New quilt started


Today Joel's mom and I started a new quilt. A local fabric store is hosting a "Block of the Month Club." The first month we paid $5 and got the material and directions for the first block. We show our completed block later in March and receive the material and directions for block #2 for free! We continue with this until we have made a whole quilt for $5! It's a good deal.

I was a little unhappy with the directions and the seam allowance, but here's the completed block #1. This block took us each about 4 hours from start to finish. That's quite a long time. We'll hope that the future blocks will go faster.

Wow, that sounds like a great project! Is this from Jo Ann's? Can you choose your own fabric?

I'm sure the 2nd one will go more quickly. You are so good at this!
