Center Block Done!


Now don't look too closely, especially all you wonderfully experienced quilters, but my center block is done. There was much stress, some very bad "quilting words" and a lot of seam ripping, but it's as close as I can get it. Most of you know my story- I can't sew, or at least I couldn't a year ago so I decided to jump into a block of the month quilt that was complicated.


I am just so glad I am to this point. Now comes the gazillion flying geese that surrounds this and all the other blocks, the triangle border and the log cabin corners.

If you want to see the progression (the girl cave isn't as neat and tidy these days) you can see my public photos on Facebook.

What I meant to say: Ah brings back memories - my second quilt had blocks similar to those with set in piecing - LOL. And it was queen size. I think your center is marvelous! Love the colors too.

Oh, it's gorgeous...just gorgeous! I really like that combination of colors that you're using. I'm working on my first quilt (and documenting it on my blog) and I doubt it will look anywhere close to as good as yours. You're doing a great job.

This one drives me crazy, being that I didn't sew before I started it. There have been moments when I wanted to chuck it out the window! Particularly with the inset seams. My husband says years from now my great granddaughter will be sleeping beneath the quilt, commenting on how wonderful it is that she has her great grandmother's handmade quilt. She will always wonder, as pretty as it may be, why she always gets a feeling of agitation and despair when she cuddles with it! LOL
