May Aurifil Designer BOM

The May Aurifil Designer Block of the Month was released a few days ago and I had so much fun sewing it up yesterday!!!   May is all about Red and  Mathew Boudreaux created the coolest block called Faux Weave block and I might be crazy, but I totally want to make this again and again.   Isn't it just so fantastic!!

I mean, how can you not love the weave look.   And those little sashings along the sides of the weave finish at 1/4", so ya, we are talking some tiny piecing. It was a huge help to starch my fabrics before staring and then to press everything open, because some of those seams are going to overlap on the back ;)  

Even though it is a ton of tiny piecing, the block went together pretty fast with some great strip piecing to start.  And using my Aurifil 2250 Red as a guide made it super easy to pick out beautiful reds.  Of course,after the fact, I am wishing I would have choose a slightly different red for the sashing so it would stand out a bit more, but I was really trying to stay in the true red family.   Ah well,   I guess that is probably why I feel like making another one ;)  And that is always fun!!!

So that is my Aurifil May Block!!!  You can find  Mathew's fantastic pattern for this block right over here and then be sure to pop over here to read Mathew's  interview.     And if you make your own Faux Weave Block, be sure and enter a picture of it at Pat's blog ;)  Every entry  is eligible to win a Large Aurifil Thread Kit!!!!!  

And I will be back tomorrow with April's block that kind of got missed due to some deadlines.  But I am so catching up today ;)    

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
