Bella Skill Builder - Lazy Angle

Today is a pretty exciting day because it is the last month of blocks for the Bella Skill Builder!!!!   That means a finished quilt is practically right around the corner!!!  So exciting ;)  I can't wait to see this awesome quilt along hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and Sherri McConnell!!!!  And this month's skill builder blocks are all about the Lazy Angle!!!  This was my first time trying these kind of blocks out and they really are a lot of fun!!!

For this month's tone on tone blocks, I found myself again picking colors that had me craving for fruit ;)   Gotta love those descriptive names that perfectly match the colors and maybe make you drool for reals :)    For the small version of the block I used Bella Kiwi and Lime.  And for the large version of the block I used Bella Betty Orange and Ochre.   

I was super excited to try out a new to me ruler for this block, that being the Lazy Angle ruler.  (Which you don't need to make the block, it just makes it easier ;)   It was super user friendly, but I have to say, I wish I would have paid more attention to that little picture down on the bottom of the ruler and adjusted my block for a two color layout.  Because you know I can't just break out from 16 blocks that have 2 color layouts and make the finally blocks 3 color layouts, that would blow my mind ;) 

So I ended up with some of the piecing not really showing up because of the color, and of course, I forgot that I was making 12" blocks and made mine the 10" block size recommended so had to add a little border on it.  But all in all, I think it is still pretty fun. 

And for the small block, I figured it would be fun to change up the layout a bit ;)  Don't these just look like cool rolling hills on a large field.  Kind of a fun way to change it up, but again, wishing I would have just skipped the final step and HST'ing the lazy angle block, but oh well.  Live and learn ;)

And that is the Lazy Angle block, the last set of blocks in the Bella Skill Builder!!!!  Be sure to download  the free pattern and watch youtube video.  And also pop on over to the  Fat Quarter Shop's blog, Jolly Jabber  for lots more Lazy Angle  Block details and wonderful Block eye candy from lots more blogger friends ;)  I hope you are enjoying the  Bella Skill Builder fun as much as I am!!! 

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
