2015 Arcadia Avenue Block of the Month FlyAway
My 2015 block of the month (BOM) program is Arcadia Avenue by Sassasfras Lane Designs. Some of you have already signed up and Month 1 has been sent out to everyone.
Flyaway Block
Month 1 FlyAway
I have a confession to make, I have never done foundation piecing before. In fact I have actively avoided it. Those that know me also know that I go where others fear to tread! So when I saw this BOM on Instagram when I was following the Houston Quilt Market - I fell in love and decided this was it - so what if I hadn't a clue!
My major launch will be at the Rosehill Stitches and Craft Fair from the 5th - 8th March 2015. So there is still time to signup! In anticipation of the launch, I am making a sample myself. This was the first of 12 blocks and is called FlyAway.
I have chosen to closely follow the original colours and am using Dear Stella's Confetti Dots to achieve the rainbow look. 
I couldn't have made this block without the help of some friends. Pam Rush got me started and Sue Rowles gave me a couple of pointers along the way. I discovered that a glass of wine did not help, that I was able to match the seams up way better sober. My unpicker had a bit of a work out (I am the queen of unpicking after all).
