In Craftsy's first-ever Block of the Month, Amy Gibson illustrates 10 specific quilting techniques - half- and quarter-square triangles, appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more. Quilt along as Amy makes 20 12" blocks using what you've learned. Some are brand-new designs, others fresh twists on traditional favorites. Craftsy users loved the 2012 BOM so much it's become an annual tradition! Check out the 2014 Block of the Month, Craftsy Color Theory with Janine Burke and Amy Walsh.
