I can't believe I've been keeping up with my $5 quilt blocks. If I do my block, bring it to the meeting and am on time, I don't have to pay for the next block. Not having to pay for the next block must really appeal to me! I find the bit of instruction and tips given in the meeting really valuable too. On this block I didn't cut my fabric correctly. I read 2 - 2 7/8" squares instead of 2 3 7/8" squares. So I was off to the quilt shop to get replacement fabric. In other words, this wasn't a free block!
Lesson Learned: Slow down when reading cutting instructions. Reading is Fundamental!If you've never visited Julia's Blog - it's amazing the wonderful garments for kids she makes. I don't know how she does it! And she is super sweet too. Don't ya just love blogging friends?!
Also this week the mailman brought me a lovely package from Julia! I didn't get home while it was light out until tonight and still did not get a decent picture. She had a contest and I won these amazing vintage linens and some other goodies! Thank you Julia!
