Skill Builder BOM #1

I worked on the first two blocks of the Skill Builder BOM from Pile O' Fabric over the weekend.

The way she is running the BOM is pretty impressive, with videos and PDFs and very detailed instructions. The only thing I noticed that I didn't love is that she could have condensed her steps some, and that I think she made some of the processes a little more difficult than necessary. I suppose the thoroughness (is that a word?) can be a nice feature for those who are newer to quilting, though. I have a hard time being tied to instructions, so I kind of just used them as 'guidelines'...

Of course, though, I neglected to take any pictures of the process. She has great pictures of everything in her posts, though. You will have to get by with just my finished blocks and a gratuitous pile of scraps.


  1. I love this block, and your colors are fabulous.

  2. I love your color choices for this BOM - can't wait to see your other blocks come together! :)
