WIP for the Skill Builder BOM

My first time EVER entering a BOM (Block of the Month) Quilt-A-Long! And I am really excited to be participating in this one, as it will last all year long, and the goal is to learn many many techniques and "build up" your quilting skills.
It is hosted and organised by Alyssa Lichner at Pile'O',whom I have been following since she began her amazing blog. Thank you so much Alyssa for this wonderful QAL!
I went for a white background for these blocks, as I have a lot of spare white, but it also matched best with the small floral prints I wanted to use for this project.
You can view the progress of the BOM and its members at our Flickr Group.

I'm Zafira and I live in Greece. I love quilting and Geek & Sundry. Recently I opened a new YouTube Channel called The Quilt Codex, and it's aim is to make 2000 quilt block tutorials! Visit us!


  1. fun fabrics.  thanks for sharing.

  2. Those blocks are great. I really love the fabrics you chose.

  3. I was wondering how these blocks would look with fabrics that were not solids. They look beautiful. Are you curious too about the FMQ lesson tommorow?

  4. I am dying to see her videos!!! Can't wait to try the quilt-as-you-go method!

  5. Hi there!  I also blogged about my skill builder blocks last week.  Fun BOM I think.  I have never done one before either.  I love the fabric you picked!

  6. Love the block .
