Vice Versa BOM: January Blocks

Hi everyone,

AnneMarie over at Gen X Quilters has designed a very creative BOM using traditional blocks juxtaposed with inverse blocks! Come check out her blog and join the fun!

For my colors, I really wanted to incorporate Pantone’s color of the year – radiant orchid.

I took this pic using my camera phone so the quality is not great, but gives you an idea of the colors I’m using. I’ve listed the fabrics below the photo.

A: Kona solid in Snow
B: Kona solid in Lupine
C: Mesh Texture Taupe (03437-70) from Cachet by Benartex
D: Suede Violet by P&B Textiles
E: Studio Stash in Pistachio (AJS-13573-52) by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman
F: Small Flower Pink Taupe (03435-70) from Cachet by Benartex

The small flower print is a larger scale print that I hope will work with this project. I’m fussy-cutting pieces from my yardage (which I got on sale for 1/2 price at a LQS!!).

The January blocks came together pretty quickly and AnneMarie’s instructions are a perfect balance between text descriptions and photo diagrams.

I’ve decided to make the 9″ blocks to make a lap sized quilt.

Here are my two January blocks: the traditional block and its inverse.

Thanks again to AnneMarie for designing and hosting this BOM. I hope to see you join us!

Happy quilting!
