And so another fabric related addiction may be on the horizon. I've leaped, blind-folded and head first into the world of quilting. I have relocated my sewing machine to the office/den and finally found an excuse to use my iron.
When I moved here 2 and a 1/2 years ago I bought an iron, because everyone needs an iron, right? Yesterday was the first time I had taken it out of the box! Lol. My grandmother would be horrified.
Next I anxiously opened up my charm pack and began to lay out the squares
Then without fear I began to piece these stops together. I don't want to brag but.........look at these corners
And then before I knew it I had one completed block
I'm now out of fabric because I didn't want to buy too much at first but I've finished 4 blocks
Now, I'll be honest here - not all the corners look as good as the first block. I got a little cocky and over-confident too quickly and I'm still struggling with not twisting a seam on the back (but nobody will see that).
So later this week I'll visit the quilt shop again and buy another charm pack and some backing so I can play more next week.
I probably should have just started with simple blocks but I wanted to play with the cutter so I figured I'd just go for broke and try a disappearing 9 patch.
I can't believe I made a quilt block!!!!
