There was an error 😦 in the paper piecing templates for Lollipop Candy, the sixth of the Blocks of the Month of the ‘Round the Year’ Quilt. I have now uploaded the revised templates. But, if you downloaded the templates for this block on 24/12/2014 or earlier, you need to make a change in Template F.
– Please start piecing from piece F2, that is, treat section F2 as F1, F3 as F2…till F12, which is treated as F11.
– F1 is pieced as F12.
– F13 and F14 remain as heretofore.
The Master Template will also show the revised Template F. However, there is no change in the assembly instructions.
I have lots to share with you today…blocks made by other quilters, members of my virtual quilting group, Desi Quilters. So without much ado, here we go! Here are the blocks Sobana made in the last two weeks; she now has only two more blocks to make to catch up with all her pending blocks!
Other Desi Quilters have also been catching up! Here is a look at their blocks.
Have you made any blocks during catch-up December? Why don’t you share your work on my facebook page Patchwork of my Life? The blocks are majorly foundation paper pieced and much easier to construct than what you may believe looking at them. So, if you have still not started on your blocks from the Block of the Month Quilt `Round the Year’, you can head here for all the free patterns!
After celebrating a no- sewing day yesterday, I assembled the Southward Bound at Dusk block today. This is Block Seven of the quilt `Round the Year’ , free blocks of the month being posted on this blog from July 2013.
It took me unexpectedly long – almost four hours – to get it all together. But, I love this block! Now finally to piece Lollipop Candy, the spiral block…
I have nothing to show for today! I spent some time on my laptop finalizing Block Nine of the Block of the month quilt, Round the Year, which will be posted on January 1st. I also cut the fabric for the Dusk version of Block Four, Sapphire Fire. Just to remind you, I had made this block in only the Rainbow colourway.
This is a fairly simple block, though a bit tedious to piece. The results, though, can be quite stunning!
What gemstone will your block depict? A garnet, a golden topaz or an emerald, perhaps?
At this rate, I will not be able to complete the pending blocks of the BOM Round the Year quilt before 2015 arrives! 😦 . This is the progress report for today:
1. Cut the fabric for the Rainbow Venus.
2. Started working on the Venus at Dusk.
But actually, I worked on the block for only two hours, which included pressing and trimming after each step! And ripping – I had forgotten to press open a strip before trimming it!
Hope we are three down tomorrow! That still leaves eight blocks to be done in fifteen days at two hours per day…
