Quilt Block of the Month #5 is DONE!

For this month’s block I did a little fussy cutting for the center and some of the corner blocks…

I have a small 2 1/2″ square that I used for fussy cutting the circles out…  Fussy cutting is simply cutting out a portion of the fabric to feature, in this case I wanted to center the circles in this fabric.

The orange against the white fabric is pretty spectacular… Purple is my favorite color but I gotta say I’m a huge fan of orange!

  1. I have been following your beautiful quilt now for a couple of months and sitting on the fence as to whether I will do this. Your QAYG tutorials are so great, it is the only way I quilt, and your work is BEAUTIFUL!!!. I shared a pin for the tutorial on my pinterest board Ode to a Quilt.
