June Block of the Month Club at Christmas Goose

Last night, I attended my monthly Block of the Month club for the Farm Girl Vintage quilt.  As always, we purchase our monthly kits for $20 which contains enough cut fabric to assemble FOUR of the blocks for this quilt.  We were given material for the Haystack Block, the Kettle’s On Block, the Kitchen Window Block, and the Mama Hen Block.   The Kettle’s On block seemed the most challenging, so I chose to work on it during my time in the class.  Darlene, the instructor, spent a lot of time helping me to cut the pieces and follow the directions according to the book.  For the most part, my block turned out “ok” however Darlene suggested I start “drawing on .25 inch seam lines to help gauge my work.  As I complete the remaining three blocks this month, I will follow her advice.  Below, is a picture of my finished block I made last night.
