Craftsy Block of the Month - Chocolate and Turquoise

Fun, fast and easy! Amy Gibson demonstrated via video the Craftsy January Blocks of the Month - The Asterik and the Wonky Pound Sign. Here are my rendition of them using fat quarters from my local quilt shop. Each block is 12 1/2" square.

I started my morning by working on my first Redwork Winter Twitterings Block by a cozy fire. It was too cold to do anything else. He is such a cutie - don't you think? The quilt pattern has various whimsical pictures of different sizes. Now I have something to work on while sitting in front to the television. I just need to keep my hands busy!

I added a couple of beads to jazz up the prairie points!

Stay warm!

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; 
I will counsel you and watch over you." Psalm 32:8


  1. Nice Craftsy BOM! I can hardly wait for Feb. block!

  2. Joanie, I'm so pleased to see that you are doing the Craftsy blocks in those (gorgeous) traditional fabrics. I've been hesitating to jump in because I'm not a fan of the modern, large-print, brights. I thought that the blocks wouldn't look good in the fabrics I prefer, but you've proven me wrong. Thanks!

  3. Thank you for liking my choice of fabric. I chose my fabric because I wanted to expand from my typical colors and because my local quilt store stated aqua and chocolate are the "in" colors for this season. I am a traditionalist at heart but yet I am wanting to do some modern quilts too! The only thing is that there is not a single room in my house that is modern and my family members are more on the traditional side as well. I am going to have to work at getting more modern. :)

  4. Joanie, love the red work so far, cannot wait to see it when you decide it is finished. The turquoise and brown blocks are lovely, I have a few fabrics with those colors, but not something I gravitate to and I can see why you want to extend your color choices. What are you planning for these blocks and how many are you making? I have such a difficult time leaving my comfort zone, LOL.
    You need to contact me, I still owe you a FQ, remember?
