So this is the first package. Sorry for the glare, but football was on & I didn't feel like taking the time to get rid of it. You can still see what the block will look like...IF I follow the instructions. I have a way of doing my own thing.
These are the fabric pieces...all neatly cut & ready to go. I do like that I don't have to cut the pieces, however, I am penciling in stitching lines as I've decided to piece these by hand. Good for while I'm "watching" TV.
And here is what I accomplished during the Indy/Cincy game today. You can see that already I've placed the 4 patch block differently than in the instructions...but the way I had pressed the seams, they nested this way...so that's the way it is.
I've got other projects in the works, so that's all I finished today. We've given ourselves until the end of the month to finish & blog about each block...so I've got a good start.
I do have to say that I'm not sure about how this will all finish as a quilt top. This fabric from JoAnn's would not be something I'd purchase from the bolt. There is a lot of sizing in it & from my experience sewing I know there can be issues with that once washed. But this is still a fun challenge & I'll make all the blocks & see where it goes from there.
OK Bev...have YOU started your block? I can't wait to see what colors/patterns are in yours.
I'm linking up to Kathy's blog for Slow Stitching Sunday...where I've been MIA for awhile as all my projects have been for gifts...and I still can't share all of them, but I will once I finish everything. Christmas here goes on well into January or February...my friends know how it goes.
