And, I'm cramming.
My final 2 quilt blocks are due tonight - for my last beginners quiliting class (although I still feel like quite the newby). It will be such a relief to be finished with this class. The Fridays from 6-9 pm was getting a little old to be quite honest.
The top two pics are of the "Mother's Dream" block. I really love how it turned out. My sister helped me choose the colors. The sewing went pretty well - but there were a whole lot of "intersections" and that got a bit tricky. The "Mother's Dream" is my most red block of them all.
Below is the beginnings of the last square. The "Basket". This one is probably my least favorite of them all. Its just a little prissy or something. I kinda rushed through it a bit & messed up the points at the top/bottom edges. I could give a rip, actually, it is DONE-ZO...and that is a very good thing. I may end up doing something different to replace the basket - or I may live with it as is.
Tonight we'll look at all of our blocks together & choose the background fabrics to "sash" them into one piece. I've got my eye on a couple things...we'll see what the teacher thinks.
Next up - Bai Jia Bei. I'm ready to start cuttin' & sewing that bad boy. How hard can it really be, right?
I'm all warmed up now.
