In the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun!

While waiting for the September instructions for the Craftsy Block of the Month I decided to do something quick and less complicated just for fun.

I was given a stack of 10" squares from Craftsy as an apology for an order mix-up.  An above and beyond attitude on their part.  About the same time I saw Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company explain how to make an illusion quilt.  Seemed like fate to me, so I purchased some grey fabric, and pulled some white from my stash.  They really aren't as wonky as they appear.  My design wall is not flat as it hangs over my shelves full of fabric.  Sometimes the fabric bulges out as I occasionally over buy!  Never happens to anyone else I know, but I am weak where fabric is concerned.

This has been happening all week.  

They are only squares at this point and I still have two more rows to put together.  

It's very satisfying to make something that goes together so fast as opposed to the months I have been working on the BOM.

August blocks finished

I'm actually finishing the blocks for this quilt on time.  In case you haven't been following my blog this is the Craftsy block of the month taught by Jinny Beyer.  

This months blocks are both paper piecing.  For me these were much more complicated than any paper pieced pattern I have done.  One of them I had to restart three times.  But, I did it!  I can learn new skills.
Here are all of the blocks to date.
I am enjoying this class.  It's a challenge for me but that's a good thing.
