December T Block – Quilt Along

It is time for the reveal of the second block in the T Block Quilt Along that I am participating in. This a block a month project organized and led by Bella of Then and Again Quilts

For twelve months I am receiving a pattern for a variation of the T bock – the T for Temperance Movement, with much written and debated about this quilt origin’s and history. Please take some time and stop by Bella’s page she has written quite a bit on its history.

So how do I think I am doing with this project? I love the block a month, no pressure and I am actually completing two. Two because the first isn’t quite right and well, I think I could go three or even four and still wouldn’t have it spot on right. Here is my second attempt. (not bad)

First and second attempts and you can see the difference. (The color is true in this first attempt photo)

I wanted to share the block that was done by Bella – it is so gorgeous.

I was really excited to see this on her posting. I have a baby quilt I want to make for my granddaughter & husband who are expecting their first child – its a boy. I was going to use the pinwheel pattern but if I can get those darn geese down I think this would make a great children’s quilt. Bella called this her wonky blocks for this pattern. What do you think, pinwheel or T block ?
