November Radiance

Carol Doak released  her November Block of the Month pattern last night ahead of the Superstorm Sandy just in case Sandy took out her power.  Hope she is weathering the storm safe and sound!

This is probably my most favorite of the seven blocks in this Block of the Month – so far.  It is called Radiance:

Love how it came out.  Here are all seven:

I think I’m going to love this quilt!

I wanted to share with you a bit about the tools I use when I paper piece – so I took a picture:

  • Sticky Notes – I use these to label the fabric pieces with their corresponding positions on the block.
  • Add-A-Quarter Ruler – I use both a 6″ and a 12″ ruler depending on the size of the block I’m working on.
  • Paper Scissors – to cut the foundation paper (or freezer paper).  Never cut paper with your good fabric scissors!

I set my cutting board to the left of my sewing machine and lower my ironing board to desk height to the right, so I can just move left to center to right as I go. Save lots of time!

In addition to Carol’s Yahoo Group (where you can find the Block of the Month patterns), be sure to check her web site for other patterns and products!

Have a great week y’all!
