For February, I was asked to make Duck Creek Puzzle. I'll admit, I was hoping for something easier for my first block. There were Y-seams and templates, and I'd never done either of the techniques before. But the instructions were very good and I took more care putting the block together than normal, and it came out great!! Look at the points! And the measurements are about right...it is a touch under 12.5", but other people have had the same thing.
So I was comparing the fabrics to the color card I recently got from Kona, and have discovered that the colors that were on the bolt don't really seem to match what the color card said. As far as I can tell, I used Kona Snow, Clover, Ocean, and Lagoon. (I think that the bolts said that Clover was Jungle and Ocean was Surf.) But I guess the names don't really matter too much. I just really like knowing the names so it bothers me that they don't match.
I'm excited for the March block now! And now that I have successfully done some Y-seams, I am ready to tackle those again too. :)
