In Color Order HST BOM January Block

This year I'm feeling a bit more adventurous with my sewing and in celebration of that I have joined In Color Order's Block of the Month quilt a-long.

Today I've completed January's block using prints from Denyse Schmidt's Daisy Mae line. And, as another departure from my norm, I've use a slate blue fabric as my background color instead of the same old same old white that I always go for. I found almost 10 yards of the slate blue fabric at the thrift store for under $5.00! What a bargain that was, and now I'm putting it to good use.

Still struggling with my seam allowance, so my block finishes up, after trimming, at 12" instead of the 12.5" it's supposed to be. :(
