I joined a quilt along last week.
Here's my second block.
My first block was a race to the finish, so the points
didn't match as well as this one.
wellllll, they say practice makes perfect!
I know I have a lot of practice ahead.
I was really trying to be first. :)
Kellie, who is hosting this particular quiltalong was offering a prize
for the first block done!
I love a challenge!!
But....I came in second!!
I did not buy the stitch and wash product she recommends.
I couldn't find it in time.
After struggling with the first block I've decided to
just draw the design on the muslin with a pencil line.
Then I'm doing needle turn as I applique on the those pretty petals.
That's why, if you look closely, the outside edges of the
circle are still raw edges.
I think we will be joining the blocks there,
but the instructions have not been sent out yet.
I think I will have fun with this quilt and will
have a take-along project for a LONG time!
