Amish with a Twist has begun

Posted on

Because I didn’t have enough quilting projects started – you should notice sarcasm in my voice – I signed up for a Block of the Month (BOM) at Pressing Matters Quilt Shop. It’s actually a quilt I’ve had on my radar for quite some time. It’s very pretty and is made with traditional Amish colors. It’s called Amish with a Twist and was originally designed by Nancy Rink. It’s been around for a few years and I thought the BOM would maybe be a way for me to finish it. It started in November and I picked up the December block this week. I actually got to complete the November block and have my fabric ready to cut for December. It’s all pretty straightforward designs and doesn’t look like it will be very difficult. I’ve got to watch my 1/4 seams though. My blocks were a bit small and I know I was one or two threads too fat on my seam. I will just have to be more careful in the next months.
