I’m finally caught up with the Grandmother’s Choice blocks! I wasn’t sure that would ever happen. Some of those blocks were pretty complicated. But they were not going to get the best of me. It was personal now. So I played catch-up this weekend and they are finally finished. Whew!!
Have you ever cut out pieces for a block and found out that even thought you think you did the math, they were the wrong size? I’ve done that twice while making these blocks. And I did it again yesterday while cutting out pieces for a small quilt. I’ve found that I can’t cut out pieces if I’m distracted. And I’m kind of like a cat….I’m easily distracted! 🙂 So rather than recut more pieces for the small quilt, I put it to the side. As I had a few minutes left to sew, I picked up a little muslin “sammie” that I was using to practice FMQ. I decided to play. I hadn’t practiced in a while so I was afraid I was back to square one. But I really felt good about it!
Now, I’m really excited to begin quilting the basket quilt for MiniQuilter! I am finally beginning to believe I can do this!!
