My first quilt project

After a few months of lusting after gorgeous quilts I started my first one this year. It is not yet finished, not even close yet. It is the Craftsy Block of the Month project. 2 blocks are released each month. The last blocks will be released in October and then we'll walk through the process of quilting, binding to actually finish the quilt.
I wanted to try a quilt but didn't want to spend too much time or money on it. I didn't know if I'd actually enjoy the process and finish the quilt at all! So I bought some fabrics I found on ConnectingThreads on sale and then supplemented from my stash. Funny how well everything goes together. The format of the class is working out really well for me. I do the couple blocks for each month in a weekend and then go on to my other sewing and put them away.

Here is how much I've done so far.

January - Slashed blocks
 


February - Half square triangles



March - Foundation piecing
These are my favorite blocks! I loved putting all the strips of fabric together. Most creative blocks!!



April - English paper piecing (hexagons)
Not so good at this. I did only one block with the hexagons. Lots of hand sewing. I went back to foundation piecing for the next block.



May - Nine patch



June - Log cabin



July - Dresden plate



August -
September -
October -
