This is the block i pieced for the Fabulous FirstTimers #12 Round Robin with the CQI group. The promote button is the sidebar and if you like to do crazyquilting and learn new techniques, this is definitely the list for you…..there is so much happening(all of which you may take at your own pace!) that there is no way to get stale or uninspired. The ladies on the list are generous and talented….wayyyyyyy wayyyyyy talented! ON thenext post i think i will collect some urls  and you will see what i mean.

This block is just about 5.5 inches…probably more like 5.5 by 6 inches . The lightest blue patch is a baby fabric, the next one is cotton chambray and the other two are “silkies” from different thrifted sources. It was hand pieced. First I drew it out, then scanned the drawing, and printed it…then cut one drawing apart and made templates which got numbered. Then i chose the fabrics and traced the template. Then the fabrics got cut with pretty good seam allowance. Then of course they got placed on the backing and sewn down. I like this block and am thinking that i will use this piecing diagram several times along with whatever i have left of the different fabrics. These are some of my favorite blues and if there are enough blocks at some point, a wall hanging may be born. There is just the place for it too in the dining room.

This is going to be a very fun RR….there are only 5 of us, and i don;t know the other gals, so along with stitching we will be getting to know each other as well. We are to do 1/4 of the block we recieve. That’s why this block only has 4 patches….one for each of the other folks.

hope you are enjoying what ever you are doing, and who ever you are with.
