

I've never taken a quilting class before so I am very excited to be able to do it online.  There aren't quilting shops around me and the classes I've heard of do not work with my schedule.  This will be fun.

On to February's lesson,
