Sew.Happy.Quilt QAL! It has been so great for my first quilt-along! The instructions are so easy to follow, even for a beginner like me. These are my favorite blocks so far, even though the second one gave me a lot of trouble. First mistake: I accidentally sewed the white and yellow triangle in the wrong order on one of the blocks. I really missed my undo button at that point! Second Mistake: I put the whole thing together and I ended up with three points...and one flat thing! The block I ended up is actually a mixture of my first attempt and my second attempt. Lesson learned: Never sew after 11pm. I was measuring 4 times and still coming out with the wrong cut! I do love the yellow and gray next to each other. It has really made me rethink my color combination on a couple of the other blocks. Once again, I cannot wait until the next tutorial! The tutorial for these two blocks is here.
ThreadArt. They specialize in embroidery, but they had some fabric too. I have no plans for the bundle but...TWELVE DOLLARS! I told my husband about this fabric purchase. :)
- Snuggly Layer Cake Throw in Domestic Bliss- I'm waiting for my backing fabric on this one.
- I joined the HST Block of the Month at In Color Order to get more practice on HST blocks. It is currently in pieces (two blocks I messed up during trimming).
*I did manage to get the half bottle of mod podge out of the carpet, but not before I knocked a hole in the wall with the vacuum. Ay ay ay! I probably should have named this blog "The Accident Prone Crafter."
