September BOM {1}

Canton Village Quilt Works

Have you joined Jackie's Block of the Month sew a long yet?
I did and my September block was a failure.

I chose Kona solids and an Art Gallery print since I have been really into purple and gray lately.

I love the color scheme but am disappointed in how mine came out. I shouldn't have tried sewing it after a long day of work and with the kids distracting me. The main problem is that all the squares don't match up but I'm not sure if I should worry about redoing it or not. I think if I use a lot of stitches when I quilt it maybe the mismatched seams won't be noticeable.
I guess I will put it aside and after a few months when I finish some more blocks see if this one still bothers me.

At least Tosh seems to like it.  :)


  1. Love the block!! Fantastic job!

  2. I like the solid you used. I decided to use solid too!! Cheers--Sandie

  3. Love the colors you put together in your first block! I would probably leave it and quilt over it. Hope you keep at it. Tosh is so adorable!

  4. Your colors are beautiful! I like that you chose several very different purples, ranging from a fairly pink shade to a fairly blue shade. I absolutely hate to remake blocks, so I'm all for leaving it as is. Because you used a low value contrast color scheme, the things you don't like in the block really will be invisible in the overall quilt.
