2nd quilt block


I started at the beginning of this week on these projects and I learned ALOTTTT about sewing. I have never been a perfectionist when sewing, but you kind of have to be when you are quilting so that all the edges match up correctly. I also realized that I need to pay more attention on where I cut and place patterned fabrics- on this 2nd square I could've matched up the flowers better in the center. ALSO- I think that I will learn more about color placement as I have more opportunities to quilt! This was pretty fun!!

Also- the contest is on Jan 24th... so I am a little ahead of the game- People are still picking up their fabric strips from the Library!! :) I'll keep you posted on the results come Jan 24th!!

This is SOOO cool!
I'm so glad you have the discipline to work it perfectly. I know that is an important skill to have,( not sure I have it!)
Great Job Britta!
