2 Blocks

For the last two weeks, I’ve been taking the beginning quilting class with my friend Dawn.  Only with a twist – I’m doing more challenging blocks.  As you can see there are a lot of pieces and it’s kind fussy to get them all lined up, but it’s really rewarding and a lot of fun.

Block 1

There was major cursing on block one.  I also realized with my O2 foot I would need to move the foot over to 4.0.  Where with the new clear foot I bought I can leave it on 3.5 to get a scant seam.  So block one is a little off, but there will be sashing, so it shouldn’t be too bad.

Quilt block 2

Block 2 now was much easier.  I also start doing some basting on these big block before sewing them down the final time.  I found my seams get bang on much easier.  Since there are so many pieces, I’m going to get my blocks cut out in advance of the class this week, so I can just sit and sew block 3.

      The pattern for block one makes me a little bit dizzy, but I love block two!
