Aurifil 2013 BOM February Block

I decided this block deserves it's own blog post, because it was really hard. Definitely the most challenging block I've made (there are 60-odd pieces in this 12.5" block). So I'm kind of proud - it's not perfect but it's pretty good and I love it :o)


Heavy Cross - Aurifil BOM February Block

The block is called Heavy Cross (after the Gossip song) and was designed by Marie-Claude Picon-Iperti - the tutorial can be found here. I'm kind of scared where this BOM is heading now - and hoping there can't possibly be anything more challenging than this one. Think lots of 1/16 measurements and tons of tiny triangles ;o) I loved making it - although I'm really glad I'm only making one. I don't have that much patience.

My first two blocks together:




Off to make my February bee blocks now :o)

I'm almost finished with that block and I can tell you that yours is going to look a lot better than mine. I think about making this one my practice block and doing it over and hoping that it will look better. But thinking that way just wears me out. I don't know if I have another one of these blocks in me. LOL. Your block looks great!
