It's that time again, my interview of the Aurifil Designer of the Month for April is posted and she is the amazingly talented Katy Jones of Monkey Do! Katy used the Art Gallery fabric, some white on white and created a rocker's block to the tune of an 80s hit....
Can you Guess which hit?
well you will need to CLICK HERE to read my interview with Katy, download the free block and listen to the inspiration tune! I have a link in the interview so you can listen while you download.. because I'm thoughtful like that.. wink!
On June 5, 2012 I did a fun interview with Katy about her work and she shared with me exactly the type of fabric that is missing in our world! CLICK HERE to listen to my podcast, it’s a fun one!. When you get to the page scroll to the bottom until you find the “Disco Ball Player”. Once it loads, scroll down the list to June 5, 2012!
look how GREAT the blocks are together!
I love seeing them come in, and I have some of the future blocks here as well.. lucky me!
Want to see MY blocks? I'm caught up... FINALLY!
I took a few photos while I was making the April Block .. as it seems Mr. Ripper and I have became WAY too chummy and he visited with me last night too... so Let's get to it!
I found it super helpful to layout my pieces right next to the machine.
TIP!!!! Do NOT sew the background squares together in advance. I didn't think that through for how I was going to be sewing the rest.. mmmmm.. late night sewing strikes again!
I'm sewing in vertical rows
Remember to sew the 2 background squares to the CORRECT end for the center unit.
Rip .. Rip.. Rip...
What is your favorite phrase for this thankless task?
All three strips are sewn and ready to go.
I ironed two sets of seams one directions and the center set of seams the opposite way so that I can butt them together easily when I sewed.
It worked great!
here we are!
