Spice Meadows

Much as I've wanted to join a few blocks of the months hosted by other quilt bloggers, such as AmandaJean and Judy, my guilty conscience always nags at me that I have plenty to finish up in my own closet(s). So, here I am...diligently working on one of my UFO blocks of the month -- Spice Meadows by JoAnn Fabrics. As I sew them, I remember why I don't purchase their BOMs anymore -- their cutting is very inaccurate. We quilters know no matter how precise our 1/4" seam allowance, if they aren't cut correctly to begin with, then it's a losing battle. Luckily I got these on the clearance rack last year at like 60% off or something crazy like that.

Anywho, here are 8 of them all pieced as well as I could given my constraints. LOL!

The one saving grace is I really like the colors. I have 4 more pieced blocks to go and then the center appliqued block. Then I can add the sashing, borders, blah, blah, blah. :o) Can you tell I'm not really gung ho on this one? The imprecise cutting really has me down. Someone help me get over it already!

Hope your projects are going better than mine.

Quilty hugs,

As always, your blocks look perfect! And, love your new header. I even recognize some of the fabrics; they are on my nine patch :) Ady
