January – Chubby Plusses

We’ve decided that block lotto this year is going to echo the Vancouver Improv Sampler (at least most months. We reserve the right to swap out a few months!)

This month’s VIS inspiration is the East Van Cross, so we’re going with these chunky cross blocks by Kelby Sews.

Kelby used a single fabric line for blocks, but we’re going with bright and cheerful blocks in this dreary Vancouver weather – we’re using pink or purple PRINTED backgrounds and orange SOLID crosses.

Here’s a pic from the @vancouverMQG instagram account, taken at the January guild meeting –

We can’t wait to see what you make! Remember, each block you make and bring to the February meeting is an entry to win them all!
