Playing Catch-up - Aurifil BOM

Last month, I showed you my first Aurifil BOM's and that little block flop.  I wanted to catch up with the rest of the group by the end of the month.  And guess what?  I did it.

Here is the June Block.



May's Block
 

 
 
And last but not least, that pesky February block that was giving me so much trouble last month.
 
 
 
And it is even the right size.  I honestly could have done this block one more time, just to practice a few of the different techniques - matching all the seams - the points.  It is probably the hardest block that I have ever done.  I think I went through half of my spool of thread, unpicking the seams, and then sewing it back together.  Let's say I had a vicious cycle going of picking and sewing.  The block turned out a lot better than the first version, but it is still not perfect.  (But it just might be my favorite)
 
 

 
 
So, here are January through June blocks.  I am caught up.  Yeah!  (Celebration in progress) At least until July's block is released next week.  It is never too late to join in the fun and challenge your quilting skills. You can find the free patterns to all of these blocks at Auribuzz.

  1. Love how the Feb block turned out...and the others as well. I have the patterns downloaded but I have yet to start on this BOM. I am trying desperately to catch up on some UFOs before my due date of late July :)

  9. These are all pretty,pretty to me!

    I think that last block you had trouble with could have been paper pieced with less headache maybe? Just seems that way to me. I love the way it turned out:)
