As of yesterday, January 1st, Just Takes 2 made available their first set of January blocks.
I was excited to see what this Mystery quilt will look like, and downloaded the patterns right away.
I had a little time last night and worked on the 5 of the blocks.
Block #1 involves easy applique. I noticed this block comes from Dear Jane, which makes sense with Brenda Papadakis as one of the coordinators of this Quilt Along.
Block #2 traditional Churn Dash
Block #3 traditional Square in A Square.
There are optional embroidery designs available for a small fee, but I'm going to leave mine clear for now.
All of the blocks are 6 1/2" except for block #4 that finishes at 12 1/2"
Block #6 are appliqued hearts.
Not really my taste. (sorry Gay and Brenda)
I'm being a little rebellious already and will substitute this one with another 6 1/2" block (yet to be determined).
The good news is I'm having fun already!
I really like the crispness of the red against the white, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this quilt will turn out.
For these blocks I used a solid red, but in the future I plan on pulling from my red scraps. The background will be a consistent Kona White.
