Block Lesson #6 // Skill Builder BOM

This post is part of a series of posts for the Skill Builder BOM (Block of the Month). To learn more about the block of the month or to see a list of all posts click here.

I am really excited about this month’s blocks, I absolutely love how both of them turned out and they may just be two of my favorite blocks yet! This month we will be perfecting two methods we have already learned Foundation Paper Piecing and HST piecing. Last week when I was working on the blocks, I had shared my progress on Facebook and had asked for suggestions on names. You all had so many awesome ideas, but I chose Broken Arrow and Shattered Chevrons!
