Country Threads Block of the Month: January

I've always been attracted to the idea of a block of the month, although I've never participated in one.  In fact, Easy Street was my first group participation of any sort.  My blog travels brought me in touch with Country Threads and they are sponsoring a block of the month sampler.  Each month you make two blocks: one large (12 inches) and one small (6 inches).  Here's my first installment:

Unlike the mystery quilt, you get to see an example of the finished product up front.  They're are several alternative finishes though.

In the meantime I'll enjoy hanging them around my sewing room...I mean studio.


  1. Your blocks are beautiful, Nina. This will be a fun block-a-month. I've been thinking of doing one, too. I know Barrister's Block did one last year and Barbara Brackman does a Civil War one and a women's rights one. She posts historical information for each of the blocks she shares. I'll have to look at this Country Threads one.

    There was a quilt blogger last year who did a block a day. I should be able to keep up with a block a month!

  2. I like the idea of having one little block and one big one. Might join this one. I like sampler quilts.

  3. I love the look of the finished quilt, it looks a fun BOM. Your colours seem perfect.
