I’m doing my first Block of the Month (BOM) and I don’t think I like them.
First, you have to build the block the way they say. I prefer to overcut my HSTs and trim them down for accuracy, but there isn’t extra fabric to do that. And everyone knows that the first block you make in a pattern is the worst as you try to figure out what you are doing. But that’s what you’re doing in a BOM, making one and moving on the next month. I think I’d rather make 20-30 of the same pattern once I figure it out.
But I’m committed and I’ve got the first two months done.
