|Skill Builder Sampler Blocks|
I certainly DO need help with building the basic skills of quilting so I decided I should join in, and here are my first two blocks (with links to the tutorials). I decided to do them in greys, greens and yellows, as I have a good amount of those colors. I'm going to use prints I love, prints I hate, and everything in between. I figure when I finish if I can't live with anything, I'll remake it.
There were optimistic dreams of finishing it before summer was over for a picnic blanket, but I think with the Handstitched class and the other projects I'm working on, it's going to be much longer than that. This is OK, since I can do a block here and there in between other things. I am happy that both blocks came out at 12" inches as they were supposed to, which was a bit of an amazement to me, let me tell you!
