I was in Joann's last night and this Quilt Block of the Month program caught my eye. I have always wanted to do a pieced quilt, but hated the idea of all the cutting. This seemed like a great solution, I liked the pattern, the colors and especially the idea that it was all precut. All I have to do is piece it all together one block at a time. I like challenges and this being done one block a month is right up my alley. I bought the first block set which actually is putting together 4 blocks for the month. I am starting 4 months into the year so I will need to do more 3 more block sets this month to get caught up in order to finish it by December.
This is what it will look like (hopefully) when I finished.

All the pieces to the block.
The center piece to the block.
First finished block, just 3 more just like this to go for the first block set. I have been sewing for over 30 years and I will tell you that putting this together is not as easy as it would seem. You have to be totally accurate. 1/4" seams and piecing the rows together the seams must match up perfectly or it will look funny. I have a new found respect for the avid quilter, piecing and sewing perfect rows!
