Paper-pieced Block of the Month

Have I mentioned this one before? My guild is doing it's block of the month challenge in 2013 and this year, we're doing paper-pieced blocks chosen from Carol Doak's 300 Paper-Pieced Blocks. Each month, one of our leaders (Kate) chooses a block and we all do it in whatever fabrics, size, or quantity we want. We keep these blocks for ourselves--no exchanges involved.

My challenge to myself is to work completely from scraps. I'm doing four 4" blocks each month. No idea what I'll do with them yet but I'm having a blast!

January's block--starting out simple for those who may not have paper-pieced before.

My faves so far. Had some great fabric to play with here.

April blocks. Not as fond of these just 'cause trees were too small to do much with, but they work.
